No DirectX 10 support for Crysis 3

by William Schwartz on December 3, 2012

EA and Crytek have released the official system specifications for Crysis 3, and it looks like it will be a lot more demanding on the wallets of PC gamers who aren’t already capable of running DirectX 11.  This shouldn’t come as a huge surprise for those looking to play Crysis 3 on PC, as the game has a history of demanding a powerful machine to run well.

The three sets of system requirements can be found below, and with just a couple months to go before the release of this third installment in the Crysis franchise, perhaps you now know what to ask Santa to stuff your stocking with.

Minimum System Operating Requirements for PC

-Windows Vista, Windows 7 or Windows 8

-Direct X11 graphics card with 1Gb Video RAM

-Dual core CPU

-2GB Memory (3Gb on Vista)

    Too easy


    hey brevs i know you only have a 1080p monitor but do you think my 2560 x 1440p monitor can max this out on a gtx 670?

    • Brevs

      Most likely not. Not at 60fps.

      I am not dumb enough to buy a monitor over 1080p. So trying to insult me with that is laughable. I rather buy 3 1080p monitors than 1 1440p.


        its ok if you can only afford a 1080p display

        • Bruised Negro

          No adult in their right mind would talk to people like you do. Grow up or please leave.

        • Brevs

          Why on earth would I waste $500-$1000 dollars on 1 single 1440p monitors when I can buy 2 or 3 1080p monitors plus a gtx 680 or two gtx 680s for the same price?


            hahaha it was 420$ bucks man? 120$ more than a TN 1080p panel. i think the Super IPS and 2560 x 1440p was worth the extra money.

      • Allen

        But u are dumb enough to pay for xbox live

  • Jens

    Brevs > Hipsters


    hey maybe if jen keeps paying you to gargle his balls you can afford one haha =D

    • Brevs

      but i don’t even know who jens is D:. And what tells you I cant afford one? I own two gtx 680s with 2 1080p monitors and an i7 3770k. :|

    2560 x 1440p monitor.

    Not really a big deal considering Full HD 1080 x 1920 is the best you will get for film, tv and practically all games. few games can be played at higher resolutions and to be honest its pointless unless less it become the industry standard. Not everyone has the money to buy and stay up to date with Computer Hardware.

    Plus id take a 32 inch or larger TV anyday over a pc monitor.

    1080p will be the standard for years. And also most HD TV is only 1080i or 720. Only thing that is actually 1080p are Blu-Rays & Very few games.

    If you can run crysis 2, you can run crysis 3, you know, since its the same game.

    • אלכס כהן

      No you can’t! I can max out Crysis 2 but I can’t run Crysis 3 on minimum because my GPU doesn’t support DX11!
      Crysis 2 can run properly on my laptop which has only 64mb Vram, but Crysis 3 can’t run on my desktop which has 890mb Vram.
      How are those the same requierments exactly? You don’t know shit of what you talk about.
