Crysis at 2560x1600 with 2 NVIDIA GeForce GTX 280 in SLI

250°
323w ago - When NVIDIA's new GeForce GTX 280 hits e-tailers next week, gamers who are running 30 inch displays with a 2560x1600 resolution, will finally be able to play Crysis with a solid framerate.

In order to do so it will require 2 GeForce GTX 280 video cards running in SLI. As for the many PC gamers who own 24" displays (1920x1200 resolution), just one GeForce GTX 280 should suffice for smooth gameplay, but don't expect to be able to crank all of the settings.

Although this is happy news to finally be able to play Crysis with high resolutions and high FPS, I can't help but wonder why it still requires more than the best of the best to play with settings on max.

Poor game programming? Lame video drivers? Weak GPUs? Now that the patches for Crysis have come to end...will we ever know? Truly it is baffling to me that even with my Quad SLI setup I only average around 45 FPS with my 1920x1080 resolution. Every other game I play with this setup can run perfectly, but that has not been the case with Crysis.

Next week I should be getting a couple of GeForce GTX 280 cards for testing and personal use. Hopefully the results will be fantastic.

324w ago - EA and Crytek today announced Crysis Warhead, the Parallel story to Crysis. Shipping exclusively for the PC this fall, Crysis Warhead is the first title to be developed at Crytek's Budapest studio, and is built on a new, enhanced and optimized version of Crytek's CryENGINE 2 technology.

Cevat Yerli, CEO and President of Crytek. "That being said, one of the key principles of our studio is to always raise the bar. With Warhead, we are focusing on refining our storytelling and game performance, while also delivering more of the visually stunning graphics and immersive, free-roaming gameplay everyone loved in Crysis."

"The best result of a partnership that we can ask for in the EA Partners program is when a world class independent studio like Crytek chooses to continue to work with us," said David DeMartini, Vice President and Global General Manager, EA Partners.

"Crysis was an amazing game and is going to be a blockbuster franchise. We could not be more excited to be working with Crytek to launch another hit with Crysis Warhead this year."

In Crysis Warhead, players will don the Nanosuit of Sergeant Sykes, also known as 'Psycho', one of the most memorable characters from Crysis. More brash and aggressive than his Delta Force squadmate Nomad, players...

Crytek to Premier CryEngine 2 on the PS3 At GDC 2008

343w ago - Frankfurt-based developer Crytek (Far Cry, Crysis) has announced that it will be making the debut of a cross-platform version of its CryEngine 2 at this year's GDC, with a demonstration version running on the PS3 and Xbox 360.

Crytek first debuted CryEngine 2 technology at the 2007 GDC, later releasing Crysis with Electronic Arts, the first title to utilize the engine. This year, Crytek is taking appointments to see the console versions of the engine.

Crytek will also be doing public demonstrations showing how its notoriously spec-heavy technology can be run on "a budget PC which can be put together for around 600 dollars complete, including keyboard and mouse," as well as demonstrations with licensees, including architectural and serious games companies.

The company notes that anyone wishing to make an appointment for a cross platform demonstration can do so by emailing gdc2008@crytek.com with details of their own company, or by visiting the developer's GDC show floor booth.

343w ago - If you think your PC has the balls to run Crysis at its very highest settings, then there's a small article over at Planet Crysis that you should read.

Okay, when I say "very highest", I'm not talking about moving all the in-game sliders to the far right. To see what pain Crytek's shooter is truly capable of dishing out on your humble PC, you'll need to dive into the game's configuration files and tweak a few settings.

The Planet Crysis article has everything you need to know, but if you're not as well endowed in the sack department as your machine is, there's a download of the altered files available from Crymod.

You may have seen similar settings floating around the Internet; these are the most up-to-date.

If you haven't already, you might want to tweak Crysis first to get it running at its best performance-wise, or if you're running Windows XP, enable those lauded Direct3D 10 "Vista-only" features
