    It baffles me how skyrim runs on nearly maxed out setting for me, but TDU2 looks like crap and gets 25+ fps only when overclocked... Just poor optimization i guess... really disappointing that.

    Well, from the sound of it, it just increases the RAM used by the skyrim, i got 4gb, but it runs fine then way i like it, so ill pass. Only use would be for high end rigs to run it completely maxed out with distances etc. as that probably would need more than 2gb RAM thus making it use pagefile/load everything off HDD which would be slow.

    When I try this directx9 .dll mod Skyrim stops using nvidia card and uses intel instead which results in ~5 fps. The game is still whitelisted in nvidia profile, but I guess it might be bugged profile issue. Can't remove it from nvidia control panel, can't find a way to remove it manually, any idea?

    edit: Just checked skyrim graphics options and now it shows Graphics Adapter: Nvidia Geforce 8800 GS instead of 335m. What the hell?

    When skyrim is up, GPU notification area shows nothings

    I have 8GB of DDR3

    I cannot seem to get the framerate not to dip to the low 20's in some outdoor areas.

    Indoors, I frequently get 60 FPS... even with AA/AF + FXAA

    I believe this game is poorly optimized for PC.
