Crysis Demo

Crysis Singleplayer Demo

Singleplayer Demo

If you're at all into enthusiast computing, the highly anticipated single player demo of the hot, new, upcoming FPS smash-hit Crysis, should require no introduction. Crytek's game engine visuals are easily the most impressive real-time 3D renderings we've seen on the computer screen to date.  The engine employs some of the latest techniques in 3D rendering like Parallax Occlusion Mapping, Subsurface Scattering, Motion Blur and Depth-of-Field effects, as well as some of the most impressive use of Shader technology we've seen yet.  In short, for those of you that want to skip the technical jib-jab, Crysis is HOT.  We ran the SP demo with all of the game's visual options set to 'High' to put a significant load on the graphics cards being tested.


There's no denying that Crysis is one of the most demanding games on current PC hardware, and even our mainstream 8800 GT is barely able to get to the 30 fps mark under these conditions.  The Diamond HD 3650's single-digit frame rates are a far cry from anything even coming close to playable - one would seriously need to cut back on the resolution or quality settings to get even close, but then what would be the point?
