PC Games Hardware magazine has finally done it. They got Crysis to run smooth on very high with a Triple SLI video card setup. The cards alone cost over $1800. I didn't even know they made power supplies that could output 1200W!
Crysis console port confirmed!
I did not read the article, but I have an 8800gts and I can play the game on very high. It just is a little choppy when the shooting starts. But that is more than likely because of my dual core CPU being outdated.
Overall, +2000$ PC is required, as expected.
I have the demo on my laptop, everything on low settings, and if i ever have the money i would spend 1800 dollars for crysis.... But thats if i had money.
if i had money i would buy an airplane, a mansion and a computer to run crysis on very high. What do you say?
Umm what i have to say about that, is that i would never in my life have that much money but i can always dream about it(thats what School is for)...
Is the game fun?
Yes the game is very fun, i have the demo though...
Look at reviews
I've lost alot of faith in reviews in the last 6 months or so. I'd like a less biased opinion, if that's even possible on the internet anymore.
I said bye to PC games quite a while back. I guess this is why! =]
But Crysis sure has damn nice graphics, I will have to agree with that.
This is only if you want to run the game at 1920x1200 at the absolute maxed out settings, which will be considered top-of-the-line graphics for around two years. Crysis actually runs quite well on mid-range hardware, such as the 7900GT.
you'd think that two gtx's would be able to do it... guess not.. haha
and another reason why this game might get ported to consoles and possibly not even run as well as the PC version, it'll possibly run at Medium mode.
wat load of bs i can play the game on xp with the very high hack at 1024*768 at arnd 35 fps with an 8800gts something must be seriously wrong with their pcs
35fps, thats not good. the game was made to run at 60fps, fail.
no disrespect but who games in 1024x768 anymore? better yet with a 320 or 640 GTS? I'm sure someone does but it seems like a conflict of interest to me. Good luck with that.
I still do and I have a pretty high end system. I like to run my games at 80+ fps at the very least. I personally would rather game with a lower res than having frame rates dip here and there. Plus 1024x768 is fine for me and looks great.
The game is meant to be run at 1920x1200 and beyond not 1024x768. I can get the game to run full blast (using the dx 10 tweak for xp) at 1920x1200 and though I only get about 12fps (x6800 @ 3.6 640meg gts)it looks amazing. The depth of field on your gun and the fire look photo realistic. When you grab guys be they throat you can see insane amounts of detail in their faces. It’s a cool game but I think Halo 3 and COD 4 are more enjoyable to play. It feels very farcry but I would still give it a 9+.
Kudos to everyone who spent that much for premium games. That's definetly the definition of hardcore.
It just means you have deep pockets.
This is why I'm a console gamer.
Couldn't agree with you more.
i'm telling u this is bs i get 35 fps with a single 8800gts which is just worth 250$ now at very high
ok they got 3 8800U's ok great, quad core extreme great, but then they do the dumbest thing im assuming they only have 7200rpm hard drive and they ONLY HAVE 2 GB of ram and thats just ddr2. you can get ddr3 ram for ur pc that supports 6 gb of ram and then should have used the 10000 rpm hard drive like honestly they probs could have reached it and not only that the cpu is MEANT TO BE OVERCLOCKED i dont think they did that, wat a pointless test.
I agree ,I use a 8800 gts too and it runs smoothly at max settings.
I used to run 2 in sli but it was overkill so I put 1 in my girl's pc.
yea this is stupid u dont need that much to get it playing on very high
On highest settings possible.....hey, where are you now?
They are running it on Very High at 1920x1200 with AA turned on. I have 3200 duckets invested in my pc and i get about 2 fps with aa turned on at that res yet i can run UT3 at 1920x1200 with everything all the way up and get nearly 60fps. As of yet NO ONE has got the game to run at full blast. Full blast would be very high for everything, 16x AA and a res of 1920x1200 or above.
It looks good but nothing that far off from what's out there like UT3 or COD4.
i wanna blame vista and the lack of ram and slow rpm hard drive for those attrociuos fps, like honesly 3 8800 ULTRA's this is total bs. unless they put the aliasing to the highest and v sync on at the resolution at the 1920*1200 resolution and they are running vista, and have only 2 gb of ram ( WHICH IS RETARDED HELL MY LABTOPS GOT MORE THAN 2). i think there is honestly some other issue here they should be getting alot higher frame rates than those............ wait a sec wen did vista begin to support SLI? was that in the service pack 1?
Play crysis and heat your house all in the same unit. Better have a hefty breaker for this thing. heh.
8800GTX and go SLI on that ass, I would need at least a 1000W power supply and a DEDICATED LINE TO MY BREAKER. now that is ridiculous.
That's strange, I'm running Crysis on very high with one 8800gt and with no lag what so ever.
first of all 35fps in this game is really good any1 who has played the game will agree motion blur makes things look smoother than they are much smoother in fact.....and at 1024*768 this game makes any other game look like crap even at very high res and yes i use a 8800gts 640mb which is very cheap.......now i know wats gonna happen now all the console ppl are gonna justify not upgrading their pcs and buying this game even tho this test is an epic fail..........and of course more hate for the pc as always.....
At what res and do you have AA turned on?
The res is at 1280x720 and AA is at 4x. The CPU is an Intel core 2 quad q6600 with 3gbs of ram. I'm pretty sure I can go higher to.
Ouch. I wonder how this would run with Quad Crossfire HD 3870s? I mean, ouch. I ran the COD 4 demo at 1920x1080 (no AA), with most settings turned on high, with my x1950 PRO 512 meg card on my old Pentium 4 3.4 Ghz Northwood (yes, that is an AGP card with a socket 478 CPU, single core, oh and 2 gigs of RAM), and the game ran fine. Only hicupped a few times. but it was always playable. Crysis sure is demanding.
