The game definitely looks great... like Crysis 2 but better, not as console-y. And it definitely melts PCs... it currently doesn't support multi-GPU configs but on my rig using a single 7970 (@1195/1800), I benchmarked 10 minutes of gameplay in FRAPS, completely maxed out 1920x1200, and got the following FPS numbers which felt very playable but not as smooth as I'd want:
Not too shabby. I'm impressed. And it was using all 8 threads on my 2600k, though total CPU usage was around 25-30%. I'm sure that the performance numbers will increase slightly by release and with driver updates, but this looks like another title where you're looking at multi-GPU being needed for buttery smooth maxed out gameplay at even a standard 1080p resolution (unless Nvidia/AMD release a new round of cards before the game).
That's not too bad. So when it's tweaked and running off 2 cards, it should be a nice playable experience! I hope it's better than Crysis 2, that game just lacked.
