I keep seeing references to PC Gamer early review of Crysis in forum posts. I'm glad to see that it scores so high (I've played demo 5 times thru and love it):) . But has anyone actually read this article. With a score of 98%, that they say something about performance improvements in the final build that are not present in the demo. It would give me hope to think the retail version would have addressed alot of the performance issues, and I might actually be able to play it with descent FPS on my quad cores / 8800GTX PC.

If it has in fact gone gold (I didn't bother checking), I would doubt there would be any optimizations at this point.

Those of us that were playing the beta told you that back then it was a new build. Many of you hoped that the demo would run faster. The demo came and run almost like the beta. The demo build is almost the final build (as it was made on the 12th of October (or somewhere there)). So the final version won't run better, hell it won't even support SLI out of the box. Crytek will release shortly a patch that will add SLI support for it. So don't expect miracles

We'll if that's the case and the game is pretty much the way it will be at release, that is disappointing, but I can live at playing this with 1280 x 800 resolution at 20 fps.

So be it.

I'll take the performane hit for now and pick it up on the 14th at EB...

This month is just nuts for the wallet,CRYSIS for 68$ in two weeks,HGL x2 112$,Jericho yesterday for 57 bucks,Strangehold a few weeks ago for 58$,370 bucks for a Lian Li PC777B yesterday.And come January,it'll be Q9300 + Abit IP35 + eVGA 8800GT Ssc Edition 700/1750/2000,with the sexy blue pcb.With a wife who likes to game @ 16x10 this is getting $$$.

In an interview they stated they had fixed the missile launcher in the beta but due to getting the game out they couldn't fit it in the final build. That was over a week ago. They said it would come out in a patch so I wouldn't get your hopes up about a performance increase.

The problem most people are having is that they think they should be able to run all settings at very high while maintaining a fast frame rate on todays hardware.

Well I hate to tell you this but your asking to much of a 1yr old GPU. Guys if you use a little common sense with the settings and ini tweaks for DX9 you can get Crysis too look amazing while running great at the same time.


Settings are-
Vista 64 OS DX9 Mode+Ini Tweaks.
1680X1050 Application controlled AA and AF.
Textures-Very high using ini tweak
Water-Very high using ini tweak.
Sun shafts are turned on using ini tweaks and all other options are set to high.

what have you got the AA set to there?

None. AA takes far far to much of a perf hit with crysis, even just 2XAA.

The game fortunately looks better than most without any AA and is rather clean.

Its either a driver issue or we just need better GPU's. Probably both. LOL.



EDIT-Looks like you can run EDGE aa through the ini with less than 1fps hit. I will look into this.

Its better than no aa at all.

Didn't intend to make this sound like a self-pity party... just was hoping that maybe there was a little more performance on the horizon...

After more drivers and a couple of patches their probably will be. Be patient people.

For the time being just try and run it the way that I posted with my screens, you cannot tell me that it looks bad either.

I absolutely agree with Legend. People must stop being so vainglorious; we 8800GTX have been spoiled over the past year with not having to worry about maxing out the details and cranking up the resolution and FSAA, but we must realize that it's a year old GPU and we don't have that luxury anymore with such a foward scaled true nextgen title as Crysis. Afterall Crysis still looks great in DX9 all settings @ high with a couple of tweaks. Crysis is actually somewhat playable in 20-25 FPS, believe it or not, if you prioritize visual quality over a 30+ framerate. And people with less than a 8800GTX/GTS have to stop whining and accept they the medium settings as a good experience as well now they don't wanna dish up with the cash for a 8800 at least. My 2 cents :p

BTW this half-ranty speech was well meant and not pointed towards anyone specific or in this thread only, just a respons to a certain group of people having a certain consensus about the game :)

Very well said bro, and yes, Crysis is smoother at lower FPS than any other game I have ever played. Its kinda odd but its true.

30-40fps provides very smooth gameplay and as you can see by my screen shots I have the game looking and running great.
