Excellent Performance Tweak I just found.

Alright, this may come as a surprise, but Crysis Warhead is set to use 256mb of Vram!!!!!! WTF was Crytek thinking!? I noticed this while I was doing performance checks and while my system ram usage and cpu usage was fine, I noticed my GPU being under utilized. So I went to tweakguides.com and looked through the various cvars trying to find anything noteworthy in regards to gpu's.


con_restricted=0
sys_budget_videomem = 512
r_TexturesStreaming=0



I made an autoexec.cfg with that and now I can run at 1440x900 and get as high as 60fps and never, ever go below 30fps on all gamer settings. Micro-stuttering (stuttering when turning) is virtually gone and the game is just running smooth as butter :D

Also, r_TexturesStreaming=0 removes that annoying texture streaming issue so all textures are displayed all the time and it makes the game look quite a bit better too boot since it's not rendering texture lod at various distances anymore. You'll notice the biggest difference in far away mountains, hills and other objects..

My specifications are in my sig. You needed to create an autoexec.cfg in notepad, enter those settings into the autoexec.cfg and then save it in your game directory.
