On Crysis Warhead/Crysis Performance

The German PC Games Website has a tidbit from an interview with Crytek boss Cevat Yerli that will appear in an upcoming issue of their print counterpart. The story is in German, but a translation tells us Yerli is offering reassurances to gamers that Crysis Warhead should be able to achieve frame rates of 30-35 FPS in "high" detail mode on a PC that costs around 400 Euros. He also says changes may possibly be retrofitted into Crysis in a future patch to offer similar performance improvements, but that this will be a timely process, as the optimizations involved are complex, so if they revisit Crysis performance, this will be after development of Crysis Warhead is complete.
