To see if it's enabled just bring down the console and type \r_3m30path then hit enter. It should say \r_sm30path=1 which means it is enabled.
Argh! Its not true
"D:\Crytek\Far Cry\Bin32\FarCry.exe" "r_sm30path 1" works without dev mode. The console does say its on, however it isnt. If you type \r_sm30path 1 in the console you're FPS will go higher (certain areas).
