    Full gpu usage means diddly to me these days. Make sure to atleast install CAP2. I also heard disablling AA really improves fps (for now!). Hopefully the performance drivers don't fall short. Seems like a really good game from the videos...just takes the fun aspects of GTA and makes a game about it.

    I initially thought it came from the news of SR3's home page but no such information was made about a specific AMD problem. Then later realized that it didn't come from SR3 main website.

    There are people with nvida cards having problems with the game:
    http://saintsrow.com/community/go/thread/view/136781/28692649/keeps_crashing

    So it's not cut and dry just because some think that one manuf. of card(s) get good frame rates.

    Actually people with nvidia cards are having problems in the game. Check out the link I posted earlier as one example. Or:
    http://saintsrow.com/community/go/thread/view/136781/28700849/DX10__11_Version_not_working (can't get DX10 working)
    Etc.

    So the game isn't as rosy for one pc setup as some would like you to believe ;).

    well sure you can find some people with nvidia cards having issues, but I have an nvidia card too in my htpc/desktop and it works 100% fine. The difference is that there is a problem with the driver and its confirmed, low fps thats not user error or some other pc problem.

    If you can see that it doesn't matter what video card you have people can have problems with the game. Then the issues really isn't specific to just one manufacture. ;)

    You dont want to admit that there is an issue with sr3 and AMD graphic card.

    thats not what im getting at, people can have issues with any program with any configuration if their pc isnt stable. In this case the amd drivers are causing an issue.

    The same can be asked of you about the problems with nvidia cards. Apparently you've ignored them.

    But it is were I'm getting at. That's not relevant when you look at the whole picture. Which contradicts your post entirely.

    lol!!!!
    you still dont want to admit the specific problem with AMD and this game.

    ********* writes: "Saints Row: The Third has just been released and a lot of PC gamers are experiencing low performance with AMD’s hardware. Before you jump to early conclusions, no. This is not a hasty port like Saints Row 2. This time around, the problem is with AMD’s drivers as Nvidia’s users are enjoying the game in its full glory as we speak."

    LOL, the same old quote (already responded to in a previous post). But yeah, lets all ignore their own forums where nvidia users are having problems ;).

    I'm playing SR3rd at over 100-140FPS at full settings at 1920x1080, I dunno what problems all of you guys are supposedly having

    Also I love how its all posters under 20 posts and Nvidia card owners stiring up crap here

    P.S. My friend has a Phenom II 955 and a Radeon 5870 and he's getting over 60FPS at all times with max settings

    I get the feeling the trolls are out in full force here in this thread

    not on the nvidia side^^^^. this is in response to the person claiming just as many problems with nvidia and amd in this game. please do not tell me I am wrong without proving it
