    the same old trick, use Radeon Pro, and only use AFR mode, no profile needed.

    the fps is raised from 3x fps avg -> 8xfps avg on my 5870CF with 1920x1440 resolution and all max settings.

    The game is out on USA territories.

    mao5, AFR doesn't give you flickering textures sometimes? Which Catalyst driver are you using?

    it gives flickering textures that's true...and the game is a bit more bright...than with original cfx state...but a racing game with less fps isn't racing anymore...lol...it's not crysis 2 we can live with these flickers...

    Yeah, it's not annoying like in Crysis where the entire screen flickers like crazy.

    Funny thing is Shift 1 runs great with CFX, but Shift 1 profile makes performance worse, actually.

    it's failed optimization...i dont actually see differences on quality between shift 1 and shift 2, but they utilize the gpu's differently and need specified name on exe...on the other hand crysis 1 and crysis 2 utilize the gpus exactly the same as .exe...who knows...maybe EA, made hidden improvements on shift 2...lol:bang:

    Hey i just wanted to add that u shouldnt get ur hopes high about the graphics, they really look like crap tbh... its the same as the older NFS SHIFT what makes me laugh alot is how they claimed that forza and gt5 looked dull when this looks not only worse than gt5 but also worse than forza3 xD.

    still looks dark inside the car.. even darker using the helmet cam, damn games are plagued with this, even in TDU2 its impossible to drive using the cockpit cam because of the darkness..

    It doesn't seem to work for me, fps did go up. But my car is all black, and got black stripes in the sky.

    Crossfire is not working, forcing it causes lots of issues by now.

    Running fine here with Crossfire disabled. Framerates are not that good, but gameplay is very smooth.

    hey, thats normal, it happens on all other nfs games aswell, the thing that really made me mad was that they claimed that games like forza 3 and gt5 were "dull" and graphics were boring while the nfs shift 2 was gonna show them all how great graphics they can make and lock them at 30fps blablabla, and now look at it, it looks bad and plays bad...

    Well to fix the darkness in HUD and HELMET cam you have to disable crossfire with rad pro or what ever you use.

    then the darkness is gone but also are your frames.
    i cant believe this game runs worse than shift 1 does and graphically there both very simular as in nothing to get lock jaw over.

    also about the helmet cam, its good but the royalty runs out after playing the game for about 10 minutes then after that you have to change to the normal view otherwise you get disorientated, do you guys like racing on a boat lol
