The game will, by default, put out the maximum frame rate our rig is capable of, unless you enable VSync. If your hardware can't run at full tilt 24/7, you should limit your frame rate.

Personally, I hope the devs tweak this a bit. Running the system at full tilt all the time means that your video card and even CPU in some cases will thermally throttle, leaving no reserve for load bursts. It causes people to have to set their graphics settings lower than they would otherwise, just to have enough reserve for the rare cases where it's needed.
