Much Better FPS for me, Especially in VR, on VR Preset,

This + 2.2 I can actually Fly VR Missions on Nevada at the 45 FPS Mark Fluidly, with drops to 30 FPS over Vegas, Prior I was getting 25-30 in VR with everything at it's lowest possible setting.


Much Smoother than before.


And I havent even played with the driver settings yet or XFire.
