Default Crysys question

Anyone know if crysys supports multithreading? Ive just put together a dual quad core for work purposes and figured Id see how it handles Crysys. Might as well check out if this visual marvel would run well on my new machine.

I believed they patched it.

I think when it released it wasn't fully compatible, or it had some errors. I know out of the gate Crysis just wasn't very "scalable".

Anyway...I would direct you to Hardocp.com. However, it seems to be going slow tonight. Perhaps, my connection just sucks. I'd try to check there.

What kind of video card(s) did you get for your "work" computer? Also, how much ram are you running and what exact processor did you get?

Warhead probably supports multithreading and is quite scalable now. I wish they would go back and update Crysis to take advantage of all that they learned making Warhead.

IMO you'll run Crysis just fine.

9800gt, man that thing is supposed to be a beast. Cards like that will be great to sli in a year or two when they come down in price. I have an 8800gt and that thing, on it's own, is a destroyer on most games - can't imagine what yours will look like

Sorry to bring back an old thread but I purchased Crysis and played a good chunk. I can put most of the settings to Very High (except shadows) without it becoming a slideshow.

The game is a lot of fun so far. The stealth mechanics are interesting. However I have to state something... I'm not convinced it looks better then Killzone 2.

I mean Crysis does have incredible draw distances and the facial animations (especially lip synching) are better on Crysis, but beyond that, I was as blown away as I thought I'd be. Anyone else think this?

I have a sneaky suspicion that your opinion will be unpopular with most (especially the PC gamers) although you will gain support with the PS3 crowd.

I personally don't find this surprising - see RedRed and my disagreement with the quality of the facial animation in Half-Life 2. I didn't play it when it came out, so I can only really compare to what I expect of today. You're playing a game that is universally known as the best game graphically ever (or pretty much), but you're playing quite a while after the hype
