    Ok, so I just today received my ATI 7970, the world's first 28nm graphics card. I've compiled some data, and I have to say, beefcake and I were both right. I don't have the processor to fully explore this card, but it was a huuuuge step up from my old 460s. In a few months I can update once I've got an ivybridge processor. Also the drivers are somewhat questionable at this early stage.

    This is a loading screen from GTAIV, boss isn't it? The resolution is 3040X1080 and takes 2 monitors to achieve.

    I was able to get playable (more than 25 fps) fpses out of all the games I have tried (Batman Arkham city, The Witcher 2, Shogun 2 Total War, GTAIV) at that resolution or higher, which is promising and very remarkable (considering I couldn't play some of those games at max settings at all before), but my cpu raises up to something like 86% when processing, and I think as beefcake's hunch might have indicated, that is where the bottleneck is.

    More Colossal rez, this time in game.

    For all of my tests, I cranked all of the settings to max, including ones I usually don't care for (v-sync, anti-aliasing, filtering) and I could probably get more FPS by disabling them.

    getting decent frames (averages 45+), but with some drops to 20 when changing areas, once assets have loaded frame rate is smooth.

    Probably motionblur, if its in the bottom pic. It looks gorgeous and you know it, also keep in mind there is qualityl oss because steam compresses screenshots.
