    I've set adaptive vsync to 1/2 refresh rate (120hz monitor) for Anno 2070 but Fraps is reporting 70fps+ and I'm getting major screen tearing. All other games (MP3, Skyrim, BF3, FIFA 12, Civ 5) work perfect with this setting.

    Haven't played the game with previous drivers so is this a common problem with the game?

    Yes I can confirm this too. Its mostly in Dx10 part of the benchmark, DX9 has it a little but nothing serious compared to dx10.

    *I tested benchmark Long run and saw the difference..


    It looks like inefficient streaming driver+game code (by certain parts, always same sections), although i remember it use to stutter less with older 2xx.xx drivers.


    And speaking of DX10 vs Dx9 in dx9 it renders taller grass too, looks like a game bug to speed things up in dx10 :grin:

    Definatly A Master!
    275.33 (& maybe 296.10) were Fine, & the 280 serie was apocliptic...(for most of us).
    Im still using 296.10 (after the trauma with the 280 i am trying to be carful).
    did try the 301.42 but i had 3 freez in 5 days.
    Im thinking of trying the 304.77 that some of the users are talking about but cant find any official links.

    True, the only problematic driver for me was 280.xx (p-states bug).

    Btw i think 304.77 (72) was a typo.., but there is 302.72 & 302.77.


    And i noticed something by Crysis2

    Its ok in singleplayer, no 40-45fps drops with gpu usage to 50%, its only in MP that's happening. :(

    Maybe Punkbuster conflict like with BF2BC in the past?

    Not, but WIN8 drivers are not the best pick to be used for WIN 7...if that's what you mean, because 95% of the users here are on win7, and they are talking about that OS.

    Multiplayer performance went to **** with the DX11 patch.
    Multiplayer gameplay balance went to **** with patch 1.8.

    Everything is fine with this drivers and also Batman AC the % gpu usage is a little bit higher than 301.42 drivers.

    I see, well dx9 ran a little better, but still not it.. Im at 1680x1050 resolution, so gpu power shouldn't be a issue.


    Hmm maybe it really is PunkBuster fault, kinda like by BFBC2., well I remember when nvidia implemented a workaround - hack and it got fixed.

    I hope they could do the same thing with Crysis2..
