I have noticed through testing that the current engine does not fully utilise Amd hardware and is currently only using about 40 - 50% on both Amd Fx 8350 8 core @ 4.0ghz and Amd 6970 @ 2gb.
The average frame rate is a very poor 30fps. Can testing and tweaking be carried out with Amd hardware and also consideration be given to crossfire?
Although Amd performance is presently poor, I have to congratulate BI on an excellent alpha platform! Don't forget your Amd followers please!
