    Hi folks

    I now have my crossfire system running pretty fine, but I am wondering why the gpu usage lowers as the draw distance in games increase. For instance in Hitman Absolution. I haven't been able to find an answer to this, and maybe there's a simple explanation :) It makes sense that the frames drop in heavy scenes because it demands more of the gpu but not that the usage decreases?? Isn't that bad coding? Or CPU bottleneck? - though it doesn't seem to be the reason
