Low FPS and other things...
I purchased the game yesterday evening and the installation was ok, but when I started to play(full details) it stops every few seconds for a little while. The framerate is around 50-70, just while this little stops it slows down to 5-10FSP. Even when I minimize the details to texturedetail 3 and environment detail 1 I got that problem. It seams like my PC has to load something, but I can't imaging that. Any ideas?
Windows Vista 32-Bit
Intel Core2Duo E6700
2x512MB Radeon X1950XTX Crossfire(don't know driver version)

Reason: Bad english:P
Maybe check to see if ATI has some new drivers out...otherwise, maybe drop some detail settings to see if your performance improves.
Same issue here. I have a brand new HD 3870 and in Vista I get hiccups in the framerate. Typically I get around 70fps on average, but I dip down to 20fps in certain areas. I could be staring at a wall in certain places and it happens, but I can be in a huge battle with vehicles and explosions everywhere and get 70fps. It's odd and doesn't make much sense.
I think it's a driver issue with ATI cards, there should be a new driver released soon. I'm on the 7.11 beta driver that came on a CD with my new card right now. Hopefully the 7.11 driver will have a fix when it is publicly released. Maybe they'll have a hotfix if not.
Ok. I tryd Catalyst 7.9 now. The driver from yesterday was 7.3. Well.. I can play in 1280x960 with full details now and get my 62FPS, but in some areas the problem is still there. Unfortunately I can't try Catalyst 7.10 yet. Maybe it would help more.
Hiccups was the word I searched yesterday
