Benchmark Scores i can finally play crysis
I've played two recent games running on Cryengine, Homefront: The Revolution, and Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3. Neither, with Cryengine 3 looks as good as Crysis 3 does from several years ago.

Personal opinion is that Crytek hasn't licensed all facets of the engine, and kept several measures to themselves for better quality.

Is crytek still around? Last I heard they were headed to bankruptcy.

They are still working on the engine. I just don't think they are in the position to make games.

i hope they implement Vulkan so we can see how it goes .
Good News @Capitan Harlock, you may still get Vulkan at a later time after all assuming this list of CryEngine games wiki is correct.

it's more like Crytek being Crytek? they are one of the company out there grahpic first gameplay second :p . but the engine was develop by them so they probably know it the best how to use them. also i heard several talk that Crytek is quite poor in terms of support. that's why several developer decided to move away from Cryengine.

Apparently there might be a bug(at least with the GTX1060) rendering shadows in the game when people looked at the DF performance review:

https://www.reddit.com/r/Amd/comments/6a6yoa/just_lurking_around_new_prey_bench_vids_then_i/

There are gifs down the thread where people noticed it in jokers review too.

Any chance anyone can confirm this??

Edit!!

Looking at what the PCGH review said,the game appears to reduce details on cards automatically depending on VRAM,so it might be a game bug??

Here are some examples pulled off OcUK and Reddit:

That's not a bug, it's a feature. ;) It tries to save Vram.

So Nvidia is skewing results by deactivating shadows, nice.

A side by side comparison of GTX 1080 Ti performance on launch day vs 1.2 patch:


1.2 patch seems to induce massive framerate drop for 1080 Ti (and will probably do so for other GTX 10 cards too).

@W1zzard: could you please share your thoughts on this?

/edit: I know the patch also affects AMD cards (video), I just want to know if it's proportional or not.

Nvidia released a new driver now to "partly" fix problems in Prey.

To answer myself: retest on both Fury X and 1080 Ti, shows:

a) 1080p resolution is barely affected for both vendors
b) that 1080 Ti looses massively more FPS than Fury X at 1440p and 4k. We are talking about ~20% loss for nVidia and 5% for AMD

See for yourself:

CryEngine and performance.

Did someone ever play this?

Remarkable detail, and it runs like a dream. Tell me again Prey performs well on CryEngine when you compare it to the performance and IQ of this game, done by a B-studio.

If you havent played this and its on sale, pick it up, its a good 20 hours of spellcasting madness with some pretty nice depth in crafting spells (yes, you can add all sorts of effects to I believe 7 spell schools with 3 or 4 spells each, and you can combine elements as well). Don't expect (any) good narrative, just pure raw action.

That runs and looks better because it is on Cryengine 3. Just look at the following list of games on Cryengine 4 and 5, and many, although nice looking, have taken a step or two back from the excellent renderings of Cryengine 3.
