    Same for me with my HD2900XT =/
    Deleting that file worked but it was still noticeable and steadily went back to how it was.
    Might have a tinker around see what I can do, but it seems there are others out there with similar problems. I get better bench results in DX10 over 9, but it's got the stuttering.

    Overall though quite a good game. (I have the steel tin edition lol from play.com ) :D

    this game is outstanding. just picked it up and am very impressed. incredibly well optimized, very smooth with no signs of lag or jitters or slowdowns yet. the fire / flamethrower is great, the action fast paced, and i can run it DX10 at 1680X1050 with all settings maxed, no AA

    haven't tried any AA yet, buy i'm sure it can handle some. i really see no need for it too much, however. being that the game looks awesome and runs superbly as is i'm just gonna go with it. certainly not a game which needs tweaks or mods to run well

    must be a very nice game engine they provided for this one

    Are you serious??? FC2 runs way better than Warhead. Crytek can't code for crap and Warhead runs worse that Crysis!!!! As you can see by my system under "system specs" it is no slouch, however I find it ridiculous that using only "Gamer" settings that the train level averages frame rates in the single digits yet in FC2 in have everything cranked and get a average of 50fps. I also had to create a custom config file just to keep it from crashing everytime it went to autosave. :shadedshu

    Hell, Crysis runs better than Warhead. And I'm not the only person having these issues with Warhead, A quick trip to the forums will tell you that.

    Great game once I got it running on my rig..

    Playing it at 1920x1200 with everything maxed out and 4x AA and it runs like a champ on my AMD rig with a 9850 @3.0 and 3-3870 video cards in tri-fire...

    Ok, so now I've tried it. Avarage FPS in the benchmark is 14 something. It's 800*600 with everything turned off and everything on low.

    So far it's more 20+, but I guess it's because I've only played for like an hour. I haven't seen any of the big things. Still, me like.

    But it was really interesting to see that it went from totally unplayable (1.8 Ghz) to Somewhat Playable (2.1 Ghz). The bad thing is that my motherboard hates me. I can't get it any further, and my memory runs @ 100Mhz for some reason. *sigh*

    Ok well a bit of playing around and if you can live with 25-30 fps then your sorted. Read that if you enter gfx_maxfps 25 or gfx_maxfps 30 into console etc it stops the DX10 stutter. Still smooth and no jitter. But its only a temp solution and i believe you have to enter it everytime you run the game.

    Heard that ATI Tray Tools setting FLIP QUEUE SIZE to 1 works, but havent tried that as yet.

    Remember everyone's system is different from you. Anyway warhead not only has better graphics and physics its generally moar awesome. Thats my opinion anyway.

    i ran the game, changed the settings from 1680x1050 to 1920x1200, and dx9 to dx10. everything i else i left at VH, no AA.

    I reboot the game, the credits are extremely slow as is the menu. Move my mouse accross, it goes inch by inch. I installed the hotfix, same problem

    of course Crysis looks better. Crysis looks better then any video game. but the price you pay in performance is unnerving. i don't think its fair to compare the graphics of every new game to Crysis.

    FC2 looks like Crysis on medium, imo. a setting playable for many that still looks good. its going to be darker and lack color because its supposed to be Africa, not a lush, bright, tropical jungle

    two different games pretty much
    yeah doesn't bother me so much i figured out. gonna keep it wide
