    Crysis DX9/10 - Low/Med/High Comparisons

    DX9/10 Comparisons here

    Low/Med/High/Very High Comparisons here

    Earth, 2019: A colossal asteroid crashes down to Earth.

    The North Korean Government quickly seals off the island chain, claiming the mysteries of the asteroid for themselves. The United States responds by dispatching an elite team of Delta Force Operators to recon the situation and report back to the Pentagon. Amid rising tensions between the US and North Koreans, the asteroid suddenly bursts open, revealing a massive, 2km high alien ship. The ship generates an immense force sphere, freezing a vast portion of the island and drastically altering the global weather system. The invasion of Earth has begun.
    So glad that i have dx10 ready and waiting for this game, hope that i can play on very high! Although i would still play on low with dx9 if i absolutely had to! Cant wait !!

    the worry is whether or not the DX9 version is purposefully crippled to make the DX10 version look better in comparison....

    Re: Crysis DX9/10 - Low/Med/High Comparisons

    /\ yeh i agree theres some things there that are in the dx10 screens but not in dx9 like trees in the distance for example why should these be effected? It seems like some things that are supported in dx10 are just removed in the dx9 to make it look even more bland.

    All i can say is i hope a dx10 hack is available for xp cause i sure as hell am not installing that heap of crap vista.

    To be honest playing the beta at the moment on DX9 and it looks lush enough to my eyes.


    /edit - also I'm not worried about DX10 because Vista is going nowhere near my rig for a long, long time yet!

    This had better perform on vista - I've bought a new q6600 box for the forthcoming DX10 titles and will venture into the Vista world and I demand satisfaction...

    Looks like it - those screenshots are actually putting me off from buying it under dx9. No way am I getting Vista (and dx10 card) just for this game.

    I expected better for the dx9 path to be honest.

    Re: Crysis DX9/10 - Low/Med/High Comparisons

    Good grief - why doesn't that site give some way to hop between the low/med/high/v high screens. Some sites are just so badly thought out.

    That first screenie looks marvellous on DX10, but I share the view that it doesn't make sense for DX9 to be that different in terms of objects. Hmm. I'm not buying a new graphics card until I want a DX10 one, and that will be without Vista if possible or a long time away yet...

    Re: Crysis DX9/10 - Low/Med/High Comparisons

    All the whines about the DX10 stuff possible on DX9 codepath, why should they bother if it doesn't make logical sense? If the performance of the stuff they have on DX10 in DX9 would be unplayable, then there is no point them spending the time to add it and optimize for it .

    How I see it is, the DX10 for the most part that we experience will look the same as DX9. Only when you crank up the options to the max in DX10 (which i'll guess is unplayable frame rates on 8800/2900 anyway) will it look like those DX10 screenies - and that will be playable on the next gen of DX10 hardware.

    Now, i'll be a black sheep here and say, I think Vista is a great achievement by Microsoft. They've just been bent over a table by bad 3rd party driver support, leading to, for the consumer, a mediocre platform. As for the RAM usage of Vista - I also think that is good - it's pushing us towards 64bit computing; something that imo should already be mainstream, if (again) it were not for poor 64bit drivers from 3rd parties giving the end-user a poor experience with it. The one dig with Vista I have though, is needing signed drivers on 64bit (why? ), or having to set it at every boot if not.

    Now, i'll go get my asbestos coat .

    Re: Crysis DX9/10 - Low/Med/High Comparisons

    Thank you so much for these links This is the exact type of comparisson I want to see for EVERY game (even long before DX10). I am always keen to know the difference between low/medium/high etc.

    And yeah, the difference between DX9 and DX10 here looks pretty significant to me. DX9 looks like great graphics in a game. DX10 looks like a photograph...

    This has changed my mind on a few things. I'm definitely going to have Vista and DX10 in time for this game. I'm going to just put it on a different partition.

    The difference is pretty big, and the dx10 screenies actually make me want Vista a little!

    I'm going to wait to see performance numbers though before I shell out the hard earned.

    wait and see is good - because i think none of the hardware has caught up to using dx10 in vista "practically" (i.e. playing games, etc) yet...

    we need the next gen hardware (hybrid drives, new gpu chipsets etc)...
