    That's weird, it loads quite quickly from my SATA2 drive. But a few people have said loading is a bit slow for them, maybe it's some fragmentation issue (I didn't bother doing the defrag thing that steam recommended me to).

    My levels load so quickly I don't have time to read the tips and plot summary and that's on a sata 2 HDD. I have 8Gb of RAM though so that might be the reason?

    Load times are fine here too (generally 5 to 10 seconds), 1.5 TB SATA 2 HDD. Only 4 GB RAM as well.

    I've had the occasional stutter but only since I put it across 3 screens, on 1 only it's smooth as.

    Since switching tessellation off I haven't had any issues at all with the game.

    I'm having issues (as are many others) with stuttering; this is the first game in a long time I've had issues with.

    I'm having performance issues in game but I think that's my PC being almost 5 years old. Upgrade soon :)

    In terms of load times, they're very quick & I'm on an old Raptor drive.

    I'm holding fire until my upgrade so I can play the game in all it's beauty. But from what I've seen, first 10 mins of game, it looks very promising and the HUD is clean and tidy and pushed out as opposed in the centre FEAR 2 for example eurgh

    I've sorted it by moving the game on to my SSD, even with all the settings maxed it isn't a looker by any means.

    eyah read people are having issues for some reason on nvidia forum.. maxed out here with overclocked ati- everything including tessellation with aa and it ran cherry

    maybe some instability with your setup

    that's the thing with pc- it's not console plug and play.. so when you get a game that isn't optimized to hell by nvidia to make them look good- the weak points show and the word sucks will come up alot (couldn't be further from the truth with this game though- was a lot of fun =])

    I've had no problems for a good while now, especially after switching AA modes.

    It's still extremely jittery and there is still an issue with tessellation and the occasional crash.

    (580GTX SLi)

    I've noticed it'll be fine for a few days, then crash. After that, it'll constantly crash.
    I then check the integrity of the game cache in steam, it downloads something, and it runs fine again for ages.

    Has anyone had any problems with stuttering since the latest update? I didn't have any issues with stuttering before the update, but now it's bad I'm going to have to leave the game if I can't fix it. Looking at the change log this update should have improved stuttering issues for those that were having them.

    I'll try refreshing my graphics drivers later but I was wondering if anyone else was having the same problem.

    Getting horrendous stuttering of both video and audio in the pre-rendered cut-scenes since the update. I'm right near the end as-well and the cutscenes are coming thick and fast... might have to put it on the back burner until this is fixed :blah:

    I've not a had a cut-scene problem, just during normal game play. It's a shame, I'd just played though the first one again to get me in the mood, I can't believe how long the first one was (not played since 2002).

    I was having problems with random crashes until I came across the voltage bump work around for 580 cards. I had couple of good evenings play, then the update introduced the stuttering issue, don't think I can play on unless it goes away.
