I couldn't help but notice - are you really running DDR2 in your system? Shocked

I'm running 6GB DDR2 800 in mine. i7s and DDR3 isn't really necessary for a game like EVE.

Grats on the score, better than mine (although mine would probably have been better if I had rebooted during the last 6 weeks and hadn't been running two instances of eve and an one instance of SimCity at the same time, but who cares...

The eve client attempts to be compatible with ten year old shoddy laptops. It's necessary because it's an international game and subscriber numbers rely on people playing on the laptop you sold 8 years ago in Bangladesh.

If you ask me, yes - beef eve up in any way you can - I can run whatever you throw at me and if I can't run three instances perfectly smoothly, I have enough money to build a system that will.

The qurestion is if this will do eves subs any good, which I doubt. In eve, I don't really mind the graphics anymore, I just look the spreadsheets and I don't need fancy graphics for those.

Graphics-wise, they lost me when they 'updated' Amarr ships, primarily the Curse, but then, that doesn't have anything to do with performance - just funamental aesthetics.

do you expect nvidia to do something to support a Dx9 game better in the future? Shocked

nVidia is cool and all, but doesn't have anything like the power of 7990. Imho it should not partnet with nVidia, but instead optimize for at least both (amd and nVidia) or choose the best directly, AMD.

He is right you know



CCP need to crank up the graphics updates to 11 and flush out the scrubs running eve on dinosaur PC's dragging us all down.

Your about as much use as a condom dispenser in the Vatican.

I was only mentioning to the missus a couple of days ago that I needed an upgrade, not bad for a 2yr old rig though.

Edit: Updated the drivers so they're approved now

For reference http://www.3dmark.com/3dm/614084

Everything stock Roll

@Chal82 first time round my AMD drivers were reported as not approved, updating to latest version solved the problem but did shave a fraction of a % off some the benchmarks.

Updating mine seems to have improved the score overall, I was looking at the SLI titan scores, £1800 worth of graphics card is insane.

The problem is that those scrubs make up ~15% of the player base - which is admittedly much, much better than the ~50% it was at last year.

Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.

Sometimes when I post, I look at my sig and wish that I'd follow my own god damned advice.

It won't ahppen ebcause there is no point to do so. The game is too small to matter to them as long as there are no crippling bugs preventing play altogether.
