    We are aware of major performance and stability issues with GeForce GPUs running Tomb Raider with maximum settings. Unfortunately, NVIDIA didn’t receive final code until this past weekend which substantially decreased stability, image quality and performance over a build we were previously provided. We are working closely with Crystal Dynamics to address and resolve all game issues as quickly as possible.
    In the meantime, we would like to apologize to GeForce users that are not able to have a great experience playing Tomb Raider, as they have come to expect with all of their favorite PC games.

    It's unfortunate that the competition between AMD and Nvidia results in these little annoyances though hopefully it can be resolved either with a driver update, game patch or both. :)

    I'm im no hurry to give them my money. I'll wait for them to fix up some stuff before I even attempt the game...

    The Hitman:Absolution SLI bits work great and the game will run flawlessly maxed-out on your setup.

    A weak excuse?, how?.

    They received new code over the weekend that was different to the code they had been given before - a code that was less stable, had worse image quality and less performance from the previous code.

    I'm not quite understanding how that translates to a weak excuse for the issues NVidia cards are having, in fact it sounds like a perfectly valid one to me.

    Yup, perfectly valid, it happens to us AMD users to, when Nvidia won't give them code till late on for their TWIMTBP games. :)

    yeah my point exactly.. Then i see all these silly NV fans comments nvidia had to little time, blame SquareEnix/Edios/AMD and the code too,.. excuse upon excuse:D


    Idc for any excuses I just want a working game TWIMTBP or AMD evolved. Funny thing was a TWIMTBP game had more issues then AMD evolved and response from nvidia? it starts blaming developers, even though its their TWIMTBP - COD5 WAW and Avatar to name a few. Or what's worse then they go AMD has this issue too so its not nvidia fault.. Ok, I mean why promote TWIMTBP then?


    Anyway I hope Nvidia gets their **** together in the future, let this Tombraider issue be a lesson to them. :grad:

    oh right, when amd users were going on about nvidia paying off developers to cripple performance. yeah i remember that

    AMD paid off Crystyal Dynamics to cripple performance for Nvidia users.

    There. I said it. :nerd:

    ...you sir make absolutely no sense

    You're basically blaming nvidia for bad performance in the same way that a some kid gets blamed for a bad grade on a piece of paper when in reality that kid did great on the piece of paper, if it werent for the fact that the instructor changed the parameters/etc. of the paper at the last minute, making most work to done on the paper to become invalid, or partially invalid

    how exactly should nvidia get their **** together when the build they had worked just fine and therefore means they had their **** together?

    Some people have no logic i see.... I see no "lesson" to be learned here aside from "be weary of developers, they may screw the pooch in the end with our work"

    IDK man. I only played it for 10 mins then went back to what I was playing beforehand. I only tested for functionality and what I did test, worked fine. I have a few games to finish before I can even start on this one.

    I made enough sense to rage some nv fans, you included. :p


    btw your comparison is flawed too, remember the days when a game just played, now we need driver optimizations for this game, game optimizations for that gpu.. And what would happen if you had a AMD gpu and it played terrible in certain game, who would you blame then? AMD or say nah its nvidia fault they had better game code xD


    Imo nvidia had enough time to do their homework (slightly changed code or not), but they didnt want to prioritize it, they rather optimize it for Crysis3, Hawken or SniperElite2 :eyes:


    Edit:
    And dont get me wrong it plays fine, just not with TressFX ON. With ON it has some abnormal latency issues by direct compute and it starts leaking memory.

    If memory serves me correctly, nvidia's game day support is superior to their competition, so they failed in this case to live up to expectations.

    I played "new" TR no problems during ~1 hour with all max settings except post disabled at 1280x720@FXAA-16xAF running Win 7 x64 SP1 with 313.96beta (HQ), sorry. And I got 45-60 fps but I dropped to 15-20 fps due to close to hair TressFX. :D But GF 600-series have problems.
