Crysis - very high - Page 3

post #21 of 37
OC the quad, OC the GTX, and get vista 64. You probably will only bebale to play it on High (not very high) if you lower your res, and when you get that 30 inch I would suggest getting a 9800GX2 (or 9900GX2 if its out and much better) and keep your current mobo, unless you want to upgrade that too, then you might be fine with SLI.

Hmm, this guy on Youtube had pretty nice FPS on Crysis with x4 AA and all settings maxed with 3 9800GTX...
It was like 33fps or something
(It was the flyby benchmark thing)
Anyways, I guess you should expect less, so it's reasonable.
You'll get better results if you set it to high, not very high though.
Which is what I recommend seeing as it's not that much of a difference.

1) Overclocking the quad up to at least around 3.0GHz is not a bad idea. I doubt it'll do that much (unlike what many here are saying) at the FPS's you're talking about here, but at least it takes that issue 'out of the equation'. I would run a 'before and after' on the assault_harbor test, with all the same settings you like to run the game at, just to see if the overclock makes any difference.
2) Dropping the shaders down to medium doesn't change the look *that* much, and it can really help quite a bit in the FPS dept. Motion blur off doesn't hurt, and med-high shadows would be the next thing to try after these. You might also try dropping physics to med or high, that one is mostly cpu-driven.
3) Are you overclocking the gpu's? It's not usually too hard to eek out some sizable perf gains on the 8800GTX, the gains tend to correspond nicely with the overclock (i.e. 10% OC = 10%+FPS)

I wouldnt expect a huge performance gain with the CPU when overclocked, but I would still do it. I replaced my Q6700 that was at 3.5 ghz to a Q9300 that has not been overclocked yet. Crysis ran almost the same; not too big of a difference, maybe like 10 FPS. If your really pissed, do the very High DX9 hack. It looks very similar, but the performance gains are huge.

Which driver do you use? You need to use at least 174 series to have full SLI functionality. What is your 3DMark score? Are u sure you have SLI enabled? I don't think it is like this because of only CPU bottleneck, there must another thing like driver, power etc.

Running an E8400 at 4.1GHZ, 1 8800GTX at 600/1450/920 *retail superclocked speeds* Vista 64, and was on 4GB RAM, I pulled off 20 FPS average on VHigh 1440x900 - was playable thru most of the game.

20 FPS is far from playable.

you need to up the quad, crysis is as demanding on the cpu as the gpu.

Can you back up that, any reviews or test?


I have run Crysis Benchmark Tool, Harbor, 25loop with my Rampage Rig (run the same sequece ingame and logged with Fraps, it turned out the same)

266 9 2,4 800 5-5-5-15 PL3

1280x960 Low Q 0xAA 80,76 fps
1600x1200 High Q 0xAA 28,87 fps

400 9 3,6 1200 5-5-5-15 PL5

1280x960 Low Q 0xAA 114,63 fps
1600x1200 High Q 0xAA 28,54 fps

500 8 4,0 1200 5-5-5-15 PL7

1280x960 Low Q 0xAA 207,41 fps
1600x1200 High Q 0xAA 28,56 fps


Conclusion

Bet your money on the grahpics card and not the CPU, memory or mobo.

Crysis scaled well up to 4.0, after that I didn't see any appreciable difference.
