Hardware & Software
Before i post an update on the project, i thought i’d post my decision on hardware.
I’m going to go with a the AMD FX-8350 8 core CPU, because its a real bargain for the performance, and the motherboards can be had very cheap. In fact, I’ve already purchased a motherboard and as soon as im able to, ill order an 8350.
Now for some software.
Check this video out:
Watch the whole thing and try not to be impressed. Those water caustics.. oh boy. Everything is just lovely, but i just pray that the terrain issues have been sorted!
I’m going to fire up the latest CE3 Free SDK build to see if its still the same..
Well after a quick test this afternoon, the terrain issues appear to be fixed, which is awesome news. There are some pretty serious performance issue though, so dont expect to see any CE3 work any time soon. I have no plans to use the Free SDK anyway.
Once i get some new hardware and Crysis 3 is out, i will look into porting the project over.
