AMD and Crytek Energize the PC Gaming Industry with the Launch of "Crysis 3"

AMD (NYSE: AMD) today announced the North American launch of its Gaming Evolved title "Crysis 3". Working closely with Crytek, elite AMD engineers optimized "Crysis 3" to enable incredible performance on AMD Radeon graphics cards, powered by the award-winning AMD Graphics Core Next (GCN) architecture. The AMD/Crytek alliance accelerates "Crysis 3" with the world's fastest1 graphics processing unit (GPU), the AMD Radeon 7970 GHz Edition. This announcement comes just two weeks after the launch of the highly-acclaimed "Never Settle: Reloaded" bundle from AMD.

"'Crysis 3' is designed and optimized to be played on AMD Radeon graphics. No other GPU delivers the visual experience or next-generation features of AMD Radeon," said Matt Skynner, corporate vice president and general manager, AMD Graphics. "Our close collaboration with Crytek means the robust AMD GCN architecture is fully exploited by 'Crysis 3' code paths. We set out to deliver the best gaming experience possible for enthusiasts, and frankly we've accomplished this through the Gaming Evolved program. The best way to enjoy it is through the 'Never Settle Reloaded' bundle."

"To deliver hyper-realistic experiences, no other PC game demands more from the graphics processor than 'Crysis 3,'" said Cevat Yerli, CEO and president, Crytek. "By choosing AMD Radeon graphics, gamers experience 'Crysis 3' in stunning visual clarity, even when settings are cranked to the max .The launch of 'Crysis 3' is just the beginning of an exciting relationship with AMD and its Gaming Evolved program, which will help fuel development of future CryEngine titles. Together, AMD and Crytek will help redefine the PC gaming industry."

I can say that running two 7970's at 2560x1600 on Crysis 3 looks great and has real smooth game play. I finally got to play for about two hours last night and am really taking a liking to this game.
I have not heard or seen benchmarks comparing AMD GPU's versus Nvidia GPU's as of yet...

Why?
This is what was on the DVD box for the original Crysis and on the DVD box of Crysis 2.



I have them both here on my desk, I'm looking at them right now so I'm finding the idea of this thread quite entertaining.

The idea of this thread is not entertaining, it's informative and what are you talking about, it's totally OT.
I am guessing that OT stands for "Off Topic"?

Crysis 1 and 2 came before Crysis 3 correct?

Crytek were in partnership with NVIDIA with both Crysis and Crysis 2, now Crytek is in partnership with AMD to sell AMD video cards with this "Never Settle: Reloaded" bundle and in turn they are saying that it is Energizing the PC Gaming Industry with the launch of Crysis 3.

I would say I am being relevant to the Thread, or did you not read the thread?

Also things that entertain me might not entertain everyone.

Also your response is "OT" as you would say.

:rolleyes:

Y, same here with two 7950's at 1920x1080p. My expectations from my last post were met spot on, the game seems very well polished, I have Vsync and SMAA MGPU2x filter on and this thing runs at 60fps, occasionally and smoothly dropping to 40~50 on specific areas/views. No stuttering, no sudden drops, Crossfire at his best. Plus, game levels load pretty fast, and there's immediate flow/smoothness as soon we start playing. I guess they really did their homework. :)
