The code will probably get optimized, the HD textures hopefully get added and actually useful tessellation.
I mean, what was I doing seeing Tessellation on the ground in Crysis 2 -_-
And it was EVERYwhere!
Hopefully the maps are open like Crysis 1 aswell or CPU stress will most likely be minimal.
Well the 8800GT was top of the line when crysis 1 was released and 7970 is top right now so crytek better make them crawl.
HD6850 should run high settings at 40fps but I'd be happy if crysis 3 required at least an HD7970 to get 60fps at max setting

I had to overclock my HD3650 to hell just to run it at medium. Even after upgrading to a 9800GT I still couldnt max it with playable fps.
Although Its a bad idea for the pc version to be dx11 only.
There are still a lot of people running GTX280s and HD4870s
