"Crysis 3 PC requirements revealed"
I still can't run Crysis w/ HD add-on with my 560TI :(

porkChop2028d ago

Strange. Runs perfectly fine with my 560Ti on max. Could be your CPU.

tachy0n2028d ago

dude, my system from 2008 still maxxes out all games...

Q6600 @ 3GHz


my PC is ready to PoWN Crysis 3.

tachy0n2028d ago

is people retarded??

the q6600 is a quad cpu

the gtx460 a DX11 GPU

8gb of ram is more than enough for games.

if you think I'm wrong go tell that to logan at razethew0rld or linus from ncix. they will laugh at you.

My guess is that people disagree with your statement that your PC "maxxes out all games."

It's capable of playing all games, but maxing them to ideal (1080 @ 60) or playable (30fps) with everything maxxed is a bit farfetched?

And seeing how your PC is somewhere between Minimum and Recommended it's hard to believe your PC is maxing anything.

Runs nicely on my 8800GTX.....


Beastforlifenoob2028d ago

I can run it at high performace
wait I forget crysis is suckish

Norrison2026d ago

I run crysis on my 560ti maxed out at 60fps, try patching crysis and updating your drivers.
Here i'm hoping my 670ftw rig can handle this maxed out, I'm sure as hell I won't be able to run it at 120fps though.

hmm sounds okay, but can't really base much on given system requirements these days if code isn't optimized, but hopefully they built the pc version on the pc and then ported to consoles. my 680 sc / 2500k should do hi-ultra with low aa at 60 fps i suppose. but im waiting to get an 8 core haswell and add a second 680 or sell the 680 and get a 780 anyway, so im excited for this.

They said this was built with PC in mind, infact I believe this is the first game to require direct x11 as a minimum. And the visuals also prove it looks great.

porkChop2028d ago

There's actually been lots of games in the past couple years that require DX11.

- Hitman Absolution
- Sleeping Dogs
- Black Ops II
- Assassin's Creed III
- NFS: Most Wanted
- NFS: The Run
- Battlefield 3
- MoH: Warfighter
- Ghost Recon: Future Soldier

All are DX11 only games. They do somewhat support DX10 in that a DX10 card will only be able to turn on the DX11 graphical features that are compatible with DX10. But the games themselves are still DX11 only.

Anyways, I find it funny that under Recommended it says CPU: Quad core "GPU", and then in the examples it lists dual core CPU's instead of quads. Geez Crytek, is it really that hard to have someone proof read these things before you send them out?

pr0digyZA2028d ago

Those games require dx11 to run at max , but can still be played at very good graphics even on 10.
This will be the first game ever to require a dx11 card bare minimum, something which is great to see.This will be the first dx11 only game.

I'll be interested to see what kind of workout this will give my 670. Hopefully it won't chew it up completely with the VRAM some of those textures require.

AKS2028d ago

Toad Tech is gonna eat your VRAM alive! LOL.

I am sure you'll be fine if you adjust some settings, but if you were planning to go 100% max on every game I think the 2 GB mark is going to be a problem soon.

I've exceeded 2 GB in VRAM in both Crysis 2 and Max Payne 3 at just 1080p. Crysis 2 got up to around 2.1 to 2.2 GB with everything maxed out. I went with 4 GB GTX 670 cards and gave up a bit of power compared to the GTX 680 for that reason.

Looks fantastic.

Loving Farcry 3 atm.

I would love a Dinosaur game using this engine.

teedogg802028d ago (Edited 2028d ago )

I'm waiting for tomorrow to get my hands on it. Can't wait!
