Some good stuff in there, "Crysis will feature out-of-the-box 32-bit, 64-bit, DirectX 9, DirectX 10, and multithreading support" :D

Not only that, the E3 videos were rather rigid, hitting 15-25 fps and locking up in areas. Even that same scene with the airship drop off locked up, all that stuff is now running smoothly.

What's interesting is that Yerli told us that if you have Windows Vista and an older DirectX 9 card, you should still see better performance with Windows Vista than Windows XP, even if the hardware remains unchanged. "DirectX 9 on Vista will run faster throughout due to the better device driver model...which is a great thing because just upgrading the operating system on the same rig, you get a better gaming experience,". He also states "the 64-bit version will bring a performance difference of up to 10 to 15 percent on each thread compared to the 32-bit version."

Does anyone know what benefits does 64 bit holds over 32 bit? I think I will wait till the direct x 10 cards are out before playing this game. Dont want to ruin the experience.

Well graphics reqs will be high but to play at the highest settings I would have to buy a new OS and a new card. Microsoft makes this whole DX10 crusty. But I guess we will all bite the bullet one day.

Are you able to download the high res version and re-upload it, jakup? :D

edit: damn thing, I just reinstalled WM10, and WMV videos are still super-dark... off to try different drivers I guess :(

edit2: just a quick venture off-topic here, but does anyone have the default video coor/brighteness etc settings for the 91.31 drivers? For some reason it had brightness and contrast really low and apparently thinks my monitor is A CRT :confused:

This game is gonna make systems weap, just look at the performance from Call of Juarez, not nearly as good of graphics, but very similar lighting and shadow techniques IMO

That third reply if u want depth of feild enable u will need on of the new nvidia or ati cards the full support the DX10 and the pixl and vertix Shader 4.0 some one told me that the nvidia card is GeForce 8800 is 48 pipe line with 4.0 PS.VS and the ati one i don't know wat's it's name but all in know that it is
64 pipe line and ultimate PS.VS that's mean's that this card gives all the shaders any game want and about the 3.0 PS.VS will run the game will in vista and with a lot of ram and powerfull CPU HT or DC

lol? is it normal to see crap like this on gamespot posts?

Anyway..looks good the game. And it looks better than before with it bieng more smooth..too bad i am not a subsciber :(.

Also the Vista talk about dx9 cards giving better gameplay and the 64 bit and dual core advantage...wish all games comes out like this..i am defeantly gonna grab a x2 later when Crysis comes out and move to Vista 64bit.

EDIT They cauld have told us what the specs on the computer that was running the new one on..i bet its like Xfire or SLI..maybe XFIRE...

Those are your Forceware drivers for sure, I had the exact same problem some time ago. First, try and make just any change to digital vibrance and brightness, just change all the settings a little. Helped for me just touching the settings, but otherwise just change the drivers ;)

It looks like Conroe does not perform very well with EMT64... In some benchmarks, the old Athlon 64 gains so much switching from legacy 386 code to x86-64 that it regains the lead.

You don't have to subscribe, just a free membership registration will do :)

Anyway for all the whiners out there:

Put this all together, and it makes sense that if you want the ultimate Crysis experience, you'll need hardware that's not even available today. However, Yerli explained that Crytek's philosophy is to make sure that existing systems aren't left far behind. "The rule of development of Crysis has been by the time we ship, the game will scale back two years," he said. So, when the game is released, you might want to examine your machine and figure out if any of the components are older than two years. If so, you'll probably want to upgrade them.

All this new technology is daunting, but it seems fitting, as well. Microsoft chose to show off Crysis during its E3 press conference for a reason. Crysis will help usher in a new wave of PC gaming with its DirectX 10 support, but it doesn't forget about today's gamers and their hardware. This promises to be a game that you will want to show off to your friends when it ships sometime this winter.

Is Crytek developing Call of Juarez? If not, its a horrible comparison. Some developers render graphics more efficiently than others.

Awesome, thanks for the links! I did notice some problems in the videos, the soudns are way off. When he tosses a grenade to show off the building phsyics, the grenade goes off, then 5-10 secs later the building falls apart. Also, the sweet part with the minigun, it's definately hitting 15-20 fps or lower right there, just seems odd with an FX 60 cpu and dual x1900xts's.

Ya at E3 and all the vids running they were using an FX-60 and 1900 Xfire rigs. But the game hasn't been optimized fully yet either, those vids show the game running much better then they were at E3. No more freezes, but you can definately see an average of 30 fps still and in some spots with heavy foliage with action it's certainly hitting 15fps. From the sounds of it, this game will be shipping late Q4.
