Default Re: Crysis Warhead Will Run on $653 Machine!!

Something about these shots does make them look sort of cartoony compared to Crysis...

Very strange.

Also, there are lots of pics of what looks like a new grenade launcher weapon.

I don't really understand what the big deal with Crysis performance is. Sure, most of us can't run it at "very high" with AA and AF, but that's how it is with cutting edge games. But the game looks phenomenal at "High" anyway. I'd rather it be like this -- games pushing the graphical boundaries -- than to have things just be consolized with good performance at max on midrange systems.

Just my two cents...

First performance analysis of Crysis Warhead - four GiByte required?
http://www.pcgameshardware.com/aid,6...Byte_required/

Quote:
The test PC was a high-end system with a Core 2 Extreme QX9770, four GiByte DDR3 1333 RAM and a Geforce GTX 260. With the command "r_displayinfo 1” we activated the display of details like framerate, memory usage or the number of polygons displayed (see screenshots). According to the information delivered, Crysis Warhead was running in DX 9 mode only. Anti Aliasing was inactive and the resolution was set to 1,152 x 864. In the graphics options we couldn't change anything and the menu "Advanced” could not be accessed. Therefore we don't know about the exact detail settings. The console displayed "Custom” - so the settings did not match any of the presets. We suppose - because of what we saw in the game - that most details had been set to "high”. Since the version was a prerelease one, it could be that Crytek did not optimize it yet.

The framerate was constantly above 41. But the memory usage was surprisingly high: According to the command console 2,146 MiByte were in use. In Crysis this value never exceeded 1,300 MiByte. On a PC with only 2 GiByte memory this scene is likely to cause loading lags.

After the intro there was a spectacular car chase with an included air strike. Here the memory usage increased to 2,180 MiByte. The framerate was around 35 fps and fell to 29 fps in challenging scenes. In the following scene we took a harbor on foot. Here the fps rate was round 35 pictures per second and Crysis Warhead used up to 2,190 MiByte. But you have to bear in mind that Crytek got a lot of time for optimizations. We are anxious to see the final version.
Rename the thread to: Crysis Warhead Will Run on "a new" $653 Machine!!

Crysis Warhead already gone gold, I dont think it will run well with my 3 years old Athlon 64 X2 4400+. Will wait until I see benchmarks to decide between Core 2 Quad Q9550 with 8GB DDR2 memory vs Core 7i 2.66GHz with 6GB DDR3 or... 12GB DDR3.
