Maybe the devs used Geforce 10 series cards themselves when developing and testnig the game.

no in lots of interviews they said they not only used ultras/gtx's, but lower cards like gts's and such. guess they weren't looking for good framerates while they were working in it then.

Amen to that. We've already waited all summer for the new games to come out.

The hardware wasn't really any different a year ago.

The 8800GTX has been out since November 9th 2006.

From a pure hardware standpoint this is absolutely true. The QX6700 was released in November as well, so people who were running quad + 8800GTX SLI haven't seen much of an improvement except for maybe drivers and an extra 2GB ram. There were several people on this forum who ran systems with those specs, alot fewer now, ironically many decided to drop the 2nd GTX.

The direction the graphics industry going is starting to really annoy me. It seems like Nvidia and AMD both think that adding more and more gpus (gpus by themselves that are severely lacking in Crysis - even a step back from where they were a year ago) will somehow change the performance problems...

they did bad with coding the game simple as that youll see when you have 9800GTX SLI it still runs crappy im sure and when the 10series of cards comes you still can max the game but it will be heavy it wont get smooth because the code was done wrong....and no i am not ranting because i cant run it i can and i have finished it.

but still something is done wrong with the game im sure it is

I think this one will... it scales pretty well if you drop res and some settings. The fact that it is playable at 25FPS says a lot... most games aren't.

Well, almost every company release their games too early and fix the remaining bugs with patches ....

On consoles nowadays u see the same evolution (consoles with HDD that become bigger and bigger)

In the past the console game had to be almost bugfree before it went gold, nowadays there are also alot of bugs left (lesser than on pc, but still enough), cause they know they can still patch the game afterwards...

I'm sure you're 100% qualified to say this! I mean come on. CryEngine 2 is the most technologically advanced game engine the PC has ever seen. It is pushing year old GPU technology to its limits. It's capable of environments the size we've never seen in any other game. Have you ever watched the dynamic lighting and shadowmap system? You can watch shadows move and change as time goes on. Not many games come anywhere near this level of realism. I think this game engine is far more of a marvel at present time than CryEngine 1 was at its time. We need games to start pushing the graphics industry to come up with something better. AMD has really been stagnate in coming up with competitive products and NVIDIA is just sitting with their 8 series laughing all the way to the bank making record profits.
