Into the Black

Networks cancel '7th Heaven,' 'Arrested' has the sad, but not altogether unexpected news that Arrested Development has gotten the axe. The offbeat sitcom has received Emmies and critical acclaim, but never much in the way of ratings. I'll be sorry to see the misadventures of the Bluth family come to an end.

I don't mind them doing optimizations for particular games as long as it doesn't mean less time optimizing in general (= for smaller games).

In this case it seems there was an optimization via the Catalyst AI that is for the demo version of FEAR but goes in effect on the retail version where it does just the opposite - lowers performance. If you ran FEAR without Cat AI before you shouldn't notice any difference, otherwise you should see an improvement, and it's got nothing to do with DX level.
