This patch offers big performance and speed increases across the board, and people with both multi-core as well as single core processors as well as ATI and nVidia video cards should now be getting much better framerates. In addition to these technical improvements, substantial AI improvements have been included in key areas like pathfinding, spotting, line of sight/line of fire, soldier responsiveness and behavior. Other tweaks and fixes have been applied to various game elements and players will also notice some improved terrain textures and better visual representation of elevations and distant objects.
