As I mentioned in a previous post, I have been eagerly awaiting the arrival of my new system. Well, it arrived today and all I have to say is: "Sweet Jesus, this is how EVE Online REALLY looks?".
I even had a pretty decent system before this, but it would not run with EVE's highest graphics settings, especially since I run dual clients.
Now, I can run dual clients, both in EVE's max graphics settings, and everything is as smooth as butter. It is simply incredible to see levels of detail that I had never seen in EVE before. I wish I would have grabbed some better before/after shots - maybe I will, but for now, I sit in awe of what the EVE graphic designers and developers have achieved with this game - almost like EVE is a new game (well, sort of...).
Other than smoother & faster movement, crisper and more graphic detail, performance is absolutely sick and scanning is now something I realize must have consumed a ton of CPU, because scanning now is night and day better/faster compared to my old system.
Say hello to Dual GeForce GTX 295 w/Quad SLI and 64-bit, Intel Core i7 (yes, 8x cores running at 3.33GHz) and 12GB of 1600MHz DDR3 SDRAM - feel the power!
OK, enough with the hardware geek-out, back to regularly scheduled Sleeper programming...
