-Intel C2D 6600 (2.6 Ghz/core)
-Nvidia 8600 GT DX10 w/256 imbedded ram
-2 gb ram

Simply put, my 360 put this to shame, performance wise. Sure, some of the textures and effects were a tad cleaner, but the drop in framerate ruined that fact. It only makes sense that the DX9 PC version outperforms the DX10, since the 360 is DX9-based.

I'm glad I bought LP for my 360 back in January; I'd have been pissed if I waited all this time for such a disappointment.

You're complaining about framerates on a LOW END DX10 card? You'd be MUCH better off with the DX9 demo with your configuration.

Hasn't Nvidia been having MAJOR driver performance problems with getting their 8xxx cards to play nicely with DX10?

...or did they finally resolve that issue?

till the GPU manufacturers optimize their drivers to work well with VISTA+DX10. That's why I wait. XP is way faster right now.

Did anyone catch what Cpu they had or how much ram was in the test system?
