CPU-Intel Core i7-3930K Sandy Bridge-E
GPU's-EVGA 470x2 SLI
Memory-32 Gigs Patriot Viper Xtreme @ 1866
Win 7 Ulitmate 64

Guess the video cards are the only question mark.

what William responded I'm amazed that some one able to get paid $8306 in four weeks on the computer. have you read this website http://www.Cloud65.com

I have a 3770k (usually at 4.5GHZ, but had to reset bios recently) and 2 670s (msi power edition) overclocked to better than 680, so I should be just fine

Won't have a problem with my ASUS G75VW:

Intel Core i7 3610QM Ivy Bridge @2.30GHz up to 3.30GHz
8GB RAM 1600MHz
1.3TB HDD
2GB Nvidia GTX 660M
1920x1080 Display

You'll be lucky to hit a mix of medium and high at 1080p, crappy laptop GPU and so-so CPU.

According to my specs, no they would not. And the previous game literally burned out my ram...

avatar

ApathyCurve

Only Chuck Norris can run Crysis 3.

avatar

RUSENSITIVESWEETNESS

And I still haven't played Crysis....

Got a 3770, got a 680, got 16GB 1600MHz RAM. This is it? Not even recommending a 690? Amazing all the old rubbish in the comments that should be in the bin though.

I fall between the Medium and High, more towards the High End. Still, my AMD 6850 is getting old. Will probably go to a AMD 7850, the 7900's are still a little to spendy.

AMDfan64

Phenom II x4 @ 3.6 Ghz
Radeon HD 6770 (plan to upgrade a 9870 in 3 years)
8 GB ram, 500 GB HDD

I'm in the running, barely.

So a computer I built almost 6 years ago can meet both the minimum and recommended specs with nothing more than a 2 year old video card upgrade? I'm not impressed.

The question, "Can it run Crysis 3?" is completely irrelevant and not at all meaningful like the original, "Can it run Crysis?" question was several years ago. The question, "Can it run Crysis 3 smoothly at max settings?", may be more relevant, but the same could be said for many other games out there. There's nothing special about Crysis 3 in that.

fearsythe

AMD A6-3500 oc'd to 2.6ghz
8gb of RAM oc'd to ~1890mhz

I should be fine

avatar

lordfirefox

But can Crysis 3 not suck like Crysis 2?

avatar

Biceps

Ding ding ding! And THAT is the real question!

avatar

ohsnaps1104

I hope I'll do fine. Core i5 2500k @ 4.5ghz 8 gigs of xms3 ddr3 1600 and a 2 gig sapphire radeon hd 6970.

Good thing I'm running dual 1.21 jig-a-watt processors with overclocked flux capacitors!

Still curious about how this will stack up against ArmA III...

Played Crysis and Crysis Warhead too many times to forget or count. Loved them. Great games whether my gpu was barely alive at the end of each session or not.

Then came Crysis 2. Started the game. regretted buying it. Got near the end had enough and uninstalled it. Haven't played it since then. Doubt I will be playing Crysis 3. They ruined the interface, suit functions, game environment and turned the game into another call of duty knockoff with a suit.

Gezzer

I guess I should be fine:
i7 875K@4.14Ghz (water cooled)
8Gig Ram
2 EVGA 680GTX FTW+ 4Gig cards in SLI (water cooled)
Not to sure how well it'll do in my surround res of 6022x1200 though.
Might have to run single monitor.

I played Crysis back when "you [supposedly] need the starship Enterprise E's computer to play it" and even with some of the settings turned down (I always mix-n-match my settings on every game to give me the performance that I am happy with. --the benefit of having a PC in the first place), it was still one of the most visually impressive games I had ever played (still) and joined Far Cry, Unreal, Half-Life 2, F.E.A.R, and Timeshift as my fav FPSes.

I didn't feel Crysis 2 so I didn't play it but my rig then could cope just fine.

Nice to see that my current rig still sits between "Recommended" and "High Performance" on the (in)famous Crysis scale. I know that my PC can handle every other task with ease.

avatar

whathuhitwasntme

well even though my cpu is a bit older
i7 920
I have 12gb of ram
2 EVGA 570 in SLI
Windows 7 Ultra 64 bit

so yeah, I can play crisis 3

avatar

maverick knight

Im planning to get a second 570. Do you think it will compare to a 680??

avatar

rollergold

i7 920 @ 4.01ghz
Dual EVGA SC 680's
24gb of Ram

oh PS does an Oced 920 work for the High setting?

avatar

tony2tonez

I dont even make the min requirements. My CPU and video card are below the standards.

I've been on a steady diet of "corporate" laptops since 2002. The last PC I built was an AMD XP 2500+ based machine. So, gaming has been something of a crapshoot. . .

I finally broke down and bought a laptop for myself, cheap. Like, less than $300 cheap. It does handle Crysis (on high @ 1366 x 768) just fine. But Crysis 3? If GTS 450 is the minimum, that's a big negatory for me.

