My God.

Welp. Most of what I read on here is true. This game eats high end graphics cards for breakfast and craps out their cooling fans.

These are my specs:

i5 3570k
MSI GTX 680 afterburner
16 GB corsair vengeance 1866 ram

... Cranked everything up to max on DX11 and got 15-24 fps. This is on a 1080p monitor... I would hate to see someone that has a 1440 or 1600p try to run this on max with a single card or God forbid a triple monitor setup... a single 680 would explode under those conditions.

Far Cry 3 is the ONLY game that I have had to turn down settings down 1-2 notches to be playable. Right now almost everything is either on high or very high (nothing on ultra) and the MSAA is turned down to 2 and I am still only getting 40-55 fps.

If this is going to be the trend with most newer games, it looks like I will be SLI'ing this rig sooner than I thought.

What would it take to run this on true max (DX11 with ALL settings ultra'd out) @ 60fps? Has anyone here accomplished that feat and if so did your rig burst into flames? post your stories below.

i7 950
evga gtx 670 sc 4gb
8gb

With everything on ultra and msaa at 8, I only manage to get 30fps. It's not a smooth 30fps so I turn the settings down a bit and get a kinda smooth 60fps. It still tends to drop into the low 40s when stuff gets intensive though.

Cryengine is an infamous resource hog on high settings.

The original Crysis is notorious in that in some circles it's basically a benchmarking program, not a game.

Nominally it's a "high consumption, high reward" situation where it's capable of incredible things, so it's more that it's capable of using all the power you can throw at it.

Grand Theft Auto IV with the ENB graphic mods is the closest a game has ever come to overheating my pc.

it brought my I5 2500k to 95 degrees when it was on stock cooling. Before that, the highest I had seen it get was in the 70s.

I have a GTX 560ti and I play everything on High I believe, and it runs completely fine. If I ultra everything I have like 15 fps, but you don't have to max everything.

You will seriously regret that. Most people with Crossfire/SLI are complaining of terrible micro-stuttering and are switching over to only using one of their cards, which will likely also become a trend. You will likely just end up spending a lot of money on something you won't even use.

Only SLI 680 able to run this game on 70fps 1080p max graphic. Single 680 config will suffer below 50fps.

This game doesn't use Cryengine, though.

i7 860
gtx 680 2GB
8GB RAM

Everything on max (with HBAO) at 1920x1080 (except MSAA at 2x and PostFX at Medium)

Get a consistent 60 fps.

Turn down PostFX, I see no visual difference between ultra and medium, but there is a big performance hit. MSAA for me at 2x is enough. I never really go beyond 2x AA on most of my games for performance reasons.

Looks great

And if you hear as the warm night falls. The silver sound from a time so strange. Sing to me, sing to me.

CryEngine belongs to Crytek. Ubisoft didn't licensed the use of that engine, FC3 instead uses Dunia 2 engine, a successor to Dunia engine from Far Cry 2.
