yeah oblivion uses 400+ in jungles for me iirc, normally it uses about 350 to 400 with no AA!!!

absolutely not, not even 512 is enough imo in some areas, but 2900 has 512bit interface(vs 384bit of GTX, and 320bit of GTS), so i dont think its a issue for 2900XT 512 users (but if a GTS were to have 512MB VRAM, i doubt it will be enough for 1680x1050 2xAA or 4xAA) .. the 2900XT 1GB will be really nice for this game though !!

this is on high 1680x1050 no AA, no AS i think, or w/e AS the game set .. with a GTS 640 @ 648/1624/900 (PS the beta dont support SLI)

http://img509.imageshack.us/img509/1076/shot0109qw6.jpg

i was getting 420 to 450 most of the time , about 1 min after spawn... and in some area when theres action it creeps near 500 , and this is with no AA !!!!

and keep in mind this is BETA ,.... NO DESTRUCTIBLE ENVIRONMENT, NO "ULTRA HIGH" SETTING

and to dream that crytek will somehow cut VRAM usage by 30 to 40% after optimization is ridiculous

a bit of good old fashioned one on one? lol

I was playing etqw for about 3 hours again last night. It's one of those games where I don't feel compelled to be on top of the leaderboard all the time. more interested in having fun with calling in air strikes and pounding the strogg mech thing with artillery.

dunno what to play tonight now, cos I've also got the TF2 beta waiting.

it should be enough

for me indoor i get ~350MB at 1680x1050 high, no AA, default AS

but outdoor especially near the ocean when u can see really far, it gets to 410 ~ 450MB,

this one was taken after a gun fight, in the garbage cargo near the warehouse near the ocean

http://img222.imageshack.us/img222/5776/shot0111mo9.jpg

basically the more stuff u see, the more RAM it eats ....

now i jsut need nv/crytek to get SLI working on this game im all set ... i played it on Vista the frame rate was horrendous, about 30 to 40% slower than XP !!! im getting around avg 30 to 35fps(fraps) about everywhere in XP, and around 17fps when zoomed in with sniper rifle, yeah zoom it slow u down

but Vista is like 15 to 20fps !! even indoor .... i am not giving up that much performance just for some eye candy which i prolly wont even notice, smooth gameplay is what i need'

this is MP beta, so that means SP will definitely get better performance, and with more optimization i think a E6600 + GTX+2GB DDR2 800 + XP can it max out(DX9) at 1680x1050 2xAAwith 35/40+fps always in SP

Please all remember that they originally wanted the game to scale two years into the future. Yes ULTRA settings were meant for hardware released in 2009. Have they changed their original plan? Yes somewhat because most likely the high-end cards will be able to play it on the highest settings but its no doubt that next-gen cards will play it even better.
