Wtf is the point of having this kinda power if most Developers don`t push the vis envelope in their games.

Multi-screen gaming.

Not required, I run 6080x1200 (3x 24" 1920x1200) on a single GTX680 4 gig (the extra RAM makes the big difference with the extra displays, a 2 gig has issues with the textures), typically most games can run med-high no sweat. Far Cry 3 on high ran solidly, although I'd say envelope pushing with Crysis 3 might give it a heart attack... =)

Ya, I was just pointing out that in multi-screen gaming you really start to need this sort of power if you want to jack the settings up. I run dual 7970s in 3 24" screens and there are many games I can't play on the max settings across all three. Then I have to compromise, either lower the settings or play on the center screen.

I think these cards are made for people who don't want to compromise and obviously like to spend their extra cash on their gaming hobby.

While it pains me greatly to say so, I actually have to agree with loony (sic.) A single 7970 at 2560 resolution would not maintain 60fps on the highest settings in any of the examples he listed.

I never claimed it would, I'm just saying you don't need to run out and buy a $1000+ quasi-commercial card to solve that "problem" necessarily but hey if thats how someone wants to spend their money *shrug*. You can't simply set a framerate target in stone either, different engines are optimized for different targets. The original Crysis is a great example of that. My personal philosophy is to shoot for reasonable averages at what I consider playable at the highest settings.

I understand, but he is obviously (abrasively) coming from a point of view where he wants to play his games in the highest settings at the highest single monitor resolution you can without sacrificing frame rate. And this scenario will require two $500 cards (or I suppose this card, which I don't know anything about.)

Obviously no one needs any of this stuff, but he is arguing against people who say with a single monitor this is overkill, which for that criteria it is not.

wrong motherfuckers. 680/7970 can both skip down to 30fps or below in crysis/far cry/bf3/skyrim modded. you just need a 2560x monitor and the settings turned up.

don't preach unless you're on a 30" monitor playing all games at the highest settings. if you aren't part of the $1000 video card club or $1000 monitor club, don't open your stupid fingers, you damned whiners

Nah, you don't need a $1000 videocard to drive that setup and there's a difference between minimum framerates and average. You can spend yourself into debt chasing high mins that will always be elusive due to optimization, driver issues and etc. Single card solutions are a mixed bag for multi-mon and very high resolution gaming, there are many scenarios where SLI/CF is preferable as an upgrade path. Either way the real world usage scenario for something like this in a single monitor setup is going to be practically non-existent outside of a development environment. You can spend half the money and get the majority of the performance from a consumer part to drive your crazy Korean monitor or Apple Cinema Display.

While it pains me greatly to say so, I actually have to agree with loony (sic.) A single 7970 at 2560 resolution would not maintain 60fps on the highest settings in any of the examples he listed.

i'm gonna call it: this game had lots of internal issues and lots of delays amd with a large budget no less. It will suck big time.

I sure hope you're wrong, but the delays do have me wondering.


Was it delayed much? I don't feel like I had to wait long. Maybe I'm just used to it.

Watercooling is for the overclocking subculture of hardware enthusiasts not the mainstream pc gamers.


I think real watercooling is, but they sell kits now that are no harder to install than a regular CPU fan/heatsink. Although I don't know how you define "mainstream" pc gamers, so perhaps you would think even that was beyond what they would do.

I just read the whole thing as a long-winded version of "the game will have great graphics that far exceed what a console can do."

Crytek, if you want to throw some marketing bucks my way, I can come up with more.

I can assure you this game will not turn out like Aliens:CM.....lol

I hope you're right, but I'm not holding my breath...


No one should.

Has Ken Levine put out a dud yet? I know he did Thief, System Shock 1 and 2 and BioShock and those were all really great.

Granted, watching the trailer makes me wonder if the actual game part can hold up, but it seems his track record is really good so far unless I'm forgetting some games.

Maybe the lousy ones fade away


That's an interesting question! And while wikipedia isn't always the most accurate, it mentions he worked on a few games I either wasn't aware he did, or forgot about:

System Shock 2: lead writer and designer
Tribes: Vengeance : writer
SWAT 4 : executive producer


I thought Tribes Vengeance was pretty good. Never heard of the other one, though.

Nice try saving face Verno.

At least you finally admitted the truth in a round-about way despite knowing I was right all along about virtually everything I've bothered to post...

I think somebody needs a timeout. We'll watch your elmo videos after you behave.

I think the biggest population of people playing D3 is because they missed the boat with D2. Sure they'll say how they're vets and shit, but its pretty much bullshit - just newbs who fell off the wow train.

Most hardcore D2 players sure as shit aint playing D3, and you know I know where they are... ::))

I wasn't aware you knew all the hard-core D2 players personally. That's impressive!

I liked the new Star Trek as a movie on it's own, but it's a Star Trek blasphemy. They totally destroyed the previous Star Trek legacy. It barely has links, other than character names. It's a dumbed down mindless explosion fest.

I've watched most star trek shows (never saw enterprise) and all the movies, but I wouldn't say I was a rabid fan. I don't even particularly remember the 2009 movie all that well other than it had time travel and young star trek characters (and that I enjoyed it.) What specifically did they destroy? I'm not trying to argue; I'm just curious.

Both will suck. 1. Because video game movies suck, and 2. It's JJ Abrams.

While this has a good chance of being true, there are several movies of games that are pretty good. Same with games of movies. There are also a lot of them that suck, but I wanna dispel the idea that they all do.

I'm not really sure you can dispel an opinion, but ok.
