Updated "Unofficial" System Requirements For Crysis

Crysis-Online has the "unofficial" updated minimum and recommended system requirements for the upcoming mega-smash hit Crytek masterpiece Crysis. Wow, that's a mouthful eh? Check these out.

Minimum Requirements

  • CPU - Athlon 64 3000+/Intel 2.8 Ghz
  • Video - Nvidia 6200 or Ati X1300 - Shader Model 2.0
  • RAM - 768 MB on Windows XP or 1 GB on Windows Vista
  • HDD - 6 GB
  • Internet - 256k+
  • Optical Drive - DVD
  • Software - Direct X 9.0c with Windows XP
Recommended Requirements
  • CPU - Dual Core CPU - Either Athlon X2 or Intel Pentium D
  • Video - Nvidia 7600GT or ATI X1800GTO - Shader Model 3.0 or DX10 Equivalent
  • RAM - 1.5GB+
  • HDD - 6GB
  • Internet - 512k+ - 128k Upstream
  • Optical Drive - DVD
  • Software - Direct X 9.0c with Windows XP
Also of note from the report are a couple of other things. Mainly that Crysis will run on both DX9 and DX10 and on Windows Vista and Windows XP. A video card supporting Shader Model 2.0 is the minimum, period. Don't bother with anything less. The CryEngine 2 as its called, can scale back quite a bit, around 2 years according to Crysis-Online, and scale ahead around 1.5 years or so. Crysis will utilize multi threaded CPU's which means the game will support Quad Core processors. A single Geforce 7800GTX will be able to pretty much max out the game.

Now remember, these are not confirmed specs, but I wouldn't doubt they are pretty accurate at this point. Time to upgrade the old PC folks?
