    nope not at all, didn´t notice any decrease in performance.

    John yes pretty lucky, however it could run better. But performance is surpassing my 360 and looks better. I did get used to framerate dips in the 360 version. Maybe that is why I am not too sensitive if it dips down to 25 fps sometimes :)

    I can only imagine how it would run if I had a quad :)

    Oh by the way try this set Frames to Render Ahead to 8. This did some wonders to my desktop computer.

    Also of course install Nhancer. I always use this.

    Magnus could I see a screenshot or two from your laptop?
    So trying to figure out how P9500 at 2.53GHz + 9800M GTS runs it...

    Hmm remove /high from the commandline.txt if it´s there and remove nomemrestrict too and see if that solves the problems.

    Yeah I will take some screens of my laptop SemiGamer. Though I don´t play the game on my laptop but on my desktop instead.

    Yeah have you turned off CPU throttling in the Bios John? I read that GTA IV has some problems with this and can put the CPU in throttling thereby lowering FPS. This would be fixed in the patch apparently.

    dont have that in the bios, but made sure it wasn't throttling under windows. getting pretty good frame rates under 1280x1024. and th lower you go..the less sli works. it starts kicking in around 1280x1024. and as you go high, so does the sli rate, but you still lose frames though....

    edit: also... game is taking up about 1.6 gigs of total memory at the moment..wow!

    Thanks magnus.
    Yeah I know, I'm just trying to get some feel of how the game would play on C2D 2.53GHz + 9800M GTS since I can't really find much with that setup.
