Hi,

So I've just upgraded my HD5870 to a 7870 and have noticed little to no performance gains in Hawken. 

Are there plans for a driver update to help this game run properly? I have an old i7 @ 3.5GHz, 9GB ram and so far am very impressed with the new card in other games, it just doesn't seem to like Hawken...

Cheers

So, I can play any Unreal Engine 3 game at max settings and enjoy smooth FPS but I can't even play Hawken at medium or low with decent fps.

And no one can be bothered to even respond? Even after I've spent hundreds on this graphics card?

What do you expect bud? This is a user to user gaming forum...if nobody has had the same issue as you then there is not much you can expect in terms of responses. Report your issue to AMD. If enough people submit issue reports about hawkin..and they are reproducible..then there is a good chance it will be addressed.

I rock out in hawken just fine maxed out. My 7970M rocks this game. (basically a slighly underclocked 7870 desktop). You may need to check on a fresh driver install.
