I certainly believe that nextgen graphic cards will be tested especially on Crysis to run it well. The company that shows best numbers in Crysis will win in my opinion, I don't care whatever tops upcoming futuremark product.

I think some of us forget our monster GTX's (and Ultra in the sense its just a faster GTX) are a year old now. If everyone recalls, when the 6800 series was king it took about a year as well before they started to be pushed to thier limits in games. I welcome something that pushes my hardware to its limits For now just scalling back to High on a few things allows me to play 1920x1200 with 2xAA just fine and still have it look damn good. When more than 1 game starts to push my hardware in the way Crysis does I will look toward better hardware, for now as its the only game doing it I don't really care to much and have no plans for an upgrade

I think hardocp make a good point that the 8800 series is more power-limited than memory w/ crysis. To play it at what's considered "playable" settings, you're not gonna run into memory limitations anyways because those playable settings are probably low enough not to need more than 320 or so mb (this is the case between the 2 GTSs anyways).

Is it true that the demo doesn't have quad core optimizations? Someone over at the Crysis forums said that it didn't and that the final version should give about a 10 - 15 % boost for each extra core. This sounded really high to me for a game that doesn't seem CPU dependant.

I guess that means in the scenario where the GPU isn't the bottleneck, which basically all current GPUs are bottlenecks.

The thing is performance doesn't have to get better. What we need are new video cards. As $n[]pErMan pointed out, the 8800gtx is almost a year old. That's ancient in terms of technology. And crysis wasn't designed to run at max settings on today's technology. So suck it up and be patient. Play it at high settings in DX9 mode for now. In half a year replay it in DX10 with maxed settings.

The performance isn't even that bad, unless you are aiming for really high resolutions. Due to my rather mediocre monitor I run at 1280x1024, so I'm running DX10 with High settings and a little AA at very smooth framerates. I do plan on upgrading to the next high-end graphics card, and hopefully picking up an 8 core processor, which I'm sure will be available by the end of '08.

I don't think anyone really expected to run crysis completely maxed out smoothly. After all Crytek did say they were trying to make a game that would scale up for future graphic cards. But it is a bit misleading with what Cevat said in the past (like wasn't there a time he said the 7900 GT would run the game on all high settings smoothly?). Since statements like that are a bit old I guess it's possible former high settings are now medium, etc.

Hopefully SLI will work in the full version.

QFT on everything you said. I'm very happy with my GTX, but even happier that there is already a game pushing it's limits...I am now looking forward to a new Nvidia/ATI part that can play Crysis with ease...But then again, I am always an early adopter for high end GPU's (though nowhere near as bad as Jakup :P )

I have seen this sentence many times before, and it always makes me laugh.
using that argument you can justify any new game with bad preformance.
and please remember that nvidia is working close to Crytek, that way when even the authors says that the game is meant to be played (fully support) on next gen hardware, than it only confirms that 8xxx are the next FX series in nvidia history (if we're talking about dx10 of course, cause they handle dx9 quite well)

Yep. I'm thoroughly impressed with the performance both me and my brother have with our systems. He's using a 2 and a half year old 939 system with a 320mb GTS and it benchmarks right at 30 fps @ just about all high graphics options and a few of the DX10 effects turned on.

Mine benches 25fps with all ultra high settings enabled.

I can't think of asking for anything more from video technology that's well over a year old. I think that the 8800's are still going to be a top contender card well into late next year.