Maybe in five years.

avatar

myh1tlist101

GTS 450 right here. Whew just made it!

avatar

iplayoneasy

sli gtx480's and an FX 6300@4.8ghz. Yes. It can run Crysis.

avatar

Looks like I'll be at mid settings with my trusty ol' GTX 460. :)

avatar

jedisamurai

I don't play FPS but I'm glad someone is pushing the boundaries of what's considered minimum, recommended, and ultra spec. I've been putting off upgrading because the price is too high and the boost too low.

avatar

SliceAndDice

Well I was looking for and excuse to buy a 2nd HD 6970 to go with my i7 870 rig and I think I just found one. Its cool that I can still run it on my 8800 GTX e6600 system.

avatar

steven4570

I have the first gen core i7 920 along with the 680 so i should be ok...though i dont know how it will run at 2560x1600...will probably have to turn it down a bit.

avatar

Andrew.Hodge

3D Eyefinity anyone?

Aside from that, is anyone else kind of pissed off that it only maxes out at four threads? We've had processors that push eight threads for how long, now? What about twelve threads? How old is the 980x? Writing multithreaded software may be more difficult than singlethreaded, but it's not impossible. They're not some teenagers sitting in their mom's basement; they have the resources- take advantage of the technonogy.

pratikrawankar

I will not have any problem

i7-3770k
16 gb ram

HD 7950 + GTX 660Ti
1920*1080 display

https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.463975950279146.109178.100000002354177&type=3

but what are requirment for Ultra ???
I think above requirments are base on 30-32 FPS basic count

so if we want 60 FPS then only Dual GTX 780 or GTX 790 is the only way to go

avatar

kixofmyg0t

Well I'll be playing it on my PS3 like the first 2.

avatar

Granite

And here I thought Crysis3 was going to be tough on systems.

I guess I won't be having any problems with my i7 3930k (not OC'd), 16 GB ram, dual 680's (not OC'd).

I've seen videos and am looking forward to the game, but I am underwhelmed.

avatar

alex_dh9

Looks like it's already time to crossfire my 7870. I intend to upgrade on boxing day. Hopefully I can get another 7870 for $200. Insane to think that I bought my first one for $359 when they first launched.

By looking at this:

-----------
Windows Vista, Windows 7, or Windows 8
DirectX 11 graphics card with 1GB video RAM
Dual-core CPU
2GB memory (3GB on Vista, because apparently it's a pig of an OS)
Example 1 (Nvidia/Intel)
- Nvidia GTS 450
- Intel Core 2 Duo 2.4GHz (E6600)
Example 2 (AMD)
- AMD Radeon HD 5770
- AMD Athlon 64 X2 2.7GHz (5200+)
-----------

...I don't think it will be that demanding.

Furthermore, if EA decides to sell it only via Origin, they sureley can forget about getting my money, that damn program is so intrusive that I don't want to play BF3 anymore (that's the only game I have on Origin).

avatar

maverick knight

The article doesn't specify but I believe this is for 768 res with the lowest details. If that's the case then yes it can be played. And even then you will probably get less than 30 fps, maybe around 24 average.

Mediziner

Explain how the max setting CPU for AMD is the AMD Bulldozer FX 4150 while the max setting CPU for intel is the beastly 2600K. That's just messed up. The AMD Bulldozer FX 4150 is ~ intel's highest level i3, or the lowest i5.

avatar

kixofmyg0t

I guess you don't know what integers are or why that's Bulldozer's strong suit.

avatar

Mediziner

The 2600K just about destroyes the BEST Bulldozer in about all of the benchmarks... This is a joke, right?

avatar

Andrew.Hodge

The limiting factor in this game is GPU, not CPU. So long as the proc can funnel enough data to graphics to keep them fed, there shouldn't be an issue. I would imagine that they're doing some gpgpu compute for physics, lowering the cpu's role even more. So far as the 2600 beating the 8150, that's only in single threaded workloads. The FX4xwhatever is a much higher clocked chip, negating any major single threaded performance deltas.

avatar

DR_JDUBZ

My pc cant run it because it's only on origin

avatar

Dexter243

My 3 year old budget system will be fine

Athlon 2x4 3.0ghz unlocked 6meg L3 and with ease oc to a puny 3.3ghz and 8 gig ddr 2 and a budget refurb 336 cuda core 560 with 1gig vid ram

avatar

TrollBot5000

Doesn't sound unreasonable at all. Of course a brand new bleeding edge game is going to be developed around bleeding edge hardware. You get what you pay for. If you want to take the budget route don't expect 2560x1080 on ultra settings with 60+ fps.

avatar

Teh_tourist

You mean 2560 x 1440 right?

avatar

Woden501

I'd say I'm good no matter where I go.

Desktop:
Core i5 2500K
Crossfire AMD 5870's
8GB RAM

Laptop (MSI GT60 ONE-249US):
Core i7 3630QM
Nvidia GTX 680m
12GB RAM

And yes I think the laptop actually gets a better framerate in games than the desktop does although that's probably only because I run the desktop at 1920x1200 instead of 1080.
