DX11 seems like more of a performance booster than DX10 was.

Early Crysis System Requirement estimates (outdated)

Minimum System Requirements
CPU: 2 GHz (early estimate)
RAM: 512 MB (early estimate)
GFX: DirectX 9.0b or higher


Yerly from CryTek on System Requirements
You'll probably want a pretty powerful PC to enjoy the game. While we haven't identified a target CPU, you will need a graphics card with support for shader model 2.0.

With that said, Far Cry was pretty scalable on a wide variety of systems once it shipped, so you can expect the same with Crysis. The game will ship with support for both DirectX 9 and DirectX 10, the upcoming version of DirectX that will be included with Windows Vista. And while the game will certainly run well with DirectX 9, you'll probably see better performance with DirectX 10 and Windows Vista, thanks to the performance improvements Microsoft has made.

Did you ever heard for Crysis XP very high tweak? It allows DX9 users to use the "Very High" settings that are exclusively reserved for DX10 users.

Yet another reason for me to hate the original Crysis.

Get your facts straight, crysis was both dx9 and 10.

Those dx10 effects was not locked, but were not supported on dx9 hardware. Were talking about only minor graphical aspects:
Soft particles, object based motion blur and something more which i can't remember. Apart from those, there was no difference in the graphics when running crysis in DX10@Vh and running dx9 with the "veryhigh tweak" by altering some cvar config files.

Wrong... Veryhigh looked better (not far better) than the High preset.. you could take one screenshot in dx9 with tweaked veryhigh and one with veryhigh from the ingame options menu in dx10 and you couldn't tell the difference (if you didn't do some actions that displayed object-MB or soft particles...)

Actually not all games had worse performance in dx10. Take FC2 for an example...
