Max Payne + ATI 9700 = COOL




Hey - I never played Max Payne before. I downloaded the 1.05 demo (trying a lot of things lately).

I set up as:
All detail settings at the MAX
x16 ansiotropic filtering

Man - the game runs as smooth as silk. I must go buy it now. IT IS SO COOL, to be able to play a game smoothly with every bit of graphic goodness that the game engine and FSAA can provide.

am sure you should probably be able to run game higher..

but seriously it has not aged badly has dear ol max payne...

:) perhaps they can now make a patch to have moving light shadows/effects like in DX 2 to show off new features and stuff in the 9700 :)


OK, I picked it up for $25 while I was out buying NOLF2. :D

I'm curious to see how the 9700 will take the new Lithotech engine... Of course I assume my 1900+ processor is a bit of a stick in the mud.

I think most people are guessing a 3Ghz processor would be needed to fully unlock the 9700.

not really...

the athlon 2800 performs as well as or better than a 2.8ghz p4 stock therefore oc'd it will be something to reckon with... therefore the clock speed does not pose a problem really...

its a bandwidth issue more than anything else... agp port can't allow the 9700 to perform at its peak... maximum bandwidth is a bit fux0red :) so there is a little bottleneck right there... but let me know how NOLF2 plays...
