    Hard to say for sure. But there is something going on. I've also noticed low frame rates when changing resolution. For me, cleaning the cache seems to restore the lost performance. Once the cache is cleaned out the game loads faster and, there is no pausing when attempting to enter "load save point" section of the game. These aren't "game breakers" but having played this game a few times I've found some issues that needs to be addressed.

    I have seen such results a few times in a few different games..

    Not sure what causes it I haven't paid much attention.
    But its possible the card is clock switching, or the os is trying to take ram.. :confused:

    Anyone having lockup issues in Vista, game will run great for 10-15 minutes and then pop it will lock at the oddest times...

    Maybe SP1 will fix it?

    Annoying me really bad...

    My clock is stable, OCCT for 31 hours.

    No problem like that for me. Using Ultimate x64. I remember seeing a thread about the new Catalyst 8.10 beta RC2 and one user said he was no longer having lockups in Warhead.

    If you have problems with those drivers you should remember the official Cat 8.10 should be out next week.

    the improvement in fps is not even noticeable, the frozen maps are still a drag to play (possibly even worse compared to the first game) then again i dont have the best setup to play crysis warhead

    too short of a game, there some parts in the game that could be extended ie cargo, the lady just cuts you off and then the scene cuts

    Ya that 3850 is a bit slow, I remember playing it on my core 2 @ 3.2 with a 3850 overclocked and once I got to the frozen parts, it was reset everything to medium.. :ohwell:

    I found that removing as many processes as possible can help with running Crysis Warhead smoother. Going from 50 processes to 35 make a small difference for me. However, I know what each process does so I know what's needed and what's not needed.

    This was a very short game. Took me 4 hours to beat.

    When is Crysis Wars coming out?
    Oh, yeah, not this weekend but next it is free Crysis Wars weekend.

    Crysis Wars launched alongside Crysis Warhead. If you bought Warhead, you should have the game.

    Has anybody experienced serious lag at the start of frozen paradise? I'm averaging 40-45 fps in gamer mode, But starting frozen paradise it drops down 7-15 fps. Not even playable.

    Eh just beat it, had a saved game in the tower for like a week, then I decided to play again today.. Pfft lame short, lame ending, lame story...

    Hmm, lets take our engine and add a few hours of work and sell a new game...

    Sure crysis looks pretty, but the first one was so much better of a game in itself...

    Agreed. I'm glad Warhead wasnt the price of a regular retail game.. it's simply not worth $60.
