That one is rendered on a PC i think, but it's absolutely in-engine. The dx9-dx10 tech trailer was from a closed combine map, very small with a edited ToD and pre-alpha assets etc. U can get even better graphics than that in crysis now. But i agree, the ToD needed some work in the vanilla version of crysis. But that doesn't make the graphics worse, it's just different shadow, lighting and color setting. And that tech trailer was most likely rendered in higher res then downsampled. Like crytek often do their trailers to reduce aliasing and shimmering, thats why it looked better. With the correct ToD and supersampling u can make crysis look like that easily.

Crysis 2 runs easier than crysis 1. Also, crysis 2 runs fine on a geforce 9800gtx according to a person i know who actually work on crysis 2 as level artist. His name is Helder Pinto, was the winner of a map contest on . I was helping him with beta testing of his map and we became friends so yes, the source is secure.
