My 7950 will probably run at 87-90c as usual since XFX Double Dissipation coolers are nice looking but borderline functional, unfortunately.

The recommend system requirements says a quad core CPU and in the example given, there is a dual core i3 :P Well maybe hyper threading does come into picture. Anyway, looking forward to this game.

But then right below that is the Phenom II X2 which does not have HT. There goes that theory. :P

Yeah that looks out of place. Seems itsVERY GPU bound.

Ill probably buy this game, just to see if i could run it haha! Crysis is just another shooter, only thing that it has going for it really is graphics.

In reality I'm guessing the real high end requirements for a decent FPS will be:
HD 8970
GTX 780

In 5 years, someone will read an article about a new supercomputer being built and ask if it can play Crysis 3.

I've asked this before without an answer so here goes again.

Does anyone know at what resolution they use for each?

Example:

Minimum - 720p

Recommended - 1080p

Hi-Performance - 1440p

720p for minimum? that sounds alittle bit too high.
But then again, they did ask for pretty decent cards for it. The 5770 is a very good card though. It makes me wonder if the game will come in DX11 only.

Well I will see how well my rig handles it at 2560x1600...
Hopefully Nvidia gets the SLI drivers out for this one on time.

The MP alpha was poorly. I would get barely 30 FPS. People were even getting as low as 15FPS with mid-high range systems.

Silly question: Can an APU run this game? The A8-3870K is a quad-core cpu, and it has a Radeon HD 6550.

We won't know until the game is out. Game companies are notorious for giving us unrealistic requirements, so take this thread with a pinch of salt.

Taking a conservative guess. The CPU portion, definitely. The GPU portion (6550) is pretty weak so my guess is 720p at low/medium/low settings, and no anti aliasing.

Alpha lagged the shit out of my PC when set to MAX but it looked really good. Looks like made to play in 3D.
