Can't believe I could break into the double-digit framerate with these settings. tongue.gif

(Very high, TXAA, 2160x1350)

 

With my normal settings, it doesn't run super well. Or, at least, it doesn't run consistently well. Running at High, at 1440x900 I get a fairly constant 30FPS, but it sure like to dip pretty low. Kind of annoying since a lot of benchmarks showed, on my card, it could run at 1080p, 4xAA, and maintain a more constant 30FPS. My CPU must be bottlenecking.

It's funny because 690s can't even max out crysis 3.  Too bad, you know how much better crysis 2 and 3 would be if they never went to consoles. I get get a free copy of crysis 3 when I buy my 7970... Why even bother? So I can get a steady 30 fps at lower settings?

post #1099 of 6598

I've always wondered, is Crysis really that advanced or is it just poorly made? 

post #1100 of 6598

My GTX 670 does 60fps (most of the time), at high settings with minimal anti-aliasing. I'm running at medium though so I can up the AA.... to 2x. Any more, and it drops to 30FPS.  A GTX 690 could probably max it, or come close I would think.

 

And the game actually looks really good even at medium settings.

The first Crysis is extremely poorly made. Crysis 2 and 3 are actually fairly optimized, from my experience.

 

Here's a screen of the first Crysis running at max settings, 2160x1350, 8xAA.

 

 

In my opinion it doesn't look all that great, and consider how it looks, it should be running way higher than the 12FPS I was getting.

I actually checked out how it looks on low, and even still, it looks really, really good.

It isnt optomized to todays standards

But crysis 1 was the best graphics in 2006 and so poor optomization is expected

Decided to drag the ol' 'pooter into the living room and see if I could get higher resolution supersampling on the TV and...

 

 

 

 

Success! 2880x1620, over twice the resolution of 1080p. And it runs at like 40FPS.

 

Didn't bother doing Crysis 3, just because I didn't want to get used to it looking that good.tongue.gif

post #1104 of 6598

I should try doing that...

 

At least on my laptop, there would be some problems that would arise from creating custom profiles for some higher resolutions (2560x1400 or 2560x1600).

I don't think I would ever voluntarily move my PC, I think it weighs at least 15kg. It was enough of a pain moving it two feet to refit the cooling.

Mine weighs a ton alsobiggrin.gif

Yeah, steel case + watercooling really ramps the weight up!

You've never taken a 19" CRT to a LAN party then... with a FULL 6 bay tower to boot... tongue_smile.gif

I've got a big ass Lian-Li juuuuuust before they started putting wheels on their top of the line cases.

 

It's been six or seven years and I've got great use out of it, but something tells me I won't need to upgrade for another decade (okay, maaaaaybe I'd like USB 3 at the front). tongue.gif
