Default Free 25% speed boost in Crysis

Sorry if this has been covered already.

If you are running the x64 executable then change the shortcut to 'bin32' instead and get a nice boost. The x64 version is slower than the 32 bit version for some dumb reason. In x64 XP anyway. This was verified by running the x32 and x64 GPU/CPU benchmarks with the same settings.

I went from unplayable to 1440x900 with Very High settings, 8x CSAA and 8x AF with my lowly system listed below:

XP Pro x64
8800 GTS 640MB stock
AMD X2 4200+
2 GB DDR


With a Quad core upgrade this game will be very playable (in DX9 anyway)

I am not aware of any extra content in the x64 version (like Far Cry) so they definately have some headroom to optimize the x64 version.

The 64bit executable also runs better for me, in 64bit. I haven't tested in Vista 32...

Also, how is it you're running Very High with XP64???

The draw distance seems better, and the textures on objects far away such as mountains are much better.

That's a bug. If you switch the textures to medium, you will see the mountain properly. It should be fixed in the final version, hell you can even fix it yourself in 10 seconds.
