So how good do you think the 8800gts 320mb in lets say... 1280x1024
high graphic settings will run upcoming games such as crysis and hellgate london, and how long till you think it will take a hit in having high graphics in games?

In games like Crysis, it'll probably struggle at maxed out settings.

We really have no idea. But since you say "THINK", I'll share my expectations. I bought an 8800GTS 320MB, and my feeling going into it was no way IMO will it max out Crysis at 1280x1024. I wouldn't be surprised if it wouldn't max out 10x7. It's still a very nice DX9 gaming card right now though.

But that has nothing to do with it only having 320MB; Oblivion shows no advantage going from 320MB to 640MB.

i have the 640 version and get lows of around 30 f.p.s. outside
with everything maxed(all sliders) and 4x a.a. and 8x asf.
except for the shadows.
it seems to avg around 50ish outside according to f.r.a.p.s.

Still no set release date for Crysis, last I read it was "sometime in 2007". If your lucky, there may be a total of 2-3 DX10 games released this year because all news indicates DX10 games are slated for a 2008 release. All things considered, I would bet that an 8800gts will be hurting when Crysis is released let alone after any updates and patches. I would go as far to say that an 8800gtx will be a mid-range card and the gts a low-end card by summer 2008 when the majority of DX10 games start hitting the market.

Thats exactly why i was thinking of holding off on a new rig, no idea what the future got in store for us gamers besides sexy graphics lol

The Supreme Commander DX10 patch was, the last I had heard, scheduled to be released around May. So far, that's pretty much it though. Crysis, who knows. FSX's patch has been pushed back till holiday season.

Why is it taking so long? Either DX10 is a pain in the butt to write code for, or it opens up so many new options for developers that they can't help but keep adding new stuff. That's my guess anyway.
April 8, 2007 3:26:12 AM

in terms of crysis it should run at 1280x1024 very well, but not necessarily maxed settings. the game is made to scale ahead 1.5 years, unless you have sli or crossfire solution any card you buy will "struggle"

thats just how games like oblivion and crysis are, they were developed to scale ahead so many years so the graphics would age better. Oblivion kills even a 7900gtx and 1950xt so just think about that when buying your next gfx card.... get the best card for the money

That's what I wondered, why is it taking so long. I mean, Vista has been released and DX10 compatible cards are available for purchase. From what I've gathered though, developers really haven't time to explore the API to see what they can do with DX10 let alone develop games and write code. Regardless, from what I've seen, DX10 games are going to have some fantastic eye candy. Can't wait till the titles are actaully on the market, personally I'm looking forward to Age of Conan and Bioshock.

This may be old, but here's a link to a thread in the nVidia forums with some DX10 screenshots.

Yeah the problem is that some of those aren't of actual gameplay, but pre-rendered scenes and artists' concept images.

But even still some of the early gameplay footage is impressive, and I think about half of the stuff in that thread was in-game, but one of the UT3 still, one of the Crysis stills, and one of the FSX stills were definitely not, and have been discussed before, I'm not sure about the others.

Even if they're only as good as the live motion demos sofar, then that a big jump in realizm, even from a lighting perspective alone.
April 8, 2007 11:54:30 PM

I guess only time will tell..
April 9, 2007 3:35:33 AM

damn didn't even notice I got it from another post, doesn't look the same at all, the second looks way better with that lighting and shading effects.
April 9, 2007 5:26:17 AM

Bottom line is that games take a really really long time to develop, and they don't always develop or release in concert with the advent of new software and hardware specs. But yeah, I think Crysis will be a bear to render, looking at how Far Cry was such a bitch on hardware when it first came out.
April 9, 2007 5:53:11 PM

yea i would of just figured that the 320mb would be running crysis pretty damn good if there releasing even lower graphic cards for dx10, i wouldn't even bother to touch any those if the 320 isn't running it well.
April 10, 2007 5:08:52 AM

I think the big thing will be rendering Crysis at higher resolutions. Us folks with 17" LCD monitors will probably be able to get the lion's share of visuals without having to buy a whole new, state-of-the-art card.
April 10, 2007 6:18:19 PM

and good thing i dont mind having a 17 inch monitor :D 
April 10, 2007 6:25:19 PM

I remember when 17 inch monitors used to be huge......

heh.

April 10, 2007 7:13:29 PM

Everything's pure conjecture at this point, so it's pretty meaningless to discuss what GPU's are going to do with DX10 games. I thought we were going to talk about what DX10 games are coming out.

Is Bioshock supposed to be a DX10 game?
April 10, 2007 7:38:37 PM

yea bioshock is gonna be dx10, gonna be interesting to see guildwars 2 in dx10

Ooh, I didn't even see there will be a GW2. Cool.
April 10, 2007 9:16:30 PM

I'd like to see if Blizzard would release an optional patch for World of Warcraft to support DirectX 10. Imagine an MMO like that, then imagine it DX10-compliant and with roughly 10 times better graphics. I think me and my Warrior would wet ourselves.

Sure, they'd have to redo the models and textures for it, but think of the hubbub that would cause!
April 10, 2007 9:19:04 PM

Yea there releasing one more expansion for guildwars, then guildwars 2 will go full throttle and won't be out for another year or two.

BTW
I hope someone lights blizzards building on fire and all there awesome devs gets trapped inside :twisted:


P.S. Blizzard would never do anything cool like that.

I ran the Call of Juarez Direct X10 benchmark and was ashamed of my 8800GTX's average of 23FPS at 1680x1050.

I don't think it works that way. DX10 "can" look 10x better than DX9. The problem is you also need 10x more content to make it look good.
Another problem is while you can add DX10 features, the engine will still be DX9. So it will never look as good as a native DX10 game and won't take advantage of the Vista kernal which should make the graphics faster also.
Then people also expect better physics, more objects, larger maps, more detailed story, etc etc.
I am sure someone is willing to do all this work can cause some real "hubbub" ! :bounce:

Thanks for telling me!
And Call of Juarez isn't even a native DX10 game!
I will SKIP the 8800/2800 generation completely.
Hate to think what Crysis (or some even more high-tech game) will do to a 8800 GTS 320. (or my X1950XT)
At 2560x1600 MAX??

Its a bit naughty of me i know but a little demon in me keeps saying that it wouldnt be a major suprise to see the new card and Crysis released at the same time or even bundled

The fact that it's not a native DX10 game is probably the cause for the poor framerates. The code was added in a rush to add some DX10 features, probably without too much optimization. I bet we're gonna see better framerates in games that will be more optimized to work with DX10, like Crysis or Bioshock.
Also, your X1950XT should run Crysis quite well under DX9, and it still looks awesome.

Yummy, I'd love to see Crysis bundled with an 9800.

yeah people are really hoping to get the first g92 along with crysis. and if this really happens, then 8800 cards and 2900 cards is a goner. because its speculated that g92 (gtx version) will be twice as fast as the 8800gtx.
