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.
