What the hell? Crysis 3 kills even a super-powerful computers?
Look at the chart ... and other results: Test Graphics Cards in Crysis 3
Anyone else noticing this is pushing hardware harder than anything else? My top card hit 83c with it's Twin Turbo II maxed out. First game to ever push my power usage into the 90s.
Yes it does push my system. I was playing with everything maxed out with two 7970's:
Was playable but Fraps was showing about 30-40 fps.
Reduced MSAA to x2 and fps are much better (can't remember exactly what they are...).
I can only stand it on FXAA, as far as frame rate goes. I think if I didn't mind shying away from 60 I'd do the lower TXAA setting. MSAA still doesn't look right.
I hate console ports. It took them some time to bring Crysis 2 to PC standards. Still a console port though with lacking quality.
I want to get this but I am concerned it will be another boring but pretty game, like Crysis 2 was..
Just finished the game, I enjoyed it. Ending was pretty cool, it gave you some really good memories of the first game (not gonna spoil anything)
i played 2 missions so far and the gameplay is decent. it's certainly better than crysis 2, definitely worse than far cry 3. there is no open world, it's just a linear shooter.
Nice! I can only get medium working and it's still a bit choppy every now and then.
Just another one way tunnel run. Damnit crytek/ea! I wanted an open world game.
Maybe I should be looking at FC3 then...lol..
wow makes my pc chug! Playing at very high and had to lower it to just 'high' settings.
played the beginning so far, I thought I'd have been sweet with one 7970 but now I know it needs at least two for MAXIMUM eye candy. Yay for Crytek and their kick ass graphics engine, this is making me a little needy for an extra 7970.
Crysis 2 never got to PC standards lol. Even with the HD texture pack and tesselation add-on it still wasn't that great. And get used to console ports, 90% of PC games are them.
The visuals in this game are really quite spectacular, the wind moving the grass is mesmerising and like others here - my 7970's were sweating! seen as low as 38fps in the jungle map, maybe even lower when I was trying to fend off the Ceph. But as soon as the action subsides I can't help but stop, look around and go oooohh.
That said, its still not quite as ground breaking even in the graphics department as I had hoped for, but it's still more visually impressive than any other game i've played to date. Gameplay is better than C2 but not open like the original.
Just finished the game. 8 hours total being stealthy and exploring the little bit I could. Overall I enjoyed it but the ending had me left wanting more. Gameplay was good, graphics, good. Story, meh.
Just installed 314.09 with a modded inf. Runs noticably better so I tested out the AA modes again. All of them suck. Not a single one comes close to addressing the grass. Sticking with FXAA since the others just don't bring anything good to the table but they zap like 20-30 fps.
Pretty much every post in here has validated my concerns.
It's a linear shooter with a meh story and nice graphics..
I won't be getting it until it goes on sale.
The Crysis franchise has imho died..
It has been beaten to death, hung and left out to dry, by the console..
I'm sure whoever picked up the suitcase full of $$ from AMD disagrees with you
The next on our list is Metro 2033 last light, the only game on our spot that can stress high end hardware, will see what happen...
But i warn your Metro 2033 was a tunnel gameplay campaign and be sure Last Light will be the same...
One way tunnel singleplayer campaign will remain our curse.
Don't see any logic behind using 8x MSAA at that res. :shadedshu
Only logic I see is the logic of lulz, being applied here.
my cpu is bottlenecking and struggling, I had to set everything to medium so the cpu would be at 80-90% load and the gpu 50-70%! and multi thread usage is high 90s!!
youve got some problems if your GPU usage is only 50-70%.
a shit cpu??! fps is high tho and benchmarks are normal?
