With my 2.4 Penryn with 4 gigs of ram, do you think I'll be able to play it on moderate settings?
yes.. at low resolution like 1024x768 or lower. I can play with medium effects on that resolution. If you go lower you can increase the graphics to high but in areas where there is smoke/particles in the air or a bright light you will lag significantly (I'm inside the alien building..its pretty bad. it was generally good before that)
i have a 15" Penryn 2.5 MBP w/ 512 8600GT / 4GB RAM.....runs satisfactorily in boot camp (XP 32bit) (ie: poorly )
note, the game should be played on medium settings.
and check the results: (clearly, this generation of GPUs can't handle Crysis)
ps. also note that a 1+GHz improvement in processor speed only resulted in about 2-3fps improvement indicating that cyrsis barely utilizes the CPU (about 30% utilization in monitor on both cores)
I tried playing Crysis on medium in Bootcamp XP, and my MBP tried to kill me... using its heat ray gun, I think.
Well, I play crysis at 1440*900, everything at medium exept a few things (water, texture and something else) at high completly fluid. This is on a 15" 2,5 MBP with the GPU overclocked to 612/860 using Atitool. This is with the latest drivers from laptopvideo2go under Xp 32 in Bootcamp..
This config gives me roughly 5200 3d Mark 06 points - not to shabby!
Heatwise etc. there's no problem whatsoever - the MBP sufficiantly removes the heat and keeps the GPU cool and comfy =) . (You can hear the fans rev down from time to time - I'ts also a good thing to monitor the GPU temps under a long time in Atitool to check that everything i alright!)
Link to 3d Mark score (not the latest clock, only 800mhz on the memory) - >
I just want to say I played Crysis in beta and I didn't like it. Just my 2 cents.
forgot to mention that I have 4GB's of ram.
And oh- get your drivers here
Laptopvideo2go has had some badly modded INF's lately (no control panel options etc.)
Just saw they just released some new drivers - have to test them out!
I just got crysis running on my 2.4 Sr 15". It runs like a charm without any driver downloads. Native res and all settings on high except shadows, some depth setting, and sound which are on medium. Fraps checks to a steady 20 to 35 fps except in cutscenes when the extra textures are loaded up. Then a lame 10 fps. No heat problems when playing crysis. I always prop up the back of the notebook when gaming to allow good airflow.
