I suspect that as dom3 graphics are not that fancy, the processor takes way more influence on the framerate than the graphics card, and as phenoms are not that fast, it might explain your low fps.

Phenoms aren't slow, look at this chart:

I have a Phenom 9950 quad core and that is faster than any Intel Core2 duo.

I think on this benchmark, you can mostly see that 4 cores have more power than 2, but AFAIK dom3 does not support multiple cores, so singlethread performance is what counts, and there core2 is faster than phenom.

Also ATIs drivers might be worse than Nvidias.

Well I wouldn't say it's low, but your numbers should be higher. As mentioned earlier I also recall NVidia having better OpenGL results.

Have you tried stopping some unnecessary services and process then testing again? (I've seen Anti-Virus cause wacky results)
Do you have another operating system on the same hardware you can test?
Do you have the most recent drivers installed for the graphics card?

Just checked. With "Too High", 30 fps with grass off, 2.7 - 4 fps with grass on. With Very High, 55 fps grass off, 30 fps grass on. Everything else runs at around 60 fps.

C2D E6600 2.4 GHz, ATI Radeon HD4870 512MB.

I see, thank you for the explanation. It doesn't really matter of course, I was just curious.

With grass on, I got ~50 frames on high, ~30 frames on very high, ~4.5-5 frames on too high.

With grass off, I got ~55 on high, ~55 on very high, ~40 on too high.

This setup:
Intel Core 2 Duo 3.16 (Running at 4.05)
4 Gig DDR2 1066 ram
32 gig Solid State Drive (Game and operating system lives here) + various other sata drives
Nvidia Geforce 9800GT (Latest driver installed via Windows 7 updates)
26 Inch Samsung LCD (Running the game at 1280x1024)
