Fire up those expensive video cards -- Crysis demo is coming on September 25

For diehard PC gamers, Crysis is the game that best exemplifies the PC’s technological edge over today’s consoles. In times where developers must consider the lowest common denominator when making a game, Crysis sets itself apart by targeting gamers with the latest computer processors and video cards.

EA and Crytek revealed today on its official Crysis website that a single player demo will be released on September 25 (also the day that Halo 3 hits the Xbox 360). The demo will consist of the entire first level in Crysis’ single player campaign, “Contact,” giving gamers first-hand chance to experience the open-ended level design and a chance to put their PC hardware to the test.

Even with the game’s nearing release, the developers have yet to announce official system requirements. From what the developers have let on, though, it is estimated that the lowest-spec PC that will run Crysis will consist of:

CPU: Athlon 64 3000+/Intel 2.8ghz
Graphics: Nvidia 6600/X800GTO (SM 2.0)
RAM: 768Mb/1Gb on Windows Vista
Internet: 256k+
Optical Drive: DVD
Software: DX9.0c with Windows XP

With the recommended system expected to be:

CPU: Dual-core CPU (Athlon X2/Pentium D)
Graphics: Nvidia 7800GTX/ATI X1800XT (SM 3.0) or DX10 equivalent
RAM: 1.5Gb
Internet: 512k+ (128k+ upstream)
Optical Drive: DVD
Software: DX10 with Windows Vista

Following the completion of the demo, gamers will have a seemingly long wait for the release of the full game. Crysis is set to simultaneously release in retail stores in North America and Europe on November 16, 2007.

bioshock hiccups?

I have a quad core extreme qx6700, a GF 8800 GTX, 4 gigs of Gskill DDR II 800, a raptor 10K 150, and Bioshock gave me some hiccups.

I suggest checking for another problem with your rig then..i ve got an AMD939 4400+ @ 2550Mhz with 2 GB Kingston Hyper-x and a lowly 7900gt 256Mb - the games runs without any slowdowns or hiccups at 1280x1024 on maximum detail, and fine at 1154x864 on my friend's 7900gs...
Though this is XPSP2 with DX9, haven't seen the DX10 version.

Maybe vista might have some issues..just though you might like to know it is probably not that your rig is underspecced.. unless you're running at some crazy res :)

Well... more specifically it was that I had some jaggies with lights in the distance, the water effects didn't look as they did in some of the Bioshock Videos I had seen prior.

Thats what I was reffering to when I said Hiccups.

I do have Vista and it could very well be the problem... though I did download the latest Vista driver Beta for the game.

I set everything at max for Bioshock - I just wasn't that impressed with the game as a whole... it felt too consoley.

Ill wait for UT III and perhaps some COD 4.
