    So i tried to replicate the test that Hilbert did in his review of Hitman Absolution and my FPS came out to be..... extremely low.

    I use the exact same IQ settings as the review (running 1920x1080) and my average FPS is only 33. Whats up with that? Anybody have any idea?

    He was able to get an average of 51 FPS with the Boost edition and the Gigabyte one that I have is practically a boost edition 900MHz instead of 925MHz.

    I am running a Phenom II x4 955 @ 3.2GHz and 12GB of 1333 ram.

    Side note * in the AMD Vision Engine Control Center under the "Graphics Overdrive" where it shows all the numbers for the vid card, the "Power" section shows 0% and always 0%, should I be concerned?

    The processor used in this review is a Core i7 965 clocked at 3750 MHz with 6Gb of 1600 running in triple channel. That is where your frames are going. There test system is faster than yours.

    You are not alone :D

    I have q6600 clocked now at 3.4Ghz
    HD7850 with core at 1200Mhz (equal to GTX580)

    1680x1080 average ~45FPS, but in lighted areas (tenis court f.e.) I get very annoying drops to 28-33 FPS, when this happens GPU AND CPU usage decreases to 50-60%, I mean WTF? Temps are fine.
    Why they even bother making powerful cards if games like this cant fully utilize mid-range card and Q6600... :D :D

    Yes I am running with the most recent patch.

    Is there an recommended remedy for my situation?
    Overclock my cpu?
    Switch out for faster ram?
    Or save up and go for a complete system overhaul?
    I am totally bumped out that my graphics card is not being fully utilize.
