I really pity my dual 7600GTs. I have my doubts about them being able to run this game at any decent settings. :(

Well, since the GTXs are so cheap, I just might pick two of them up.

Or, what I'm more than likely to do, is just hold off for dual G80s. I get a feeling I'll need 'em to play CrySis at any sort of high IQ settings.

I think even my system is going to have problems playing this game in high quality decently without G80's. Even in the newest multi videos running on Quad, the game still had fps issues.

According to the article:

GI: Thereís been some confusion on someone who said that Crysis runs better on Windows XP and DX9 than Vista and DX10. Can you help clarify that?

Yerli: What I said was DX9 on Vista runs better than DX9 on XP. So if I have a gaming PC, and Iím comparing DX9 on XP versus DX9 on Vista, Vista runs better. The operating system is optimized for graphics drivers and optimized for gaming. Itís optimized for more controller functions Ė the game simply runs more smoothly. Just seeing Far Cry - it runs better. Thatís a hell of an achievement because for me thatís reason enough to change operating systems. Also thereís a gamer score support, rich game saves, many game aspects supported. You can literally save your game and see a screenshot of that save in Explorer. Thatís just fantastic.

So there may be a reason to adopt Vista more quickly from the gaming side of things. I wonder if this will hold true for other games and how much of a boost there really is.

With RC1 out i wonder how these crysis guys got hold of fully working drivers for Vista OS..while rest of the community is left in a hole..i wonder because it seems like Crysis has fully working drivers..it would seem a bit silly for nvidia or ati to not release them to the public -.-...RC1 is very nice...but the drivers are holding back :/..

Seriously, i can't believe that !

Buy maybe he did the tests in a quadcore cpu with 4GB and quad sli gfx cards.

They've tried both Quad SLI, ATI Crossfire with AMD FX 62 and it still dips to 15fps on both systems.

I doubt he was advertising for MS with that statement. As such, I believe he is telling the truth... sort of.

Sure, CrySis and FarCry might get a performance boost as their engines are related.

But what about other titles? Like HL2 and the Source Engine? Those are DX9 and I wonder what sort of boost they'll see- if any. Or even Oblivion, just how much of a performance boost would Oblivion see under Vista and DX9?

Still Far Cry doesn't run as i would like in my machine.

Prolly with G90 SLI or R700 xFire, it would run as good as Far Cry today.

This is what my dual g80's are going to be for :drooling:

Check out the 1up show via 1up.com, it has some new footage from the game.

that's with the current-gen GPUs, right? not the G80 or R600, at least I am hoping. the recent DX10 videos show a big improvement in framerate.

but there is no question, one would need SLI G80, maybe even Quad SLI G80 or CrossFire R600 to run the game at high framerates.


Crytek said that Crysis will continue to improve with technology 2 years away, so we'll probably be seeing benefits of newer and newer cards until NV60 (G100?) and R800 arrive. so that goes right through the time frame of G80/R600 refresh GPUs.

**** me in the japs eye and call me sandra. Thats nasty.

Screw eye bleeding graphics until I'm rich. Upgrading has burned a hole in my pocket too many times. I'm going cold turkey until I have the CASH to spend on getting an alienware rig.

Hahaha... yet another internet rumour running rampant. Good job on spreading it further :thumbdwn:

Why waste your money? Just build it yourself and save the CASH.

they are not using dx9 hardware...the devs have had beta dx10 hardware for a few months now.

Crysis will run on SLI 7800GTX as Radeon 9800XT was running Far Cry...

The above post is a claim that I'd like to see referenced/cited properly.

My 5950 Ultra on an s754 2800 with only 512MB ram was running FarCry with everything but AA/AF, and the resolution maxed. My single 6800GT did it with everything but AA maxed- in both situations FarCry was very playable. In fact my 5950 never dipped below 30fps- then again it never went above it either. ;)

As such, I'm quite confident that even my rig would be able to handle Crysis at medium settings, with medium AA/AF, and a resolution of 12 x 10. And for reference, my current rig is a s754 3400, Epox 8NPA SLi, 550watt PSU, 2GB DDR500, and dual 7600GTs. Now those with top-end A64s and Core2 Duos with top-end graphics configs (high-end SLi, Quad SLi, and CrossFire) I'm sure they will be playing it at quite higher settings than I would.

Remember, with today's hardware we wont be running any of the DX10 features. As such, I'm sure Crysis will revert to DX9 when ran on DX9 hardware.

I just have a hard time believing that today's best rigs will struggle with Crysis. If so, then they really wouldn't be selling many copies of this game. Not every body whom games on PC is an enthusiast. As such, they have to make this game with that in mind.
