    The GTX 780 is being launched tomorrow and then GTX 770 the week after. No idea if prices will even drop, the GTX 770 will have more impact on the 7970 I suspect.

  4. Based on how low the frame rate is on high and Very high it will cripple fps on NV hardware aswell unless you have a dedicated card for Physx.

    Not really. I have a single GTX670 overclocked a little paired with i7-3770K @ 4.5Ghz, I maxed out all available in-game graphics settings (VeryHigh) with phsyX on except leaving SSAA OFF and I have consistent smooth 60fps most of the times with adaptive vsync on (though gunfights and numerous creatures charge me at once still dips down to 40fps), places with extensive amount of smokes and particle effects like snow wind, wreckages on the surface still dips me down to 40fps. But overall I'm very happy I still get 60fps most of the times...

    Beautiful rich game. Didn't know about the patch but it runs perfect with my HD6870 at 1920x1200 on my 28".

    You forget to mention the 2nd most important thing next to the resolution.

    Run perfect at medium settings.

    Am I the only one that noticed that SLI isn't exactly working well? The scaling is dirt poor for my 680s and as as this review indicates it is also poor for the 660s. I was expecting about a 80% boost in performance considering these were "Metro beta drivers"...not a pathetic 40% boost in performance. I can't even stand the game on 5960x1080 at any of the quality settings. I have to play on the 720p variant of triple screen and even then high game somewhat cripple my system pulling a pathetic 45 fps. I don't even have SSAA enabled.

    I installed the new drivers, new game update, and turned off advanced physx and I was able to play the game at about 60 fps on 5960x1080 on very high settings. My GPU usage went from 50% on each card up to 85% so it looks like the scaling is getting better.

    Wow such a demanding game just like its predecessor. So im confused in this respect, why does overclocking not make much of an impact. Does this game just not use up the full strength of the processors or what?

    I have an FX-8350 Overclocked at 4.7, I like the fact this game will use up to 6 threads because that going to come in handy.

    Cant wait to try this on my 2 HD 6990's and FX-8350 to see how my machine holds up to it on Ultra :p

    Holy processor bottleneck in that build.

    Even at 4.7Ghz.

    You have $1400 dollars in gpus powered by a $200 cpu?

    Yea, it's fine, I don't experience a bottleneck or if I do it's very subtle. I've benched my computer testing it and I can hit 100 on all 4 cores and my CPU does not max fully. My phenom I used to have did bottleneck it though.
