Crysis Hardware Experiment by Crytek
Posted by: GameBorder Staff on 2008-01-15 11:33:58
On their website Crytek guys have offered recommendations on required spec to play Crysis on High settings.
"Over Christmas we took the time for a little in-house experiment. With only a limited budget of around US $900 we wanted to set up a brand new machine that can handle Crysis on High settings. We should note that Very High settings are reserved to keep Crysis future-proofed, just like Ultra was in Far Cry.
Together with EA we looked in shops around the world and bought the hardware parts to put together our machine starting from scratch. While we had a budget in mind, we wanted to still make sure this machine would have top-notch hardware such as a multicore processor or a DirectX10 graphics card.
Below you find a rough list of parts we purchased so you can see and check for yourself about the total costs of such a high-end computer. The prices may vary from country to country, but overall the costs should be within the same range (shipping included).
CPU: Intel Core2Duo E6750
GPU: GeForce 8800GT 512MB
Motherboard: NVIDIA nForce 650i Socket 775
PSU: 600W ATX12V
RAM: 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit
HDD: SATA 250GB 7200RPM
DVD: 20x DVD±R Burner
Case: ATX Midi Tower Computer Case
OS: Microsoft Windows XP Home with SP2
With this experiment we have shown that Crysis runs smoothly and provides and amazing, unparalleled performance on High settings and on an affordable machine that is readily available today.
We know most of you already have a great base to work with, so compare your current hardware with the setup mentioned above and consider an affordable upgrade - you do not have to purchase a new machine. Crysis is very scalable and looks great on Medium settings compared to current next-gen games. "
