Crysis 3 PC system requirements confirmed

PCnauts have become pretty complacent about system requirements of multiplatform games, knowing even a modest gaming PC is faster than the consoles so they should be fine. Crysis 3 is a little less forgiving. The system requirements are confirmed, so you may want to start eying an upgrade if you fancy playing Crytek's super-suit shooter with all the bells and whistles on.

      My radeon 5770... It's been a good run but our time together is coming to an end.

        I retired mine a few months back. I have no hard feelings toward the card as it served me well but with today's quiet and less power thirsty cards I promise you won't miss that 5770.

      Hmmm --> 8GB Memory for the high, looks like a x64 exe is in then, this is very nice.

        I feel like even my 1gb version will be due for upgrading fairly soon. If I had money, maybe even nowish.

      Looks like the days of playing games at 2560x1600 with a single 680gtx is coming to an end.

      It's lame that it requires DX11 when they're putting out an Xbox360 version, which is based on DX9.

        Crysis 2 was released as a no-frills port with DX9 and everyone complained. They patched in stuff later but the damage was done.

        Clearly Crytek is not about to make a similar mistake with Part 3. They're going all out.

      The requirements dont really seem any higher than any other aaa title to come out lately other than the dx11 requirement
