Re: The sexy HD 5970...

GTA4 benchmark. Everything set high as possible except:
View Distance: 30
Detail Distance: 30
Shadows: Off
I'll up these and do comparisons later.

I noted using GPU-Z that both GPU's were near 100% utilisation at the start of the benchmarks and maybe 40% towards the end.

I did 3 runs, here is the average results:

Average FPS: 61.00
Duration: 37.43 sec
CPU Usage: 36%
System memory usage: 75%
Video memory usage: 90%

Graphics Settings
Video Mode: 2560 x 1600 (60 Hz)
Texture Quality: High
Texture Filter Quality: Highest
View Distance: 30
Detail Distance: 30

Hardware
Microsoft® Windows Vista" Ultimate
Service Pack 2
Video Adapter: ATI Radeon HD 5900 Series
Video Driver version: 8.14.10.700
Audio Adapter: Speakers (Creative SB X-Fi)
Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU 920 @ 2.67GHz

Re: The sexy HD 5970...

Did a bit more testing in GTA4, seems the default benchmark isn't representative of real gameplay framerates at all. During normal gameplay GPU's are ~50% utilisation, similar to CPU. Framerates range from 20fps to 120 fps with the above config.

Seems GTA4 is still really br0ke when it comes to performance.

I've half a mind to write the Rockstar donkeys an strongly worded email asking why only ~50% of my GPU and CPU are being utilised.

Turning on shadows looks great but has a massive fps hit at this res

Re: The sexy HD 5970...

Yea GTA IV is teh fail on ATI GPU's as I found when I had a 4870, moving to the GTX 260 which should be on par got me a 50% boost in performance.

Re: The sexy HD 5970...

I'll post if I find any ATI GTA4 cures, turning off shadows defo helps.

Re: The sexy HD 5970...

I got Dirt 2 free with the card via Steam. Just after the game was release I got a chance to play. Its extremely playable at maxed out @ 2560x1600 res. FPS during gameplay is generally >50.
Not had any notable GFX lag while playing.

I guess I'm not seeing the any DX11 still being on Vista?

I've yet to try Dirt 2 (I had the same voucher with my 5850) but I presume it's only W7. I'll give it a run tonight and see what my rig throws up.

Re: The sexy HD 5970...

It works on Vista without issues... I didn't check the DX version post install but I'm guessing my Vista is still 10.
My Crysis stopped working post DIRT2 install tho, so I wonder if it did something funky with the DX...
I'll post at some point what the story is.

Re: The sexy HD 5970...

Glad to report the the new AvP multiplayer demo runs very nicely on the 5970. I'm guessing the full single player game will have more detail and will be DX11, however it's a very positive sign!

Can't wait to play the single player!
