When ever I play this game and I get to a remotely large battle ESPECIALLY around a large lab/structure my frame rate drops to around 23-35 frames. I am not even asking for a high frame rate. I understand that this game has a hell of a rendering job to do. But not even a solid 30 frames? I have... AMD Phenom II X4 965 (3.40 GHz) Radeon 7870 (2GB) 8 GB RAM I had similar performance in the beta back when I had two 5670's. I bought this new GPU hoping for a better PS2 experience. ALL my games improved drastically. For example on my old GPU I ran BF3 at 45 frames on low. Now I can run BF3 on max ultra settings at +60 frames. I realize BF3 is an entirely different game but it shocks me to see that PS2 seemed to have NO improvement what so ever. To make matter worse/more confusing (and its why I am making this post) is I have two friends with almost identical specs to me (if not slightly worse) and they don't get this problem. Their PS2 runs buttery smooth like my BF3 and other games. Why? It doesn't make sense. It would be one thing if the game ran like this for everyone with this hardware. edit: Also should note that increasing or decreasing my video settings does ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to my frame rate, it's just as good/bad regardless of the settings.
