That's just... wow.
I really want to get a DX10 card for sure now
the old forest one looks awesome!
And people say SM 4.0 isn't a big deal Psst
Wow..., so realistic...
Oh, now I'm really upset. Are these DX9 or DX10 renderings? I hope DX9.
i wonder where the source photos were taken. i remember reading it somewhere...was it Guam or something? This game looks amazing. Im gonna have to seriously upgrade/rebuild a new hardcore system from the ground up.
Screenshots are too small, and with no info for the comparisons; ie weather their side by side examples of DX10 vs DX9 rendering, I find it very difficult to be impressed.
Back when I was playing Playstation 1 and watching those game FMV's I always wondered when we'll play games that look like the ones in the cinematics.
I think we're already there.... ??
Im impressed (I save filed it to my desktop to get a closer view, kinda pixelated though).
I dont know anything about rendering really (how long the picture takes to change?), but I like the shadows and life likeness, can go for a walk on the beach at home it seems now.
We can use case fans to simulate the breeze !!
I duno, i expected more from them, DX10 has so much growing room, i hope this inspires other game companies to release better games, and code them correctly, so they can utalize all these dual and quad core CPUs.
Lol, when i first looked through the photos, i ignored the ones on the right and assumed the left ones were Crysis renderings.
You can imagine what i was thinking.
Amazingly realistic, even from the relatively low-res pics.
Can crysis be played on my system or does it need a DX10 card to even run?
crysis can be played with a 'high end dx9 rig' btw.
about those pics!, they're freakin real!! A dx9 render can't battle them for long.
Dx10 is really pwning , we have to w8 to see what folds up next .
The 1st gen dx10 is awesome!, then what'll be the next gen !!? PWNING
nothing has ever come to close to these renderings.
Dude... all these were done with DX9 renders...
Better shader utilisation = better graphics. Doesn't matter if its SM 4.0, or 3.0 if its not utilised properly you will have problems.
Crytek uses so much time in utilising the new and old technology to the fullest of its potential.
how do we know this is only dx9 ?
these are Renders or screenshots then??? make up your mind. For renders they are crap, for screenshots they are amazing!
i know this shit always happens. we get some awesome screenshots/renderings/video and we never know if its dx10 or dx 9 or if its screen shot or a rendering. what cards were used. what FPS it was taken at. give us some damn details!!!
All i know is this, regardless of if its dx9 or 10 it looks pretty damn nice if its in-game. May get bashed down on the frame rate though.
the green has to kill even if its just textured, which it doesnt look like
