UPDATE - the guys at Nvidia don't sleep (neither
- i just got a 5:40 AM (PT) email from them
We just verified with THG that our Beta 275.50 addressed their problems.
They say that 3D Vision in Crysis 2 is *fixed* with the latest betas http://www.nvidia.com/object/win7-winvi ... river.html
i am D/Ling them right now and will report back ASAP
Update: This is a very thorough performance review of Crysis 2 using multiple video cards and CPU platforms. So thorough, i won't repeat it. i basically found the same thing. The only thing i'd test that they didn't is the MSAA performance hit of each vendor. Crysis 2 with the latest 3 patches offers some great IQ testing possibilities. i might do an article on that later on. http://www.guru3d.com/article/crysis-2- ... nchmarks/1
added THG review who also found 3D Vision was broken in DX11: http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/cry ... ,2983.html
i'm still working on Alice. Then 3D Vision and the notebook makeover .. and i'll be back to reviewing HW as usual and Crysis 2 will be added to my regular benching suite with 4xAA enabled.
i finished Crysis 2 on Monday and am working on my review of it and Alice in 3D simultaneously. Probably a bad idea ,, but anyway. i have had issues with Crysis 2 rendering badly in 3D (DX11) so much so that i cannot focus after awhile.
i took some 3D screenshots with Alt+F1 and checked them with a slideshow in the Nvidia 3D Viewer. i found something really wrong that no other game does with 3D Vision. When you start Crysis 2, the left and right eye synch up. As you progress, the right eye gets "stuck" and you get a really old out of synch image that your brain attempts to ignore (or worse).
First, i am going to change GPUs and reinstall the latest drivers. Then i will retest it. If it continues, i will email Nvidia. They said they are getting good results with DX11 Crysis and the next set of drivers will rename the rating from "fair" to "excellent". It just could be my installation although another person reported issues with DX11 and 3D Vision on AnandTech forum.
For 2D Crysis 2, my settings are everything 'Ultra' except Motion Blur - low. In 3D, everything is ultra except Post Processing (high) and motion blur (disabled) .. it looks great for a few frames until it goes out of synch. i will explore
-<<< and yes, my eyes look just like this now
