I'm pretty excited about Company of Heroes 2, I've played the heck out of its predecessor.
The NVidia GeForce Experience (NGE) software is supposed to reconfigure your games for optimal settings based on your hardware. Supposedly.
NGE, not that I trust it, tells me that on my 2560x1600 display, I should run Image Quality at Minimum, Physics Off, Snow Detail Low, and Texture Detail Low. Admittedly, when I run the Performance Test in CoH2 with really high settings, I do get a few slow frames, but it's not horrendous and I actually find it quite playable. Sure, different people have different thresholds for what constitutes playable frames/second, but I think I tend to be on the high side, wanting 40+ fps.
In general, do people find that NGE tends to set the settings extremely conservatively? Is this just a ploy to convince me my "GeForce Experience" would be better with a faster card? I have to admit, seeing these nerfed down recommended settings does hurt my feelings and make me feel bad about myself.
CoH2 is the only game I have that really taxes my system right now (see signature below), so I can't really compare other NGE settings in other games.
