Crysis: "Frankenrig"
Posted: Wednesday July 26th, 2006 by

A few days ago I stumbled across the system spec requirements to play Crytek's (the folk's responsible for Far Cry) upcoming Sci-Fi FPS, Crysis. I saw this game at E3, even grabbed some video of if. And, I could tell that it was going to be intense and, in a word, awesome. I could also tell that it was going to push system requirements, but I had no idea it would be this brutal.

Snip:
Minimum Requirements:
CPU: Athlon 64 3000+/Intel 2.8ghz
Graphics: Nvidia 6600/X800GTO (SM 2.0)
RAM: 768Mb/1Gb on Windows Vista
HDD: 6GB
Internet: 256k+
Optical Drive: DVD
Software: DX9.0c with Windows XP


Recommended Requirements:
CPU: Dual-core CPU (Athlon X2/Pentium D)
Graphics: Nvidia 7800GTX/ATI X1800XT (SM 3.0) or DX10 equivalent
RAM: 1.5Gb
HDD: 6GB
Internet: 512k+ (128k+ upstream)
Optical Drive: DVD
Software: DX10 with Windows Vista



Now, I'll admit that my machine easily meets the minimum specs. Hell, it even surpasses most of the recommended specs. But still... you know how these spec lists go. The "recommended" list still tends to be lower than you need to play the game effectively. So, given Ted's inclinations I thought it would only be natural that he build a machine that could truly PLAY the game.
