Updated Crysis Minimum/Suggested Specs

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Crysis-Online posted some updated minimum and suggested system specs you'll need to run Crysis that were given to them by one of the Crytek developers. Keep in mind they aren't official (the game is still being optimized and stuff) but it should give you a good idea if you can actually play the game on your gaming rig.

The minimum specs aren't too nasty; the only REALLY BIG sticking point is the Graphics Card Requirement. And also the suggested specs are pretty beefy though...

Crysis will no doubt be a fairly demanding game. It will require a good system to perform well. However, CryEngine2 is very scalable so lower end machines will still stand a chance.

Here is a list of confirmed information...

- Crysis will run on both DX9 & DX10 as well as Windows XP and Windows Vista.
- A graphics card that supports Shader Model 2 or higher is required.
- CryEngine2 is estimated to scale back 2 years, and scale ahead 1.5 years.
- A single 7800GTX will run the game quite well on fairly high settings according to Crysis Art Director, Michael Khaimzon.
- Crysis will dynamically utilize all processing threads available. Meaning quad-core processors will be supported.

The following specs are estimates made by myself based on the above mentioned information and other sources. These estimates are NOT official - but are based on official information.

Minimum Requirements
CPU: Athlon 64 3000+/Intel 2.8 GHz
Graphics: Nvidia 6200 or ATI X1300 - Shader Model 2.0
RAM: 768MB on Windows XP or 1GB on Windows Vista
HDD: 6GB
Internet: 256k+
Optical Drive: DVD
Software: DX9.0c with Windows XP

Recommended Requirements
CPU: Dual-core CPU (Athlon X2/Pentium D)
Graphics: Nvidia 7600GT or ATI X1800GTO (SM 3.0) or DX10 equivalent
RAM: 1.5GB+
HDD: 6GB
Internet: 512k+ (128k+ upstream)
Optical Drive: DVD
Software: DX9.0c with Windows XP

Once again, these are estimates only and are no way official. I just want to make sure that is clear. However, if you have a graphics card similar in performance to, or better than a 7800GTX, then expect to play Crysis quite nicely (presuming your other system specs are up to scratch).

I will update this page as more accurate information becomes available. Until then, this is the best reference available. If you have information that may be more accurate than this, please contact me via the enquiry contact form.

The crysis picture is perfect taking out the grass.......
That's scary!
You're gonna need atleast a 2.8ghz PIV.
That leaves alota folks out.

I'd be amazed if CryEngine2 looks better than Half-life 2 on _my_ box...it seems like everytime they release a game (after hl2), the graphics quality on a 6600gt decreases

Eh. I think they may have to set it higher, maybe a midrange 8-series (for recommended system specs)

Why? This game runs both DX9 and 10 so either way it would work. They are running it on current gen hardware so I see no reason to have really high end specs to run the game.

plus, they actually want to....sell games. If you have to have an 8 series or some form or the R600, no one will buy the game.... too expensive to upgrade; 5-6 hundred dollars to play the game?
