Seems to follow the same quake console design that was subsequently used in half life and tons of other games.

Bring Benchmark - Mission 3, online coop

Settings - All High, All options enabled EXCEPT SSAO. This cuts your frames in half. Literally. Not worth it. What I did was create a custom autoexec.cfg to make sure all other options are enabled. AA and AF enabled. Looks great and smooth as silk.

@mxm - Let us know how the witcher 2 plays! I tried the first one and didn't like the control structure... but I try to clear all preconceptions when new games come out. I really liked two worlds 2, love oblivion but didn't care for Dragons Age 2.

Looking forward to hearing your review!

Best Wishes,

stevenx

Settings... See Screenshot but in a nutshell.. ALL HIGH, NO HBAO, NO AA/AF NO VSYNC. Dx10

Benchmark Type (Dynamic), logged while in 32 player MP match, Rush Isla Innocente.

System: I7-2630qm, 555mGT @ 750/1000 driver 170.61

bfbc2game20110515234623.jpg

2011-05-15 23:17:24 - BFBC2Game

Frames: 28046 - Time: 266902ms - Avg: 105.080 - Min: 44 - Max: 162

2011-05-15 23:22:29 - BFBC2Game

Frames: 82908 - Time: 987159ms - Avg: 83.986 - Min: 26 - Max: 155 <--- Notice extreme server lag killed the score but still very high.

A couple of quick tips to great performance out of BFBC2.

1. Check your PERFORMANCE tab of your TASKMGR. If your cpu goes above ZERO at idle then you need to optimize.

2. In your BFBC2 config file, make sure render frames ahead is set to ZERO.

3. Set DX level to 10 or 9.

4. For MP make sure network throttling is disabled.

5. Never enable HBAO... It kills performance and no real improvement.

Good Luck and Happy Pew Pewing.

Agreed on the HBAO setting, I see a minimal visual impact with it but a big performance delta. Not really worth enabling for the minor increase in eye candy.

What huge waste of time.. COD MW2.. can't even spawn without kids and tubes blowing up everywhere. F'that shit right now. un-installed in less than 30 seconds thanks to steam. For those worried about this crap game, 90fps average.

Good riddance to this pos.

I played some of the Witcher (1) and I liked the graphics and decided I'd deal with the abnormal control scheme.

I never liked COD series online play. Some swear by it though.

If you guys have any probs with installation just edit the nvdm.inf file and make sure the nvidia 555m GT is in the device list. It should work.

      Unboxing Features & Flexibility One Size Does Not Fit All Thoughts & Verdict  
       
      PC gamers are a picky bunch and are usually very meticulous about what type of equipment they purchase for their battlestations. One of the most important items for long term play and comfort is the gaming chair you will be sitting on for many hours. Comfort is a large factor and when choosing from what type of chair to get, the choices can be inundating. In particular, gamer chairs are a recent phenomenon that really took off with DX Racer and now there are a variety of choices to pick from on the market. In this article, we will be going over the Champion Series Gaming Chair by E-Win which offers a number of features that may be suited to even the most discerning gamer.
       
       
       
       
      Unboxing & Assembly
      Every gamer loves the joy of unboxing any new item they get for their setup and so do we. So to kick things off with this review, here is our quick and dirty unboxing video for those of you that love that sorta thing as much as we do.
       
       
      Assembly is pretty straightforward and if you've ever assembled any office chair in the past, it should easily be a 10-15 minute job at most. In fact, of all the recent office chairs I've built, this one is probably the easiest of them all because a lot of it was already preassembled in the box. Typically, when you buy an office chair, you have to attach the armrests to the seat or metal base but E-Win took care of that by having the arm rests and side cover already attached to the seat.
       
      However, it's worth mentioning that I did have to loosen the 8 arm rest screws (4 each) to get the metal base to attach to the seat since the armrests by default were in too far but that didn't take more than an extra minute or two to do.

       
      Features & Flexibility
      I think what separates gaming chairs like this from your typical office chair you can buy at places like Staples is the amount of flexibility it offers. For example, the armrests in this chair are marketed as "4D" because they allow full range 4D movement. The armrest can swivel left/right, up/down and front/back which is something I've never seen before I got this chair. One thing I really like about this chair is the handle for adjusting the backrest is just like the one you'd find in a typical car so it feels very natural. Whenever you want to kick back and take a nap or relax and watch a movie, this chairs backrest can adjust from 85 degrees to 155 degrees so it provides a huge range of movement you can choose from and also has a tilt locking mechanism to keep it where you want it.


       
      You can see an example of the aforementioned features in the following video:
       
      The Champion Series chair also has adjustable height of approximately 4 inches (15-18.9 inches) which for me was perfect because the last chair I used didn't sit high enough for me to keep my arms level with my desk. This resulted in pretty bad wrist cramps during long gaming sessions which fortunately this chair helped fix.
       
      Finally, it also has your typical tilt tension screw at the bottom of the chair which I honestly never change but I'm sure others do and appreciate the granular adjustments.

       
      One Size Does Not Fit All
      The E-Win Champion Series chair measures 21.3 in/54 cm wide at the base while the back rest is 20.5 in/52 cm. The hand rests are adjustable from 11.8 in to 14 in/30~36 cm and are 3.9 in/10 cm wide. The total length from the base to the top of the back rest measures 37.8 in/96 cm.

       
      The reason I mentioned all these measurements is because I have often heard gamers complain about their new gaming chair on Reddit and elsewhere and usually the fault isn't in the chair itself but rather the person didn't take into account the size of the chair relative to their own body. Fortunately, E-Win offers a variety of  gaming chairs to choose from that suit virtually any body type. In my case in particular, I am 6'2" and weigh approximately 215 lbs so when my contact at E-Win asked me for my height and weight, she specifically chose this chair that would suit my build and as a result, it fits like a glove.
       
      So How Is It?
      Well in a nutshell: It's fantastic and my primary gaming chair now, 'nuff said. It did take me a few days to break in as initially the seat felt a bit tight around the edges but after a few days of use, it broke in and now I've got it set just how I want for my long Apex Legends gaming sessions. One of the things I always complained about my previous mesh chair to my buddies on discord was that I couldn't quite adjust it high enough to keep my arms level with my desk. As a result, I would get really bad wrist cramps after an hour or two of gaming and my back would start aching. The Champion Series chair fortunately is a large chair and consequently can be adjusted high enough to even be above the level of my desk so I was able to adjust it to perfectly match my desks height and keep my arms level. I cannot stress how important this is for long term gaming as it can prevent repetitive strain injury and this chair fortunately helps with that.

       
      Overall I'm very pleased with this chair and I think you will be too, take it from one gamer to another. Just remember to pick the chair that fits your body size so you don't run into any problems. If you'd like to purchase this chair, please visit E-Win's website and use code "TechInferno" when checking out. As of the publishing of this article, E-Win has a 30% off black friday sale so get it while you can!
