GTX 680/HD 7970 for high performance


Electronic Arts has finally revealed minimum, recommended and high performance system requirements for the upcoming Crysis 3 first-person shooter and, unsuprisingly, if you want to play it at high performance settings you'll need AMD's Radeon HD 7970 or Nvidia GTX 680 graphics cards paired up with a decent CPU.

Posted over at Crysis.com, the system requirements are pretty much in line with what expectations, and Crysis 3 will run on Windows Vista, Windows 7 or Windows 8 OS. The minimum requirements include at least a dual core CPU, DirectX 11 graphics card with 1GB of VRAM and 2GB of memory (3GB on Vista OS). As an example, EA offered Intel's Core 2 Duo E6600 paired up with GTS 450 graphics card or AMD's Athlon 64 X2 5200+ paired up with Radeon HD 5770.

The recommended specs take these specs a notch higher to quad-core CPU and 4GB of system memory with examples like GTX 560 paired up with Core i3-530 or Radeon HD 5870 paired up with Phenom II X2 565. The high performance requirements include "latest DirectX 11 GPU" and "latest quad-core CPU" paired up with 8GB of system memory. The examples are Intel's Core i7-2600k paired up with the GTX 680 or AMD FX-4150 paired up with Radeon HD 7970.

Crysis 3 is scheduled for February 2013 release and will be available for PC, Xbox 360 and Playstation 3.
