Don't ask how I know but it does.They must of enabled multi-core but gameplay is WAY smoother..

Yeah, heard so too. The game won't be out till 16 in HK but the pirated ones are already... sad.

I think the game only uses the additional threads when the game calls it.

Plus, the game is hugely GPU bound anyways so I doubt a CPU will impact it much anyways.

It doesn't show in fps but during intense action performance doesn't tank. you don't have to believe me if you don't want but it does play better for me.

Well thats certainly not what they said...

LegionHardware made some references to this lately but I remember seeing a video where he said these things...

"Over the past few months there have been countless interviews with the people from Crytek about Crysis and 'Cervat Yerli' has made a few claims that we wanted to look into. First of all he claimed that upgrading to a quad-core processor would be essential and this had quite a few gamers madly chasing after Q6600 processors. From what we have seen based purely on this single-player game, is that quad-core processors will make little to no difference at all.

Cervat Yerli also claimed that Crysis is a very CPU bound game rather than GPU bound. This is interesting since we found the complete opposite, Crysis is very much GPU bound and any Core 2 Duo processor and probably even any Athlon64 X2 processor for that matter will handle Crysis very well. So at this stage we do not believe quad-core processors are a necessity and we also do not believe you will need to upgrade to the latest and greatest Core 2 processor."

I have a friend that works at a store and is manager so I almost always get my games a day or 2 early sometimes sooner depending on the shipment. But anyways it does run better than the demo.

For this reason i think...

In dx10 i have everything to very high exept shadows and shaders to high and in the demo it had motion blur really noticeable at those settings.In the full version. I dont get that blur effect with zoom or motion blur from moving mouse unless i put the shaders on very high. Duno if its a bug or how it was meant to be to begin with but thats why its running smoother for me i think.

BTW im running it at 720p if anyone wanted to know.

lol

regarding the other posts... maybe DX10 performance has been improved. I've been playing it in XP so on that I cannot speak. XP performs the same as the demo.

Everyone has an agenda.

Re: Retail Crysis plays better than DEMO....
 
By tweaking the demo I was very happy with the visuals vs. performance @ DX10\64 1920x1200 2xAA, all "high", shaders "medium"....I have no problem playing the game at those settings. I'll take it as a nice bonus is the retail is better optimized and I can get those shaders to "high" :D
Anyway...we'll all know in a matter of 1 day ....

I'll be more happy with proper SLI support in DX10 than multi-core support to be honest.
