I was able to MAX Crysis 3 with 2xSMAA @ 1080P with average FPS in the 40-50 range on an old Phenom II x6 1090t OCd to 4.0GHz, DDR3 1600 RAM and 2 x Radeon HD 7950's @ stock.

During testing, the CPU was in the 95% load range and BOTH GPUs were in the 95-99% load range. So Crysis 3 makes good use of all your system resources and is a little GPU heavy.

Crysis 3 does well on either modern AMD or Intel hardware because it is optimized well for multi-core CPUs. However, the new FX 6 core needs to run at 4.2GHz+ to = the performance of the Phenom II x6 @ 4.0 because the new architecture has lower IPC. So plan on an OC of 4.4-4.5 or better with this particular combo. Not hard to do, just clarifying to keep this as close to apples-to-apples as I can.

A single R9 290 will probably perform as well or better than the 2 7950's I OCd while I was playing with it, but use a little less power, generate a little less heat, and cose a bit less overall.

Hope that helps.

even an hd 5450 will RUN crysis 3 on max.....
it'll be a kind of walking

what frame rate do you consider as playable depends a lot......
if u consider 35+ as playable, then yes you can max it.......
if you consider it as 100000+ then sorry, you cant max it.....

some people consider anything above 1+ as playable...for them an hd 5450 can max it......

so maxing out a game is a very relative and individual dependant term.....
hope you got your answer....
