I don't play many games, but Crysis has got me excited. I haven't wanted to get a game like this since LoZ:OoT.

Crysis is gonna make computers cry out in pain.

320 stream processors, 1GB RAM, and 512-bit wow this thing should handle Crysis @ 1920X1200. Even with the 5% Apple underclock.

Hopefully Apple (or any other manufacturer) will release a Mac version of the HD 2900XT so you can use it on both windows and osx on a Mac Pro.

Crysis looks completely real :eek:. I don't think my X1600 will be able to handle it at 1440 x 900. The R600 in my MacBook Pro would be nice :p.

I'll just go with my first impression. "Holy Crap"

RL still looks better. The only thing missing on the top pic is the colors. The lower pic is the grass. That definitely has to be hard to get perfect. Overall though I am highly impressed. I'm not a huge graphics person but I am putting my hands together for that dev group.

I'd sell my soul for a quad-core machine built around two of those Radeons. :D

I betting the Radeon HD model that Apple chooses will be a BTO option.

In a year or so... Apple is always so far behind on the graphics card scene :( Not to mention you need to drop $2000+ just to get the base Mac Pro to put the $500+ graphic card into *sigh*

It's ONLY the 512MB "XT" Running Crysis max at 1600*1200 with 52 FPS! And $400 cheap.

$400=200. That is very cheap. Considering I bought a Radeon 9600pro when they weren't even the fastest card for 150.

And Crysis looks beautiful. I told people to wake me up when video game graphics looked realistic (and not realistic plastercine models) and it looks like the time is now :)

Time to find a partner for my 8800GTS. :p It's jaw dropping when you see the side by side comparisons of the game vs real-life.

Yeah, these 'prices' are cheap. I hope the AMD/ATI bond can bring prices down for these chips - cos those 1900's currently look quite pricey!

Those images look incredible. I can only imagine what it'd look like on a 23' with 1900x1200.

I cant wait!
