MMGN.com compiles some footage of Crysis 2 using Direct X 9, and then with Direct X 11 and the new hi-res textures.
it is nice to bad these dx11 games require 64bit os to run them at max but stil nice to see dx11 being used finnaly.
It definitely makes a difference
For all the slack they've gotten, CryTek was really able to push DirectX 9 to its limits. It kind of makes me wonder how much potential is left in other builds of DirectX and why we generally don't see this level of detail/performance.
Valve has done a good job on that front as well.
Huh, a little late to the party now. The real question is did Crysis 2 MP ever take off? Or did it crash and burn in a month flat. Seemed kind of like a mediocre MP experience to me when I played it.
The quality of the MP no longer determines its popularity. Killzone 2 and Killzone 3 were never very popular, but a lot of KZ gamers here will attest to its quality. MW2 and BLOPS have many a problem but draw in many. Crysis 2's MP was a good first attempt, and even if it was great, I don't think it would succeed in attracting too many players.
Im happy with my ps3 version...
Don't lie the console versions suck
this comparison kinda sucks it's so hectic. Believe me play the game on your own screen maxed out and it's gorgeous. Crytek did a great job implementing this. It cost me maybe 10-20FPS for what feels like a whole new game.
I guess I can't tell on a 720p Youtube video because they looked very similar to me.
The DX11 and hi res patch actually gave my PC a workout. With everything on ultra Crysis 2 only runs at around 30fps in 1080p. Before that, my comp ran ultra with blazing speed. The lost in performance is noticeable but the visuals are worth it.
Yes, I had to drop the motion blur to medium or it begins to chug whenever I do a turn. P.S. what are you running? Phenom II X4 840 @3.6Ghz, Geforce GTX 460 OC 840/1680/2020 Mhz. I had to drop down to 1600x900
i5 2500k, 570 GTX. Both at stock speed. This system is so fast I never felt the urge to OC but with the new patches I'm starting to consider it...or maybe not. 30ish fps is fine.
Only thing better than pc is a new pc!
i've been playing it, it looks REALLY good. there's definitely some noticeable spots here and there where they didn't bother to touch up the shaders, but the stuff they did upgrade is truly amazing. i'm surprised that i can actually run it on the absolute max settings, even though it only runs at about 20fps-- not comfortably playable, but at least i can crank it up every now and then and see what certain environments look like on max.
I hope my ATI 6950 can run this
If my GTX 460 can, you will not have an issue.
Had to turn 2 settings from ultra to extreme (objects and particles) to make sure i had enough vram available (95 - 98% usage with these settings), otherwise all ultra on 5870 1GB. So your 6950 should easy handle this assuming its 2GB :P 30 -50 FPS can't complain with these visuals.
Lol what a fucking fail, youtube compression and not so synchronized scenes By the way if somebody is thinking about picking this title for consoles MP, forget it, since the game came out crytek did not manage to fix lag, matchmaking and host selection at all, not gonna mention all the animation and map boundaries glitches
