Crysis 3 System Requirements

System Requirements Optimum 1080p PC Build Low vs Ultra Screenshots GPU Performance Chart CPU List That Meet System Requirements GPU List That Meet System Requirements

Crysis has been a benchmark for pushing PC hardware to the extreme. Crysis 2 eased off in its requirements and now we have Crysis 3. Which way will it go?

Well we have the crysis 3 system requirements to hand and they are hefty, let me run through them with you...

Crysis 3 Minimum PC System Requirements

OS: Windows Vista, Windows 7 or Windows 8

CPU: Dual core - Intel Core2 Duo 2.4 Ghz (E6600) / AMD Athlon64 X2 2.7 Ghz (5200+)

RAM: 2GB Memory (3GB on Vista)

GPU RAM: 1Gb Video RAM

GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTS 450 or  AMD Radeon HD 5770

DX: DirectX 11 graphics card         

HD: 20GB Hard drive space, although not confirmed

 

Crysis 3 Recommended PC System Requirements

OS: Windows Vista, Windows 7 or Windows 8

CPU:Intel Core i3-530 / AMD Phenom II X2 565

RAM: 4GB Memory

GPU RAM: 1Gb Video RAM

GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 560 or  AMD Radeon HD 5870

DX: DirectX 11 graphics card 

 

Crysis 3 Hi-Performance PC System Requirements

OS: Windows Vista, Windows 7 or Windows 8

CPU: Quad core - Intel Core i7-2600k / AMD Bulldozer FX4150

RAM: 8GB Memory

GPU: Nvidia GeForce GTX 680 or  AMD Radeon HD 7970

DX: DirectX 11 graphics card 

Ok, now this is the spot where I normally tell you not to panic because they have coded the game to run on the old hardware based consoles (Xbox 360 / PS3).

This will still be the case and we expect lots of FPS to be added for machines that even reach below the official Crysis 3 minimum requirements listed above so you will be able to make a judgement call for yourselves, plus we will benchmark the game ourselves also, on Old Bessy.

GD Crysis 3 advice

We suggest with this one that if you want to play Crysis 3 then do yourself a favour with this one. After we saw the difference with Far Cry 3 on PC compared to XBox 360, now is the time that the PC really is pushing far ahead. As the console is still the focus for development, it means that developers are trying very hard to make sure that their games are playable on old hardware, but they need the games to look and shine better than the competition and the only way to do this is to use the latest hardware that is only available in PCs at the moment.

This means the PC gamer is likely to net a significant win during this next year or two. If you have an aging PC then the games are likely to still run and if you have an awesome PC then you are likely to get a visual treat that is not available anywhere else.

We have had a blast at Crysis 3 already and it looked great. Our advice, if you are going to upgrade for Crysis 3 then hold off until around the end of January 2013 and then grab yourself a GPU upgrade. If you have loads of money then of course go with one of these - US or UK

We cant all afford those but we can dream right?

linear but it will probably offer a crysis 1 kind of environment, it is linear but offers a little bit of moving space instead of just standing and shooting

The graphics and detail are a big part of the Crysis games, so I doubt they will make an open world Crysis game, as it would be difficult to keep up their graphical standards with such big, open spaces :)

Well yes. I believe that you can max GTA IV on that resolution. But I can't because my res is pretty high for maxing GTA IV on my GPU.But I don't know what are the results ATM, because I haven't played GTA IV since I OC'd my GPU.
