Crysis + windows 7 + 4870x2 = its nice...

as per my specs down below, i have windows vista. now playing crysis on it was very hair pulling. would top 30 fps

windows 7 on other hand is a godsend! i can easily scrape 60 - 85 fps when free and 45 - 50 fps when in battle.

i cant believe how much of an improvement their was!!!:) :) :)

has this happened to any one else that has upgraded to 7 rc?? would like to know.


NOTE: game settings for both vista and 7 = gamer/high, no aa, 1280x720(yeah i know but still looks dam good)

More about crysis windows 4870x2 nice
  1. why play @ that resolution with those specs...? *wtf*
  2. Wow, a 4870x2 at 1280....

    What is the native res of your monitor?
  3. He probably has a HDTV running at 720p max resolution
  4. nono i have full 1080p suppurt. i use a sony 40incch lcd. 720p just quite good. i know its not as good as 1080i but still, if it ain broke dont fix it!
  5. Well the main reason people are commenting about it is because a 4870X2 at that res is quite useless since it does very little work.

    try it at 1920x1080p and see if it runs that great.

    As for the FPS boost, I have heard that 7 is highly optimized. I only wounder if they will give Vista the same optimizations via SP2....
  6. It will help that it's a clean install of Windows (I assume) with very little going on in the background.
