    Can it run Crysis??

    TH decided to test Crysis on hardware from the last decade as it was the 10th anniversary of the game being released:

    http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/...arks,5329.html

    Wow,it still can push hardware even now.

    I only recently started playing Crysis 1, so am dead happy with my settings.

    Re: Can it run Crysis??

    So if you want to play Crysis on Very High at 4k you need a 1080ti to sustain 60fps. Wow.

    I know it's still a good looking game, but I wonder how much of the performance is down to optimization?

    i never quite fell in love with Crysis... but a great idea to bench modern kit against it

    Re: Can it run Crysis??

    I've always quite liked Crysis, and I remember having to apply a lot of tweaks to get it to even run and look half decent at the same time; Warhead seemed alot better optimised though. It is scary to think that it has been 10 years now... where have those years gone? :/

    Re: Can it run Crysis??

    I can't believe Crysis is still a struggle for most hardware. Surely like Bagnaj97 said it's down to poor optimisation. Or has hardware just not moved on that far in 10 years?

    hardware has moved enormously...

    but that game can be tweaked to the monster resolutions that we now have.

    I think it was Doom3 that first came out with an Ultra mode that was designed to be unplayable on existing hardware as it expected more VRAM than was available on any existing hardware. Seems an odd thing to do when most games have a shelf life measured in weeks, but perhaps it generates a few sales down the line.

    Re: Can it run Crysis??

    Friend of mine loaded it up last night to see...

    i7 5960x@ 4.6, 16GB 3200Mhz corsair Dom Plat, Asus RE10, Titan XP, 960 Pro, SF 1200W, all WC'd with a stack of rads, running on an Asus ultrawide monitor.
    Game was stuttery as heck and using a lot of CPU resources, dropping as low as 25fps.

    There's a slider of some kind in the settings. Dropped that right down and things improved, but still not amazing. We're currently mucking about trying to figure what the main cause is.

    The game only taxes one,maybe two cores.

    What version of the game does your mate run?? The Steam one?? The Origin one?? Or the GOG one??

    That would make a lot of sense. If it were multi-threaded I guess we'd see a much larger improvement.

    It sounds like it's scaled pretty well, it was 7.5fps on an 8800 Ultra cranked up to maximum in 1920x1200 at release:

    I love the fact that every other card couldn't run it!
