I just popped my 2nd 980gtx in today, surprisingly i went from 35 FPS at 100% GPU usage to 60 FPS at 80% usage x 2. My video memory was 94% used of 4GB.

I still see evidence of texture downgrades on mid-far away objects, I suspect that if I had 6GB VRAM this game engine would take advantage of it.

All I can say is good luck to most of you.... ATI users have 0 shot without major texture downgrades and most of the elite nvidia users will be at 30FPS with no downgrades.

I am a system builder as a hobby, my other 1x 780GTX rig can play at a solid 30FPS @ 1080p, not too bad.

edit: after further play, I get spikes to 100% usage and my CPU usage has increased dramatically with the increase to 60 FPS, 70-80% CPU usage. Still maintaining 58-60 FPS :)
