View Full Version : Are NFS Shift performance problems with ATi hardware solved?

06-15-2010, 02:06 PM
The demo ran like crap and according to posts in their forums ATi users were the only ones getting poor performance and since there's a sale tomorrow I'd like to know if the problems still persists or not.

Q9550/ATi 4870 1GB.

I have the Sapphire 4870 1gb. When Shift came out, it ran like ♥♥♥♥ on my system. I played for a while, but I ended up giving up because it was like a slide show sometimes. I came back to it after a couple of months, and it worked like butter. You should be fine if you decide to pick it up. It's worth it.;)

Thanks for the heads up!

I don't know why I thought that today was Wednesday :S

It was fixed in the first game patch, everything runs nice and smooth on my 4850. And yes, the performance was terrible for me before that certain patch.
