Crysis 3 PC specs revealed

2 min read

Crysis 2 was a game with such stunning visuals, that running them to the max on your PC was the real world equivalent of setting a Ferrari on fire. Beautiful to watch, but all too brief to enjoy. So can Crysis 3 carry on that CPU-melting tradition? See the specs for yourself, after the jump.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia’s M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!

    Crysis 2 was not hard to run. Thats why people with nice rigs were pissed when it released. You are thinking about the original Crysis for 2007 that no one was able to run on full settings.
    I max out crysis 3 at 2560×1440 and its the best looking game I’ve ever played. Its amazing. Just beat it, awesome ending. Highly recommended.

    They need to start making games that can actually strain my rig. I’m starting to wonder what the point of purchasing all of the best components for was when I can run anything on ultra settings and then some. >.>;
