Default Re: Wonder how well you PC will run Crysis

Your logic is flawed here. The resolutions just do not scale in the way that you're saying they do.

For instance, look here at the comparison of COD2 ran at the same settings but at different resolutions that are in question here (1920x1200 vs 1600x1200)

62fps for the lower res vs 55 for the higher res. 7/62 = 11% difference in performance, not "30%" as you keep claiming. And that's taking your "AA is tougher at higher res" theory into account, as well. There's just not that big of a difference in performance.

You just don't know what in the hell you're talking about. If your computer is playing Call of Duty 2 at an average of 44 fps then, as I've said all along, you need to learn how to optimize it for better performance.

i d/led the cod 2 demo again and gave it a run thru at 1920 x 1200 4x/16x. avg fps was around 44 with drops to the 30s during certain scenes.
Then your computer's fubar, because firingsquad got 55fps on average on COD2 w/ an FX-62 paired with an 8800GTX:

And as for your comments about FEAR running like crap on a single 8800GTX?

At 1920x1200 res and 4xAA anandtech got an average of 59fps on a single stock-clocked 8800GTX:

Actually, now that I look at it, they were pushing even more pixels than you are (1920x1440) so it even heightens the blow here.

i never mentioned what it played like on my system with 16x aa, i was just stating how it would likely perform based on how it performs with 4x aa. and i never mentioned or implied that i run my games with 16x aa. please quote the posts where i imply or state such.
Oh, okay. Right here:

"i know cod2 doesnt run at 60 fps at 1920 x 1200 with 16x aa 16x af. and it drops to around 30 regularly."

You were saying?

and that brings me to my original point, when the 8800 already hits walls on current titles at 1920 x 1200, how do u people expect it to run crysis smoothly at an even higher res?
Do you consider an average of "59fps" like the 8800GTX plays FEAR at your res "hitting a wall?" That's my original point; you're overexaggerating. Either your computer is seriously screwed up or you just enjoy lying out of both sides of your mouth for attention.

yes consoles have worse texture filtering and resolution than pcs, but they make up for it with much better lighting, much higher poly counts, better animation, and far more detail in general. crysis will be the first game to surpass the consoles graphically.
Ridiculous. Dark Messiah and Oblivion on the 8800GTX look better than any game I've seen on the consoles. I even played Lost Planet on the 360 the same day I installed Dark Messiah for the first time and couldn't believe how low-res and jaggied the textures on the 360 looked by comparison.

Dark Messiah:


Lost Planet:

You're nuts.
