Crysis: Sensational Texture Pack in Development

Parallax occlusion mapping in perfection: Amazing screenshots from an upcoming new texture pack for Crysis (CryEngine 2). (Crysis, PC)

Well that's good I guess, cause I didn't notice much textures in the vids, that were released.
nophretete  +   1536d ago
What kind of graphic card do you need for this?
Need to buy a new one. Any ideas?
gold5225  +   1536d ago
Get the top of the Line GTX480. Haha well I plan on doing that in a month or so. I have the GTX260 right now and I want to see how much of an increase I get when I buy the 480. It is $500 bucks though but I should be good for 2 or 3 years. I hope
KingKiff  +   1536d ago
Why?
Only get one if you want to burn down your house while playing games lol.
dirthurts  +   1536d ago
No way
ATI 5870 is a better value.
Nearly as fast, much less power and heat.
Legosz  +   1536d ago
Agreed, sapphire 5870 is where it is at.
If you can not afford the over $200 price for a graphics card go for the 5750 or 5770 radeon. They are both below $200 and will run any game on max settings at a decent resolution.

@dirthurts: Dude i have the same graphic card as u, 5870...

decided not to switch to nvidia although ive been a nvidia loyalist
karan8624  +   1536d ago
Actually
I've got an Radeon HD5850. Overclocked slightly (as high as I could get it without changing voltage) and it runs Crysis, everything on full with 2x antialaising fine. I usually turn off AA though, better performance. With no AA even a 5850 will be able to run this, no problem

Great
Wonderfull screenshots!
Pandamobile  +   1536d ago
Holy shit. Suddenly I don't regret buying a video card with nearly 2 GB of VRAM.
gold5225  +   1536d ago
What card do you have the GTX480?
Pandamobile  +   1536d ago
GTX 295.
gold5225  +   1536d ago
Ohh shit nice I envied that card for a long time. I will finally be picking up a GTX480 though by the end of the month. Summer job and high school don't make it easy to have nice things. It takes a while lol. I just upgraded my system about a month and a half ago. I just need a new video card and power supply.
OpenGL  +   1536d ago
It's really only a 1GB card though, as SLI does not add the memory of both GPUs together. Everything is mirrored in the memory of both GPUs so it is effectively a 1GB video card.
KingKiff  +   1535d ago
Again
I just can't see the point in getting a 480 for the tiny bit of extra power you get while running so much hotter and chewing through so much more electricity.

Nvidia failed this gen of cards. IMO lol.
EvilBlackCat  +   1536d ago
Is freakin good to be a pc gamer
vulcanproject  +   1536d ago
GTX295 has 896mb of memory for games :-) Its SLI on a card. 2 x 896mb. Whatever is loaded into one GPU's memory has to be loaded identically into the other's and mirrored exactly as they work on the same problem but supply alternate frames. Thus the maximum it technically actually has for use is 896mb

Hm. I didn't know that, thanks.

That's the point isn't it?

Top spec games on PC should have texture quality like that. But most don't.

Parallax-Occlusion-Mapping can be done on most systems and really adds to the depth of objects.
tdrules  +   1536d ago
poor quality releases help the mod community to grow, I'm all for it.
Bug ridden games like Oblivion and Fallout now have massive mod communities because of it
ChronoJoe  +   1535d ago
That's stupid.
peowpeow  +   1535d ago
Yet true
oguzsasi  +   1536d ago
Naahh
Nothing new in here!
scar-leg  +   1536d ago
I don't get how the textures are good but the guns look no better than that of MAG...
fireplace  +   1536d ago
Well... it looks like all stones in Germany are shiny.
Silber  +   1536d ago
LOL - yes we here in Germany are kind of stoneblind ;)
slyrunner  +   1536d ago
5870's
Are much better value than a 480, to me,its not worth the heat and power of the performance of the cards, on idle they reach to 59, thats hot for idle , im running 2 5870, and they are at 35 on idle
