Crysis demo released; gamers lament the weakness of their PC hardware
Gamers who recently spent a considerable sum of money on a high-end video card will finally find that their piece of hardware is no longer overkill. That’s right, the
single-player demo is here as
promised by the developers
late last month.
The demo was originally set for
release on September 25
, but developer Crytek decided to push the public debut date back a month in the interest of quality. The retail date of November 16 still appears to be on-track.
“We are taking some extra time to make sure you that you have an amazing experience but also we did not want to risk the release date of
at this stage,” Cevat Yerli, CEO of Crytek, explained regarding the delay. “To get the game into your hands by November the 16th, we had to make this call.”
The demo may be downloaded directly from an
EA Canada web server
. The 1.77GB download includes the entire first level and the CryEngine 2 - Sandbox 2 game editor, giving the community an opportunity to get familiar with the tools before the retail game ships.
As should be well known by now,
is the most hardware-demanding game to ship this year. Those who are interested in diving into the demo should
read the official system requirements and recommendations

RE: 25 Fps average on my setup..

I have a Freezer Pro 7. I found it for like $22 shipped so I couldn't resist. I used the TIM included with the cooler after reading a really positive review of their TIM. The memory is a Crucial Ballistix Kit of 2x1GB BL128664AA804.
Bios version date 9/06/2007 version 1BC14. I used the FlashMenu program to update it. I usually use a floppy but this program worked great to update the BIOS thru windows.
Believe it or not I'm using uGuru program to OC. I used to only go through the BIOS since an windows OCing was unstable but I haven't had a single problem with it. I've ran 2 instances of Prime 95 for an hour and gamed with BioShock and ETQW for hours and hours even while encoding video, probably not the most thorough testing but I've been having 2 much fun using the PC to mess with it. Plus, you can set up profiles with uGuru! Anyway I setup OC Guru profile USER2 with these settings ExtClk 334 PCIEClk 100 VCORE 1.2875 MCH 1.37 CPUVTT 1.20 ICH 1.12 CPUGTLREF 1&3 67% DDR2 2.00 ICHIO 1.6 DDR2REF 0% CPUGTLREF 0&2 67%. It automatically runs the memory at DDR1000 when I enable the OC, I've checked the memspeed through CPUz. Oh, and I set Fan EQ through uGuru to kick in to 100% fan speed at 44c.
Oh, and you need version uGuru v3105. v3104 would NOT load on my system. If you have that problem list ur email here and I will email it to you. I found it on a forum where someone found it elsewhere that ABIT's site only lists v3104 as latest but that POS would not load. But I can't find the forum I found it on to give you a link.
