Our lowest settings looks worse than Crytek's - how will your's stack up?

The much anticipated Crysis single-player demo was released for download Friday night, and naturally we had to have a go at it. Most of us (PC editor excluded) lack any significant horsepower under our desks, so it's DX9 and low settings or nothing. To our delight, our mediocre systems are at least capable of rendering Crysis' intricate jungle setting well enough to play.

Well I was VERY frustrated with the DX10 on Crysis, I can ran the game on DX9 with everything on max but as soon as I switch to DX10 my frames go to hell, and it seems even people with 8800 Ultras seem to suffer from criminal loss of frames on DX10

So what the hell Crytek and NVIDIA!! WHAT THE HELL!

its about VISTA .. VISTA is a piece of crap right now..may be they will fix it with Service packs or Firmware updates (I dont think so)...

just visit and search for Memory usage with same system on both XP and VISTA..

VISTA use 2 times more memory in some situations and give us less performance.. BS

ive got...

Q6600 oced @ 2.78ghz
2 gig OCZ 800mhz
8800GTX oced

and still i couldnt play this game at very high even at some 'low' res's (by low i mean 1650x1080/1380x720)

well lets just say i was expecting much more, hopefully the actual game is slightly better optimuzed.
still, order 2 of the new 8800GT to try in SLI, hopfully fairs better than the GTX.

try forceware version 163.69

you actually need Beta frivers 169.01 to make Crysis run properly (aka no slide show)

Mine looks like Far Cry, but still runs it good so I'm happy

I did then installed the Crysis demo and well it had to set all on LOW :-( the visuals were extremely bad! Hell I could run FarCry on much better settings and visuals than Crysis!!
