Is that general performance boost or while running SLI?

I edited my post with added details. Under the "Release Highlights", it sounds more general. But under the "New Features", it sounds like there is a boost for SLI'd cards

Might be a reason to start running SLI. ME3 has been running fine for me though with the 560GTX-TI card.

The bioware forums are funny on the ending topic. Some people just can't accept any other possibility other then that the ending is 'wrong'.

There are only two possibilities

1. Bioware messed up

2. Bioware messed up but didn't realize it

I think Bioware went with a very heavily asian/anime-style ending that the majority of American consumers don't enjoy or get. Self-sacrifice is a huge part of just asian culture in general for the greater good. You're not really taught that in America so it doesn't sit well or confuses people.
I really liked it overall.

No, we got that part of it.

It was the fact that none of the options mattered, that all of the endings were virtually the same and that it's complete and utter crap.

Godchild just randomly appears with 5% of the game left? No other discussion about it before hand? The Reapers come because of conflicts between synthetic and organic life and the ONLY solution is for the reapers to kill organics? There can never be peace despite the fact that I just spent the entire game making peace?

The ending is just completely confusing.

I think the Star/God Child is there as a manifestation of Shepards mind. Something is there in the Citadel, whether it be AI or VI, but whatever it is has no tangible form and Shepard can't comprehend it. Much like why the Quarians had the suits in the Legion VI mission, because Shepard doesn't know what a Quarian looks like his/her mind puts something in place so it can be comprehended.
Obviously the child is a key part of the game and how Shepard feels. So it makes sense, in my opinion, the Citadel would reflect that to Shepard so they can comprehend what is being brought forward.
It's either that or the Starchild represents a 'childishness' to the cyclical events that is the Reapers harvesting and then letting the lower civilizations flourish until it's harvest time again to control the Chaos. It kind of is a childish thought in a way to say that civilization is always going to rebel and fight so that's why they have to be destroyed.

I think there is a lot of vagueness for either DLC or for other Mass Effect games. They made an entire universe, this was really just one characters story when you get down to it. That's not mentioning the books, comics (which I need to get the new ones for to see the fall of Omega), and the potential movie that got signed.
That's like saying Star Wars episodes four through six had massive plot holes.

Just finished for the second time.... I vote that the ending sucks. I guess it doesnt really suck, just that they are all the same and very abrupt. Seeing Shepard (im assuming that was Shepard) start to breath at the end didnt help with the end to a trilogy either.

One more and Ill stop, if the story is important to you then I think it's kind of ****ty that Joker, your romance option and one of your team members just get stuck on some random planet at the end. It doesnt make sense to me seeing as Tali and Garrus were with me on Earth but somehow end up on the ship just to crash. I guess they could have all loaded back up and it just wasn't shown

Other than that the game was awesome. The multiplayer is pretty addictive too.

I loved walking into the cannon room and seeing Tali and Garrus making out while they tried to make an excuse for it. That and seeing Ashley on the floor drunk and Tali at the bar drunk as well. Some very humorous moments in the game.

Tali was my romance option so I didn't see that part. The drunk scenes were funny though. I was a little surprised to see more humor in this one
