    I have been looking for about 3 hours, and can't find any information besides people saying removing it from an XML file and that it gives you tremendous performance increases.

    Well here are the directions if you or anyone else would like..

    Oh fyi, I got about a 20fps boost and the game is playable at near max settings with my current system.

    You need to open an XML file called- renderer_settings.xml
    You can find it in your GR:AW install folder\data\settings\

    Open it up in Notepad and what you are looking for is-
    <variable name="post_effect_quality" value="*****"/>
    Where the **** are you need to enter "False"
    This will disable HDR rendering..
