Crysis 3 Low Vs Very High

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Either my eyes are bad or this game suffers severely from ''diminishing returns''.

I don't see that big of a difference between Low and Very High settings. I put everything at Low including texture resolution and no AA and I don't notice that much of a difference when I put it at Very High and 8x MSAA. When I play Tomb Raider, I immediately see the difference between FXAA and 2x SAA. When I play Arkham City, I can tell when I play with FXAA or 8x MSAA. It's a world apart.

Crysis 3, not so much. The game still looks amazing even at Low settings and 2560x1440. The game does look better at Very High but not nearly enough to justify the performance hit. Also, this game runs like trash on my CrossFireX 7950's and i5-3550 3.3GHZ. My FPS sometimes dip below 60fps with everything at Low and no AA and 2560x1440.

I had a GTX Titan and ran the game maxed out minus AA and now I have a GTX 480 running medium settings and the game didn't really change in quality. Still great looking graphics and smooth as butter.

Really weird.

this is really weird stuff; im gonna give it a shot too.

i recall totalbiscuit (youtube personality guy) posting a shot of crysis 3 w/ medium settings on his rig at the time (he's a 60fps or bust guy), & i was embarrassed i couldn't really tell what the heck the difference was from my very high settings. when i get the time in a bit i'll try to take some screencaps & see how much difference you guys can spot b/w low & max, or maybe medium & max since low, at least to me, seems pretty extreme.
