Can I max out Crysis 3 on GTX 560 Ti? or will GTX 660 Ti do the job?

More about : gtx 560 crysis

You probably can't max it at 1080p, but doesn't mean it won't look good at lower settings. Based on the requirements released, high performance setting require at least a 680 or 7970 if I'm not mistaken.

probably not for a 560Ti, for 660Ti maybe high settings, but it also depends on how well their engine is :) 

and of course 660ti is faster, and so a better bet

No where near maxing it at 1080p. A 680 can barely do maxed on crysis 2 so not much hope for crysis 3

The guru 3d is much more realistic but a solid 60 is tough to maintain. Realistically your looking at lower than that and considering how much more is packed into crysis 3 I don't think any current single GPU will manage.

Hmm interesting. Crysis 3 is going to be sick when it comes out and im thinking bout upgrading my gpu when both camps start dropping

If you can play BF3 on Ultra, you can probably play Crysis 3 at high (or close to it)

Completely different engines. Frostbite 2 (in my opinion) is much better optimized for how it looks.

damn i feel silly just reading this thread!
people are so confident about a card's performance on a game that isn't even out yet!!

@mycutefairy how can u expect anyone to answer that question perfectly??

it is not about the visuals anymore!!
look at far cry3 it is not that good to look at(atleast for a 2012 pc game)
and yet it is VERY demanding!!
and then look at witcher 2 or BF3 they look AWESOME!! even a gtx650ti can max it at 30FPS on 1080p!
and 560ti is superior to 650 ti
it all depends on how well the game is optimized, right??
and NO one knows how well an unreleased game is optimized or how good the engine is right?

just wait till the game is out and find out for yourself if u can max it out,

and 560ti is a really good card for 1080p dosent matter WHAT people say

Not expecting a perfect answer, just looking for opinions basing on the previous GPU recommendations ( and performance) on Crysis...People might have an Idea how Video cards would perform on this game already. Thanks for the input though

Except there was an alpha. There were people like me who PLAYED the alpha on very high end hardware and spent a decent amount of time on the alpha forums discussing performance to get an idea how different cards were performing.

Yes, there will be driver updates to improve performance, but this game is running on an established engine... if you expect a miracle, you'll probably be disappointed.

I was getting 40-45fps average maxed 1080p on a single 1200/1800 MHz 7970, which is around twice as powerful as a 560ti (which is a low-midrange card now....) . You do the math. If you can handle fps dips into the 20s it may be playable maxed out for you @ 16x9, I guess...



Nice

well ofcourse,
without drivers what else do u expect??
it will take some driver releases but i still think that a 560ti will be able to max it on 1600x900 it wont be the next day of launch but a few drivers later it will.
ALL the games need drivers, to perform good even the 7970 needs it.
and do u really think 7970 wont get a lot more FPS than 45 on 1080p after some drivers are released?
what i'm saying is u cant say how well it will optimised at launch time or how soon the driers are released, so cant be sure

Bigz bro do you think the final will be better optimized or should we expect the same performance

and for the orignal question all i can say is:
u wont be able to max it on the day of launch,
but u will definately be able to max it sometime, i'm sure of this
it all depends on how fast the drivers are released

ofcourse it will better optimised,
NO game has performed the same at launch day or in demo oir alpha version
and the same after a few months or weeks, the performance will be a lot better than the alpha version

nice decision,
another thing i'd like to add,
if i were u i would just skip the 700 series too and replace the 560ti with a 800 series card.
maxwell is supposed be a LOT better than kepler!!
and would be awesome once it comes out

I'm sure a 560ti will do fine in Crysis 3 once there have been proper optimizations to the game and drivers. I ran the Alpha on my GTX 670 at around 40-45 at 1080p so the 560ti would probably get around 30-35, not entirely accurate but we can't really tell until the game comes out in February.

Since it's running on an established engine, I'd expect 10-20% performance boost from optimization. All any of us can do is guess about that, of course.

I think the people expecting a major performance increase are crazy, though.

did u forget witcher 2?
it performed really bad when it came out,
but after the first patch was released it was a lot more better.
i'm not saying we will see very HUGE performance increases but it is but a small possibility.
sometimes i think that they might not optimize it knowingly so that the game is "DEMANDING" just like pc gamers wanted!!

The Witcher 2 is still a very demanding title. Even a GTX680 can't max it at 1080p.

And I hate to break it to you but AA is just an additional/extra feature that should be lowered or disabled first to get playable framerates. Most people will run 4xAA only so I don't see the big issue here

the word "max" being casually/wrongfully used is the issue. like what you did sir. not trying to start a flamewar here but for all intents and purposes, that 560ti nor a 680 won't run crysis 1/2/3 maxed out properly.

all "graphic options" are extra additional features, disabling one obviously contradicts the term "maxed out".

I'm on Ezio's side here.

I count ultra as maxed. Not many people would run 8xAA or higher. If the ultra preset includes AA then that would be different.

I didn't read ALL of the post so I don't know if any body suggested it yet, but I think 2 560 Ti's in SLI will just about run it on max.

To be fair, ubersampling is an unstable buggy mess even when you have the GPU power to enable it... it's really not worth the hassle.

Reminds me of enabling the broken but GPU-sucking DOF filter in Metro 2033.

Very nice setup now, BTW - loving that 4MP monitor?

@mycutefairy, I played the Crysis 3 alpha too, and I did just fine at 900p with my over clocked hd6870. Granted, I left the settings mostly at High vs Very High (different than Crysis 2 settings, btw - Very High is the highest), and I have a feeling I could've averaged about 35 fps at VH in single-player, since it would be less of a load on my CPU than a 14-16 player match.

That's because TW2 was on a new engine. Games that get released running on new or heavily modified engines typically need more driver/game optimization to perform OK.

Crysis 3 is NOT a new engine... it's an established engine... I think it's a fairly different case.

yeah i guess u r right and there wont be HUGE changes,
but if so then crysis 3 better look a LOT better than the 360 version,
or else i will just buy the disc and then pee on it

Lol, go watch the YouTube videos: http://www.youtube.com/user/Crysis?feature=watch
All in-game, and looks like played in 1080p.

@BigMack - I can't wait til that res and quality penetrate the sub-$200 market. I totally agree with the High vs. Very High in the Alpha - all I could see was slightly further draw distance and more water effects. Tessellation and POM were not enabled. Or maybe everything was UberTessellated, but there was no displacement mapping applied! MILLIONS OF POINTLESS TRIANGLES!!! Like in Crysis 2 ;-)

Woooooo! Hope someone buys this for me, I am not dropping full-price on it next month - I don't care how excited I am. :p  Because of Steam, I've never paid more than $20 for a PC game.

One thing I'm super-grateful for, there's an option to toggle the aiming reticle. Turning that off makes the game about 3x as immersive for me :)
