The first add-on for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, entitled Dawnguard is now available on PC via Steam. Thus we offer you some videos from the start of this new adventure until you have to choose your new faction. All the videos were captured with several installed mods, details and links after the click.
With these graphic mods I also use an ENB profile that I edited, based on a version from HD6. Here is a link to my ENB profile, you just have to extract it in the game's folder, the archive contains several performance and render options.
By default it needs a high graphic power (SSAO, SSIL and SkyLighting enabled), other variants needs les power.
Note that the colors are set to match my screen colorspace, so it can be a little bluish or yellowish on some screens.
Also, ENB is not compatible with tools showing information on screen like MSI Afterburner, it can causes the game not to start or crash upon start.
@GriftGFX: Gonna go eat lunch now. Thanks for the chat. It's always great to learn more about technology and its potential. I just wish there were any articles on the subject I could find. (45 minutes ago)

Then you start getting into proprietary software hell and potentially preventing other developers from writing innovative software solutions themselves. It's a WEIRD idea. (47 minutes ago)
and game engine graphics pipelines or even programming interfaces for their products. None of that is their role in the whole thing.. and it shouldn't be. (47 minutes ago)
@Sdarts: Nvidia and AMD already do help developers with optimization more than they should have to. Nvidia and AMD should be improving the hardware and driver end of the technology and not worrying (48 minutes ago)
Nvidia and AMD don't even provide the API for their graphics cards. That would be the next layer between the developer and the video card. DirectX. (48 minutes ago)
