note on 8800gtx cards used
""It goes without saying at this point that Crysis looks amazing. We played on dual-core and quad-core PCs that had a single 8800GTX video card, and the performance was fairly smooth, though there were slight pauses at the beginning of each mission as textures and assets were loaded into the game for the first time. Although we were running machines capable of DirectX 10 graphics, EA and Crytek had us playing the DX 9 version of the game, and it still looked amazing."

Thank goodness :bounce:

Fairly smooth?

I was thinking that as well. Oh well. I don't need uber-high end graphics, although I'm sure the HD2900 Pro OCed to XT clocks will deliver. only bottleneck I can see in my PC is the CPU and RAM. >.>

I'm guessing my X1900XT 512mb will be able to handle it with mid to high settings on my standard 19" LCD monitor.

When I upgrade to a 26" LCD monitor, I'm sure that'll change. I'll probably wait for the next gen DX10 GPUs before I upgrade my video card.

I cannot imagine people with midrange system experiencing this game. There's going to be riot, if it's not optmised well. If it runs "fairly" well on a high end 8800gtx, the majority of the people will just have to settle with mediocre graphic settings. The hype of this game is on the graphics.

Many people may not get the experience that the game was intended to deliver.

While I agree that many will not get to see the game in all its glory, you are looking at it the wrong way. Hardware always gets better over time and eventually most will see the game in full glory when their hardware catches up. This is a good thing not a bad thing.

In the old days software lagged years behind hardware which really sucked. You would have this fantastic/expensive hardware and no software would really make full use of your fancy machine. Now thanks to things like DirectX, well written software can beat affordable hardware to market. FarCry was a system killer when it first came out. Now I can run FarCry maxed out at full native res running FSAA and all options turned up. Crysis is following in FarCry's footsteps, which is a good thing. It will be playable a lower settings for most of us and as we upgrade the game will look better and better. This makes the game more "future proof".
