Crysis 3 PC System Requirements Announced


Crysis 3 PC System Requirements Announced
How will your machine handle it?
The system requirements for EA Games and Crytek’s Crysis 3 were recently released, and lets just say, if you’re a fan of the series and were still looking for something for Christmas, a new computer should definitely be at the top of the list.

When Crysis was released on to the PC scene around the world back in late 2007, it made a lot of gamers re-evaluate their system set-up. To be able to play Crysis properly, you needed one hell of a rig. Even today five years later, many PC gamers still like to put their new machine through what they have deemed the “Crysis Test”: if your computer can run Crysis, it can handle anything.

It looks as though gamers will need to continue that trend, as Crysis 3 is shaping up to be a monster of a game.

These are the minimum requirements you will need to get the game running:

• Windows Vista, Windows 7 or Windows 8
• DirectX 11 graphics card with 1Gb Video RAM
• Dual core CPU
• 2GB Memory (3GB on Vista)
• Example 1 (Nvidia/Intel):
– Nvidia GTS 450
– Intel Core2 Duo 2.4 Ghz (E6600)
• Example 2 (AMD):
– AMD Radeon HD5770
– AMD Athlon64 X2 2.7 Ghz (5200+)

To be able to turn the settings up much higher, this is what your rig will need to be comprised of:

• Windows Vista, Windows 7 or Windows 8
• DirectX 11 graphics card with 1GB Video RAM
• Quad core GPU
• 4GB Memory
• Example 1 (Nvidia/Intel):
– Nvidia GTX 560
– Intel Core i3-530
• Example 2 (AMD):
– AMD Radeon HD5870
– AMD Phenom II X2 565

If you want your machine to pass the Crysis Test, you better be extra nice for Santa this year:

• Windows Vista, Windows 7 or Windows 8
• Latest DirectX 11 graphics card
• Latest quad core CPU
• 8GB Memory
• Example 1 (Nvidia/Intel):
– NVidia GTX 680
– Intel Core i7-2600k
• Example 2 (AMD):
– AMD Radeon HD7970
– AMD Bulldozer FX4150

Crysis 3 is slated for a PC release in February 2013. It will also be available for Xbox 360 and PS3, just don’t expect it to look quite as nice as the PC version!
