Eg. Heaven 2.1 benchmark also manages to score 100% on the GPU, where it yields similar results to what benchmarks on reviews get.

Crysis 2 is in the same boat. You know a game was properly optimized when it manages to stress your GPU better than the CPU.

Vantage however. That's somewhat CPU dependent. =P

I know you're going to miss my point and cry "ur cpu is bottleneck", no it's not my CPU's fault. It's the how well optimized an engine is for use on PC.
Well, I must agree I do not like CPU dependant games, but hey, you at least got an overkill card! I had it too, it's a beast

Btw, Crysis 2 uses quad core properly, an upgrade on ur CPU would please u a lot

Btw I didn't mean to offend you.

I think you will be able to. However i would wait for the official demo to see.

2048x1152 High dx9 on stock 5850 45fps average on the leaked game is what i get

Maybe you could add details of the limited and nano editions.

I have the Limited edition pre-ordered on Amazon

I do too.


old vs new nanosuit

the new nanosuit is fine. But it doesn't allow as much control over it as the old one i guess is the best way to put it. Like i am limited to invisibility or armor. Speed and strength are done automatically.

Basically your energy bar is just for your speed/cloak/armor and then you get a cod like health system where the screen goes bloody on the edges when you physical health in in jeopardy. However this doesn't effect your suit in any way which makes it almost impossible to die in the campaign.

Example you are playing on normal just standing there with 20 baddies shooting you. you turn on armor you are basically invincible until your energy drains and then you start taking damage however by the time you are about to die your energy has recharged and you can turn on armor at which point your health refills and your energy drains. And the cycle could just repeat forever without you even firring a shoot you could take the bullets from a dozen baddies. Granted this in on "normal" settings. More difficult setting should fix this.

Basically you sort of lack the control over your suit vs before. Running around switching between speed and Super strength every couple sec creating insane mayhem is not as easy as before. You can run around (not as fast) and you can punch (not as hard). You can clock (which is better than the old cloak) and there is armor (better than before).

So it's personal tastes it's still a great game. It just feels like i am playing cod with crysis graphics and suit with a touch of Battle field thrown in for good measure.... Still buying though i'm huge fan of the original crysis

He's had Tri-SLI for a while now... I'm sure he didn't upgrade just for Crysis 2. He's also running 2d/3d surround, which makes use of a Tri-SLI system as well.

Enthusiasts like he and I (as well as others) buy and use three cards for EVERY game, not just one.

That makes more sense.

All FPS games are too easy on normal. I never play on anything other than hard. You need good reflexes in single player also, sometimes even more than multiplayer.
