The GPU usage for crossfire in this game a major piss off! I've tried 13.2 Beta 6 & 7, and 13.3 Beta 3 drivers. No change at all. In CF each card only runs at about 70% no matter what, even on the lowest settings. In some areas I see 90% usage but it's rare. Anyhow, totally maxed out with FXAA I get 40+ fps and it doesn't feel smooth. If I lower the settings until I get 60+ fps it gets better. Now the stupid part is, with CF disable so only one 7970 is running, settings again maxed out with FXAA, I get 25fps and it DOES feels smooth and playable. Searching around the internet I see everyone has the same problem. Not good for a game that's a part of AMD's "Gaming Evolved" program.

Well I kinda take back what I said lol. I tried SMAA MGPUx2 and it seems smoother. GPU usage is going between 85% to 95% percent. Still could be better but I'll take it.

This is probably the most enjoyable cinematic gaming I've ever seen. So far only one minor QTE, but mostly it feels like a tech demo for cryengine, which is fine with me, just seems like they could have put in alot more enemies along the way.

Not quite done it yet, but thoroughly enjoying it.

edit: well that was kinda of short, but still alot of fun by my standards. If you haven't got it, find someone selling an AMD reloaded bundle like I did, even better with the Bioshock Infinite key as well.
