Nvidia graphics chips face 'Crysis'

Even the mightiest graphics boards bow to Crysis. And Nvidia's newest dual-graphics board is no exception.

First some background. Crysis is a science fiction computer game developed by Germany-based Crytek and published by Electronic Arts. "Crysis is visually stunning, packed with intelligent, thrilling gameplay, and easily one of the greatest shooters ever made," according to GameSpot (which is owned by CNET Networks). For hardware reviewers, it's the ultimate gaming test of a graphics card.
Nvidia's GeForce 9800 GX2 contains two graphics chips

Though so far the reviews of Nvidia's GeForce 9800 GX2 are positive ("The GeForce 9800 GX2 is an absolute powerhouse, the fastest graphics card you can buy today"--The Tech Report), it stalled when faced with the gaming equivalent of Everest's north face, running Crysis at its highest settings.

The story is too old to be commented.

What's so great about a game barely anybody can afford a computer to play it on.

A basic computer can play it on medium... and thats great.... you don't need a supercomputer.

I just made a computer with 450 euros that can play crysis in medium/high.

Try to understand the difference between high settings and highest.
They are trying to run the game at like 2560X1600 16XAA and highest settings.

When it comes to the consoles it will be running at 720P max and somewhere around medium/high settings. Which is not bad at all.

Crysis went platinum according to EA meaning it sold a million copies. I guess PC gaming is more affordable than you think.

Now that I would be interested in trying.

and it handles crisis,OK,only on low settings though obviously,it freaks out a bit if i put more than 3 of the games visual settings at medium,so because of this i have worked out that there is more than a chance of high hopes for the ps3 version [if released], looking graphically sweet like the finest honey.[ps]its not as bad to play as they say people,look what im running it on,peace out.....

IF a game on PC runs at 30-60fps at 1280x1024 with everything turned to Max, I'm a happy gamer. Why does everything need to run at 2180x1920 to be considered a success.
