Tomb Raider PC Is Seriously Bugged For All Nvidia Users

DSOGaming writes: "Tomb Raider has just been released – in pretty much every region – but it seems that Nvidia users won’t be able to enjoy Crystal Dynamics’ title as the final build is seriously bugged for all Nvidia users." (PC, Tomb Raider)

Tomb Raider was built with AMD features and gpu in mind

Your point, that does not mean it should be terrible on nvidia products.
As for the bugs, i do not have tomb raider or nvidia gpu so i have no clue how bad it is.

PC gaming has workarounds for every issue. NVIDIA will come up with new batch of drivers and problem solved.

I've had a few glitches but nothing major and I've been playing it nearly all day with a gtx570.

Her hair has disappeared a couple of times (with TressFX on) for a few seconds and it occasionally goes framey when not much is going on for half a second or so.

Worked well with Nvidia 3d Vision too (until I got a headache).

edit: I'm running it maxed settings but FXAA at 720p for reference (I was only getting 30fps at 1080p with 16x AA)

TressFX seems pretty demanding, if you turn that off I'm sure you'll get great FPS @ 1080.

Aside from an occasional frame drop in cutscenes/QTE, blackface Lara appearing in cutscenes and hair disappearing in cutscenes, I've not experienced any issues on my 560Ti. Might just be the 690. Whilst its max frame rate is twice as high as mine, its lowest framerate (on the benchmark) is four times lower than it is for me. My average sits comfortably at 30 Frames per Second at maximum settings.

Only glitches I've seen so far were in cutscenes, and it's a bit annoying that the scenes shot by the video camera are pre-rendered, as they've got a much lower quality graphically than any other moment in the game.

misleading title, im running a gtx480 and this game is nothing but stunning and I have had no graphical issues what so ever. I cant get over how good laras hair looks. running nice and smooth on ultra.

Nvidia has confirmed there are performance and stability issues for all cards. You may have not noticed them, but the official word is that the game is bugged

Works fine with that gimmicky hair thing off. PS I hate dsog. They are like a troll website for PC gaming.

Hmm... This is one of those frustrating issues, isn't it? I've owned both AMD and Nvidia GPU's, and the only people that get screwed by these optimizations are the consumers! It's too bad, really.
Currently, I have an AMD GPU, but still... Nvidia folks, I understand your frustration with this.

Working flawlessly on a GTX 680 for me.

Everything set to ultra tressfx and tesselation enabled on my 7970 overclocked. Getting 50+ fps.

It works fine with me I have a 560 ti. I do know issues are occuring, and seemingly more in the 600 series, particularly with SLI. I heard if you use the hitman Absolution profile it works the best until nvidia gets new drivers.

I had to tweak a bit, unfortunately this has always happened with PC releases, Far Cry 3 was that way for example.

I know a lot of the bugs occur with Exclusive Fullscreen (pointless), Tesselation (not pointless), High Precision (No one sees what it does), and TressFX (awesome).

The games really quite awesome, hopefully they fix this up soon, with possibly more optimized drivers so I can do the cool hair.
