    More balanced and more fun
    On the other hand big disappointment on the performances.
    Before the update with 1070 I could measure the ss to 1.2 and keep 90fps. Now from ss to 0.8 I switch to 45fps.
    So for my by a drastic bass performance.
    I hope to be the only one because if it does the same on smaller configurations it becomes unplayable.

    Plus équilibré et plus fun
    Par contre grosse déception sur les performances.
    Avant la mise a jours avec 1070 je pouvais mètre le ss à 1.2 et garder 90fps. Maintenant à partir de ss à 0.8 je passe à 45fps.
    Donc pour ma par une basse drastique des performances.
    J’espère être le seul car si ça fait pareil sur des plus petit configuration ça devient injouable.
