IBM was contracted by Sony to design the Cell and in turn they used the stuff they came up with when Microsoft ask them to make a CPU for the 360.

Yes the PS3's Cell can push more flops than a 980x but try using one to run windows alternativly try using a 980x to calculate floating point data... It's like having one of those hammer block toy thingies with the shaped blocks and shaped holes, you can force the cylinder through the cube hole, It's just not very good.
No matter what situation you put both CPU's in the 980x will always win.

Why are we talking about crysis lol, the ps3 cant even run crysis.

Compare crysis 2 on ps3 to pc and maybe.

That's sort-of the point. The 980x can do things the Cell cannot - and that's why it's superior.

I used this analogy last time we had one of these threads..

If you (Cell) can run faster than I (980x) can, but I can fly while you cannot, which one of us has superior mobility?

Surely you would need an OS installed (unless they used linux).
The 256mb of memory is really going to hold it back.
And i will be slightly surprised if that is real.

It was ported to Cryengine 3 and developed by crytek.

O Right thats pretty neat.

Gflops wise the cell does= the 980x,

but the 980x does rape it.

If you actually understood what CryEngine 2 was actually calculating/rendering at any given frame you would be gob smacked and just how efficient it is.

Crysis has 3-4x the effects being calculated per frame then Unreal Engine 3.

And Reli 2 comes with a custom config file that is more DEMANDING then the stock CVARS, So if you're getting faster performance you need to learn to install it properly.
You still don't know what optimizing means...
You take out stuff that doesn't need to be as resource demanding so that you can focus on what's important.
Learn to troll before you do it you troll-wannabe.

What to expect from a person that doesn't even know what optimizing means.
Uhh.. Thing

The game is optomised for the amount of effects that's being processed

And taking stuff out meens making the game look worse and not pushing anything forward.

Can you imagine how **** Crysis would look if Crytek took all the demanding stuff out? Games would never move forward if developers did that.

For the amount of polygons, textures, shadows and shaders Crysis is pushing it is optomised.

What's your views on Metro 2033? Is that optimized?
