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.

Some optimizations included in the driver apparently. Folks are reporting HUGE gains with it. Witcher 2 is supposed to be a beast to run at higher levels. I said I wasn't going to get it but I might just break down and buy it now... Nothing like a challenge to get it to run at close to max levels...

I dont usually play any multiplayer... but I think that is going to change with my new system, T |I and Steam! I usually just enjoy the story and scenes on the single player modes.

That is quite a huge change sounds like Nvidia updated for the better this time!

So I feel it should be mentioned that both Nvidia on this driver release and AMD on their last on showed very much the same... a huge increase in performance just from a driver update! KUDOS to both Nvidia and AMD!

Witcher 2 performance:

My benchmark is the intro fight with the dragon that for some reason I can't even get past on normal difficulty. (just got the game but seriously... tone it down for 3 minutes.. allow people to get used to the fighting style...)

Game Settings.. Everything enabled except uber particles and ssao. All options on HIGH.

System... 2630qm and 555 @ 750/1000.

The Witcher 2 is a very beautiful game so far. I am finally past the "intro" chapters and into chapter 1. The city is amazing, the colors, the effect. My settings are all high, LOD minimal, all items enabled minus SSAO, Uber, Vsync and AA.

I am over 30fps 90percent of the time. Rarely does it dip below. I fell horrible for the m11x folks as this game will bring your notebooks to their knees. It's pretty fun so far. Still getting used to the combat. I will try to put up some screenshots soon. Still very busy at work and home. My son is special needs and it takes up a lot of time.

BW, StevenX

FYI - I like others were experiencing decreasing performance in game and had no idea to the cause. It appears that my game (retail) has the horrible secureROM mess for validation. You have to replace your executable and paul.dll (the ones I used were from GOG) and it works. I am NOT suggesting you use CRACKS and if their is an issue of validity I will be happy to post pics of my limited ed box with soundtrack and game guide. What I am saying is that CDprojeKt better figure out how to fix this. After replacing the executables and DLL's im back put to around 36 fps in flotsam minus SSAO and AA/AF.

Thanks,

StevenX

Should I bother with the Beta Nvidia Drivers (275.27) for The Witcher 2?

Is there a noticeable difference from the latest stable drivers they have out now. (270.61)

Titan - I like the 275 drivers so far myself. Witcher 2 is running great for me. Dont know if it's any worse than 270.61 whql. Im going to stick with these I think for now.

COD Black Ops is a different experience than Mw2. I can get on a server, have decent games, not too much tube spam. The performance is worse but the game play is much better.

      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!

      Hey guys, I have an Alienware m14x R2, and I have been trying to get access to the BIOS so that I can change the boot options (Everything is locked, I am unsure if someone set a password of if these are locked by default).I've tried updating the BIOS, and resetting the CMOS and nothing has changed this. Would anyone know if there are other options I can explore? Thank you.
