IT WORKS! wow i'm surprised. On my HD7970. I'll have to 100% test it since im remoting in to my home machine from work but fraps shows the frame rate as the same as i normally have it (30-45) on Ultra and the hair on the Griffin head is flowing in the breeze. Good stuff. ;D

Tessellation at 4x i'll keep going till i hit a sweet spot.

I'm confused how can this method work for Nvidia users in terms of getting what I assume is a watered down/simpler version of hairworks but with a smaller performance hit?

I'm on a 770 and definitly seeing very strange 'optimistation'.

Everything set to medium, no AA, no hairworks, 1080p... average fps of 45fps.

Turn everything on ultra, with AA and hairworks, 1080p.... average fps 40-45.

Turn on Shadowplay, fps actually goes UP to 50fps average.

I hear if you turn foilage way down it's gives you a massive performance boost.

Got fed up turning settings so turned off my fps counter and played happily every since. Awesome game.

I don't proof read or spell check on sites like these. If you're going to be a grammar-nazi at least do it right, you missed:

- definitely
- optimisation
- every thing (emphasis should be on thing)
- UP
- I hear (I've read) that
- it's (should just be it)
- Got (should be I became fed up with)
- turning (should be tuning) followed by comma after settings
- so turned (so I turned)

No disrespect but you missed a lot of mistakes, and there's plenty more not listed in my informal key strokes ;P
