It was the Ultra Shaders that introduced things like the realtime reflections, and particle shadows.
So please, before calling someone ignorant, actually look into this. In fact, download the SDK yourself and actually see for yourself instead of trusting some sub popular website.

Wait, what? You say to research instead of trusting a "sub popular website", when nearly every major review site had commentary on it. Yet you are stating your opinion as fact due to what ONE guy said after "testing" it with his ONE setup? Oh god, please!!!

It isn't a secret that Crysis 2 ran better in SDK than under the actual game executable, that is widely known and accepted. It is also widely known and accepted that Crysis 2 was HEAVILY optimized around Nvidia cards, especially in regard to the Tessellation in the game. AMD users had upwards of a 75% performance hit because of the Tessellation, and simply disabling it provided a huge boost in performance.

So, no, MaLDoHD wasn't the end all be all on the topic. In fact his test only show that on that one configuration, with an Nvidia card, the hit was single to low double digits in performance. He even made a thread on the Crysis forums and was called out on his methods and the lack of broad testing. One user even put his screenshots up of his box running AMD cards in Crossfire and then with an Nvidia card in it, Tessellation both on and off. The performance difference between Tes and No Tes was massive between the two.

We are talking on the AMD side 30 FPS with Tes and over 70 without Tes, that is huge!

A 670 is more than enough to max out this game. If anything, the devs are not doing a good job of optimizing games just because the hardware is available.

To max out the game with ~60FPS in 1080p, yeah, a GTX 670 is enough.

On that note, Guild Wars 2 uses some unknown engine (or a mish-mash of other engines, who knows) and yet it can pull stuff like this:





That's right, real-time reflections of my full character in her gear o_O

And full reflections of all objects...

Barely makes the cut? LOL....what? You're in the "Hi Performance" bracket. thumb.gif

I have a heavily modded Crysis installed on my rig right now, have tried various configs/mods, and the only "HD textures pack" pack available (which isn't even HD) - Rygels, and I while the game can certainly look very pretty at times, I am mostly underwhelmed, especially by the textures which are pretty horrible outside of the vegetated/jungle areas. The game isn't ugly by any means, but it has really begun to show it's age in a lot of spots, which is to be expected considering it's from 2007.

I, too, played in the Crysis 3 MP alpha, and aside from the drab colors in the map which I disliked, I was thoroughly impressed with the level of detail and overall visual fidelity. The latest "The Fields" footage of the game looks pretty incredible.
