Ok folks the news which most gamer wanted to know is out.Crytex has released the recommended system specs required to run the game.
Minimum: 2GHz Core 2 Duo / A64 X2 CPU, 2GB RAM, 8800GT / HD3850, 512MB Video Memory, DX9.0c, Shader Model 3.0, Windows XP, 20fps @ 1024 x 768
Recommended: 2.66GHz Core 2 Duo / A64 X2 CPU, 3GB RAM, GTX280 / HD4870, 1GB Video Memory, DX9.0, Shader Model 3.0/4.0, Windows XP, 30fps @ 1650 x 1080
Highly Recommended: 3GHz Core i7 4GB RAM, GTX560Ti / HD4870 X2, 1.8GB Video Memory, DX11, Shader Model 3.0/4.0, Windows 7, 30fps @ 1920 x 1200
I would say those requirement is quite modest.Considering when the first game came out it was beyond any hardware to max that game. Graphics requirement is sli 560 or crossfire 4870 to play at hd res.But that Vram requirement is quite odd.Only Ati 6900 series has that vram.And remember 30flps in crytex games is very smooth as compared to other games.All thanks to motion blur.So the question can you run Crysis 2?
where does it say the GTX560 in SLI??? it only states it as a single card
FYI. VR-Zone (the source) pulled the article from its site so the authenticity of these specs are 50/50 at best.
It says gtx 560/4870 x2 which i believe means sli 560 or crossfire 4870.4870x2 is more powerful than 560ti.So if they are saying that nvidia user can run it with 560 and ati user needs 4870x2 then that doesn't make sense.
hi i really need to ask something that might help me a lot with my problem with my desktop computer. i'm playing crysis 2 but the rendering is not that smooth. my system specs is dual core e5500 2.8ghz with 4gb 800mhz with asus p5kpl epu MOBO and ATI radeon 5570 HD. Is it going to help me with my problem with rendering of graphics to make it smooth by upgrading my processor with core 2 duo e7500 (
1066 MHz FSB) or i need to upgrade my video card and make it I series processor with ddr3?
Well, both your CPU and video card are holding you back.
If you only have enough money to upgrade one of them, then the video card would be the first choice. Your CPU may bottleneck your newer card if the performance difference between your new card and the HD 5570 is huge.
Your upgrade will be limited by your power supply. So you need to check that 1st. Post a picture of the PSU's sticker label.
