1. Crysis Performance and Benchmarks. Nov 28, 2007, 11:37 rocketpcguy
 
As we mentioned earlier, there really is little reason to run Crysis in DX10 mode. Right now, the game runs slower in DX10 than DX9 on every card we tested. With the configuration file hack mentioned earlier, the Very High options are available to you even in DX9, and looks nearly the same as DX10.

HUMILIATION TIME:

BrutalDeluxe: Oct 29, 12:16
But here's the thing: we were never told that dx10 could do things dx9 couldn't. What we were told is that DX10 is an API more efficient than DX9 for certain effects. Meaning you'll get more performance from a dx10 card if the codebase has planned for it.

SFSW: Oct 29, 15:16
That's true. Any scene rendered in DX10 can be rendered virtually the same in DX9, there are just some 'common sense' performance improvements in DX10 to allow running more of them simultaneously.

Malakai: Oct 29, 17:10
So just what is everyone comlpaining about? It's CLEAR that the DX10 render is miles ahead of the DX9. Are people just complaining because they're pissed off they cant afford the hardware to run Crysis properly? Or is it because people dont want to upgrade to Vista because of "incompatability"?

No one on earth can play this game on 'very high dx10' + max fsaa + 16AF + 1650 res. No one. Hardware doesn't exist. There are no discrepancies. It simply can't be done, SLI, quad core or not.

i just quoted this because everyone else is doing it.

Yeah, I'm struggling to think of a game that has co-op and native widescreen support.
why? doesn't the word "bittorrent" mean anything to you?

mOOzilla... reminds me of milk. speaking of drinks, I think Sprite is better than 7up. its the difference of sugar that makes the difference.

there aren't many new 3rd person shooter games released, so this should be a change, right?

everything single thing in the guide could be done with the GUI, except for one single command:
wine iexplore http://appdb.winehq.com/
other than that, everything is graphical. so you need to be an IT master to type that?

how easily can you run linux-only software like k3b in windows? don't you think its a massive feat getting windows software working in linux without developer support?
