Bubbles12 January 25, 2013 4:12:53 PM Would you consider Far Cry 3 a CPU intensive game? It's quite laggy on my system. bwrlane a b à CPUs January 25, 2013 4:20:19 PM No, FC3 is a GPU intensive game. Cpu intensive games are mostly multi-player online games. At the wrong settings, FC3 will lag on just about any system. I have SLI GTX 680s and still turn some settings down to run smoothly. GTX 580 is fine. It's just a question of experimenting with the graphics settings until you find the ones that allow your system to run it smoothly. ASHISH65 a b à CPUs a b å Intel January 25, 2013 4:22:44 PM Yes i think so far cry is demanding game though untill i have not played it but also crysis 3 will be most demanding game ever.
