Our friends over at PCGamesHardware have had a chance to play some Crysis Warhead on this year’s Games Convention, and they’ve found out it’s quite a resource hog.

The tested PC consisted of Core 2 Extreme QX9770, 4GB of DDR3 1333 RAM and a Geforce GTX 260 graphics card. Crysis Warhead ran in DX9 mode, antialiasing was inactive and the resolution was set to 1,152 x 864, but they couldn’t change the settings as the menu was inaccessible.

In the long intro video fps didn’t drop below 41, but they noticed that memory usage is quite high. Crysis Warhead game console reported that 2,146MB were in use, whereas Crysis went up to 1,300MB. The game, afterwards, ran at 35 fps and 29 fps in some more demanding scenes, but memory usage climbed up at 2,190.

Well, it’s still early to say anything, as there’s more work to be done on the game, but if memory usage stays like this, RAM manufacturers might rake in some nice dough, as 2GB simply won’t do.

You can read more here where you can find some screenshots, too.
