Total bull****, atleast until they release a demo and the game actually runs at 40-50fps. I just can't imagine a radical amount of optimisation done in such a short time. But that's just me. I also wonder what their definition of silky smooth is. For me, it's 60fps.

Yeah, it'll run silky-smooth with everything turned down. :D

Show me this in person and I'll believe it.

I believe that Crysis : Warhead will ship with a couple of bells & whistles .. hence what they said :cool:

Total marketing hype. They don't say what resolution and they probably only mean high settings.

yeah what a joke, as if we're supposed to believe this.

that's pretty much what was said about crysis.. that it will scale back to older
hardware..

lol

we all know it didn't even run well on hardware we had at the time..

i'll believe it when i see it

Ummm buy a normal case with a ATX PSU, and put the money left on a HD4870 or 8800GT+. Then it will be completly credible. It only has to run at 720p for it to be valid, any resolution higher can be consider 'deluxe'! lol

No surprises there.

If you actually read the "article" in the link to begin with it never states that Yerli said it nor Crytek. It says...

On the other article though that slaWter posted Yerli said so ..

The story is in German, but a translation tells us Yerli is offering reassurances to gamers that Crysis Warhead should be able to achieve frame rates of 30-35 FPS in "high" detail mode on a PC that costs around 400 Euros.

May be to low of a price, say 500-600 euros and it is correct. A 8800gt has no problem with Crysis at 720p with high settings. Considering that Warhead will sport improvements regarding perfomance and yet maintain better image IQ sounds excellent. :)
