Crysis low, med, high, very high screen compare here

Meh, I was expecting lot more texture improvements in Very High.

wow, huge difference between DX9 and DX10 :)

Also the picture quality is bad. But thanks for the screens.

I'm not sure what these sceenshots are taken from but I guess from the singleplayer demo or preview version? Biggest difference seems be the ground texture which has strong occlusion mapping, sunrays, different HDR, larger drawdistance. Whats weird is that most or all these effects can be enabled in the DX9 MP beta so either some effects were "moved" to "veryhigh" (DX10) or are simply more efficient there, resulting in better framerate.

I think the distance to the textures is too low to actually tell of any possible improvement, maybe the detail layer is more detailed or the occlusion mapping is used more often.

Seriously what's up with limiting the draw distance (and maybe the LOD) in High (DX9) and Very High (DX10)? This is NOT a feature. For years we have been sliding the draw distance and the LOD and now we won't be able to adjust them cause of the bloody DX10? And on top of this... most of the DX10 features like occlusion mapping and sunshafts are enabled in the DX9 beta via tweaks. And finally this screenshot is not impressive at all. Hell it's even worse than the beta graphics

Less cartoony as the higher quality setting is turned on ...nice ..might just have to go Vista...

I kinda like dx9 on med settings, reminds me of far cry with lots of color.

I'll be happy with high dx9 dx10 looks sweet but I'm not ready to migrate to Vista for one game. I'm waiting for the hardware that will really run it well next gen or further.

You can really see the difference by looking at the rocks in the bottom foreground of that gif sequence. Now I wonder what hardware it would take to make that level of detail playable...

i think that it's going to run fine in dx10 on the 8800 gtx, but i could be wrong.

on the other hand, some people aren't satisfied with 45-60 fps, so it depends upon how you look at it. i've never understood what's so bad about 60 fps, even 30.

they've taken a long time, so i don't think it's going to disappoint.

and i can't believe ea is actually publishing it.

it'll be the first ea game i'd buy since the 16 bit era.

it's due to the z-buffer limitations, possibly, i don't really know. but it really does look like **** how **** far away looks all ****ty and ****.

i miss the w-buffer.

i think that the unreal 3 engine is probably better.
