    Tomb Raider

    Annoyed at the moment because I cannot play it at all because it keeps crashing.

    I noticed during the benchmark the scenery behind Lara was jittery, it would be smooth for about 2 seconds then stop for a fraction then continue so I turned everything to the low preset next time and the jitter was gone.



    So on subsequent runs I Started to enable everything one by one which didn't reproduce the jitter, that is until post process and BINGO the jitter was back.

    Continued to test other setting but it stayed smooth.

    Phenom II X4 955 @ 3.7GHz
    8GB RAMs
    AMD 6870

    These settings seem to give me best visuals vs performance staying above 60FPS

    You have to use TressFX, the hair looks so much better. I can never go back.

    I've read that tesselation is at fault. If you deactivate it, the crashes should get better. But in general, the game only seems to work somewhat stable on AMD cards.

    Maybe some of these tipps can help?

    I had tesselation disabled anyway to give more performance.

    Anyway there is a beta on Steam which reverts back to the previous version so I gave that a try and now it doesnt crash.

    Tried both 13.1 and 13.2.

    The previous beta version only worked for sa short while but it still eventually crashed.

    clean your drivers out and reinstall, make sure your not just installing over the old ones or still have intel/nvidia stuff

    did you try lower settings?
    I would try low/medium and see if you still see problems, if it helps then go back to high and underclock your card enough to play with solid fps.

    This is why I don't buy games anymore before the first patch arrives.

    I had very little problems running it. Check out my screeners on steam Keefy (Fawkes). Crystal Dynamics gave amd and nvidia their data for the game I believe 3 days before launch. If the game is unplayable for you wait for the driver update

    My specs are:

    i7 3930k
    8gig of ram
    gtx 670
    Six Years With PSU!~ Favourite Games of all Time~ Smash Bros, Spyro, GTA series and Elder Scrolls Series
    Add me on PSN FOXY007 OR Steam psn_foxy007
    My Hardware~ Sony Bravia 240hz 3D 40".. Ps3 Slim250gig and Sony Bravia Surround Sound 5.1
    PC- i7 3930k|gtx670|8g ram|2T HDD|Bluray disc drive

    I had to turn off Exclusive Fullscreen and Tessellation in order for the game to stop crashing, after that the game runs solidly at around ~30-70 FPS (depending on the area) on a res of 3840x720. 1920x1080 ran at a smooth ~90FPS though but having ultra widescreen helps a tonne in this game.

    Latest patch seems to have cured my crashing and the problem I had with post process enabled. Funally got to play longer than 10 minutes. Pretty good and tense so far along with a bit of mystery.
