Whats the big deal with crysis?

I have a GTS 250 512 MB, (currently using friends 1gb model though).

I can run crysis and crysis warhead at a very playable framerate, guessing around 30 fps, on the highest settings. (no AA though)
and that is on FullHD 1920*1080....


so why is everybody complaining that their GTX280 will hardly do those framerates???

btw is there any way to benchmark crysis? some tool or something? so I can get more accurate numbers?

    the reason is every kid sets the game to enthusiast, turns AA & AF to max, then screams why one of the worst coded games of all time runs so slow. Its the ultimate bragging right to say "my PC can play Crysis @_____".

    set to high, with reasonable eye candy, the game plays fine

    I dunno why people put AA in Crysis? It makes the vegatation rubbish and eats a LOT of performance during explosions.

    I usually turn AA to x2 or x4...without AA, the jagged lines around the mountains, vehicles, buildings, guns, etc are noticeable. Beyond x4, I can't tell the difference.
  4. Is not everithing in the GPU, most thing depend of CPU and MEM. Maybe somebody can't play Crysis in Full HD becouse have poot CPU or 1gb MEM. Also depend of OS, in Windows XP is biger performance, in Windows 7 lower.
    What if i have GTX285 (example) if i have CPU celeron and Ram MEM 1gb or lower and run Crysis on Windows 7.
  5. Op, is that on DX9 or DX10?

    Crysis is one of the most demanding games out there, with some of the most stunning visuals.

    Crysis is pretty easy until you turn up the AA.

    Personally I can't stand crysis w/o aa, especially now that I can handle 8x on 1080. :)
  6. i guess at the time of release, the graphics of crysis were what you could call advanced, though really they just made everything pretty. but now there are more demanding games by far, i think its not only the bragging rights, its also become a bit of a joke thing to say "yeah, but will it run crysis"

    personally, i don't like anything about crysis - i don't like the game play, graphics, and i didn't like crysis warhead.

    Can you name two or three of them?
  8. ok, maybe there arent many yet, but there will be... soon. how about crysis in 3d :D :p


    anyway, you are all forgetting the real question...... will it blend??
  9. The only game I have noticed to be more demanding than Crysis would be Metro 2033.

    I'm curious of these 'many much more demanding' games as well. ;)

    Most people don't realize Crysis came out in '07 and is STILL one of the nicest looking games out.

    Honestly, the only games I've seen match/beat crysis in visuals would be AVP 3 and Metro 2033. Astonishing for a 3 year old game. That's the big deal. :)
  10. I love warhead but even just 2xAA is great on the 46" LCD although my framerate eats it big time...and I'm only playing dx9
  11. Crysis?!? Bah! That's sooo.... last year. We'll see how Crysis 2 does :D

    Oh btw, ARMAII runs worse than Crysis: http://alienbabeltech.com/main/?p=16997&page=16
  12. i saw a dude do a test on utube, he played crysis at 1920x1080 with anti aliasing at x4, it was hardly playable, he took off antialiasing and fps shot up to 40+, the kicker was that evrything looked the same, too lazy to look for the vid, but crysis is just in a league of its own in both stunning graphics and horrible optimization.

    I have AVP3 and the graphics are not that great...maybe equal to FarCry2 on high/Crysis on med-high. Metro 2033 is maybe Crysis at high.


    Crysis with max settings (VH) still beats everything, and Crysis with ultra high GFX mod curb stomps all other game graphics...
  14. At DX 10 1920X1080 on enthusiast I get about 40fps average. The drivers have improved the framerates by a lot and at 16X AA you play at about 10-15fps. I think the cards run out of ram, some program I had showed it at 1022MB used and that probably went over 1024MB. I can't seem to play Crysis right now after I updated to the newest drivers :( .
  15. why cant you just add ram to a gpu, life would be so much easier, but i really wudnt like to see the price of a 1gb module of gddr5

    Ah! Yeah, forgot about arma2. That game is very demanding.

    AVP3 has some pretty deep textures, I'd call AVP3, Metro 2033, and Crysis the top 3 I've seen IMO.

    IMO, I think the Marines/Predators look nice, the vegetation/environments are ok, but the aliens sometimes look like crap... =/
  18. Yeah, the character models are pretty well done, and I agree the foliage and environment doesn't quite match crysis.
