    wow, superb graphics. is game is one of THE reason i built my new computer, im sure many other people are the same.

    wow. i thought they said the game can be played at 1280x1024 with a 8800GTS :(

    what sort of framerates are you getting with your 640MB GTS? and are settings maxed out playable?

    It was stated quite clearly in the article that this is a beta and the graphic performance has not been optimised yet.

    Well, it's a beta so it isn't optimised code or indicative of final code at all. But, as it was, with the 640 GTS it was ussually around 10 FPS with everything on High (VERY high is greyed out). With the ultra is was more like 12-15 FPS on those settings.

    I actually dropped to medium and low in order to get the feel of the game, reserving the high settings for the wow factor and screenshots.

    It was stressed that this is a beta so there's a LOT of optimisation still to come. I would be greatly surprised if an 8800GTS won't be able to play it on high at 12x10 come final release. :)

    So, how did it use the cores on your cpu? Did you run it with a dualcore or a quadcore?

    dual, I believe. It's just more representative of most gamers.

    You are breaking the NDA.

    Bit-tech has signed no NDA and the Terms and Conditions don't explicitly mention an embargo of any type. However, it appears there are timing problems between EA and ourself and in order to ensure that we can continue to work closely with EA's UK PR team, we will be removing the story until tomorrow morning.

    Sorry for all the confusion and replacement content should be up shortly to keep you all entertained. This article will be going live again early tomorrow morning as part of an agreement with EA.

    The test was under XP using DX9 or under Vista and DX10?

    While you'll now have to wait until tomorrow to read it, the test was done using Vista but the beta only allows DX9. DX10 option is not enabled.

    sorry. i know it's been said many times, but i still wanted to know what kind of performance one would get for Beta. so i can set myself a rough target of what to expect.

    It's not a valid NDA unless it's signed and stamped. this so called "NDA" is a joke. go crazy:
    http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=98166&page=10

    the performance of the BETA is pretty bad. okay, it's really bad, it gives sub 30 frame rates with 8800GTX@720p

    after Crytek delayed the Demo, they pretty much lost my interest. there's only so long one is willing to run for a game :/
