[Discussion] Crysis 3's Lack of DX10 - Page 3

post #21 of 28
I believe EA/Dice did the same thing with BF3...Doesn't it require a DX 11 card to play as well?

I think BF3 was a DX10/11 no DX9, but I could be wrong!

I think you'd be hard-pressed to distinguish between low and very high.

i only see relatively minor (won't be noticable when actually playing) changes mostly to the shadows. displacement mapping on the water reservoir and penumbra shadows. that's it. not worth the drop to 41 fps from 90 fps

over 56% of steam users have DX11 card; it is increasing. Crytek is simply trying to catapult that trend. plus Crysis has always been known to stress hardware anyway so cheap dudes who fear upgrades should stay away from it.

no BF3 was the first high-profile game to drop DX9 and WinXP support and run DX10/11 only.

Nope, i kinda like it to be honest, people can spend 500 to 800 euros/dollars on smart phones and can't pay 300 for a decent gfx (but i do feel sorry for the people who cant buy one, anyway Crysis 3 doesn't seem all that hot to me and i bought every single Crysis title until C3)?

I feel the same way. I played first Crysis again yesterday with a few mods, and it still looks pretty damn good compared to Crysis 3! That game was sure ahead of it's time , which can't be said for C3!

That is interesting, looking at High vs VHigh, I can see a difference in SSAO, SSDO, some shaders, but it very negligible.

You say "cheap people" but what about people with 2 or 3 GTX295's in sli, thats almost $2000 in video cards, and not all that long ago. 295's will run current games well over 60fps on max. and if dx11 was able to be used on those cards they would still max the game out at good frame rate. I would hardly call someone with that kinda system cheap. and for somone with tri gtx295's would see little gaming improvement upgrading that system as they are still ranked very powerful cards.

I am lucky enough to have a system that can run Crysis 3 but I can understand the frustration for people that have rig's that play current games at great frame rates/high-max settings

You can't SLI 3 295s...

and scaling on those older cards is terrible. You could certainly see a nice performance boost with a newer card.
