Opps! I missed the 245 different test part Thanks
I bet you are sick of rubble.
Yeah I am over it mate Its cool the first few times but before long you don't even notice it!
HAHA! well done Steve! I don't think I could ever look at a game test over 100 times let alone well over 700+ times,
Thats dedication right there!
I bet he was mumbling 'not again goomba' in his sleep that night.
There seems to be an issue on this game where the PhysX particles are on the GPU but cloth is still being processed on CPU even if you have a dedicated card for it, so that can cause quite a big slowdown. On my system, PhysX turns itself off after about 30 mins or so of playing anyway.
I hope these issues get patched soon....
Why not any X6 CPU?
Give me one and I will add it. AMD have a sample shortage and we had to send ours back...
A huge chunk of PhysX (cloth) is being processed on CPU in all scenarios: http://physxinfo.com/news/3892/mafia-ii-is-not-using-gpu-for-physx-cloth-simulation/
That's why CPU powee is critical if you want to play with PhysX enabled.
I wish techspot would had included an Athlon II CPU for budget-minded gamers like me. Also for the sake of determining the performance gain by the inclusion of L3 cache.
