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.

  1. I’m sure it’s too late now, but the performance of the Phenom 4 is way better than the FX series. If you are going to be buying a dedicated graphics card (which I assume you will be) you don’t need the FX card since they are meant for consumer systems with lower end GPUs. I’ve got a Phenom 4 in my rig and I’ve never been happier. Just my 2 cents.

  2. so did you get any help from the syndicate?

    • I didn’t contact them, but their video’s on the FX-8350 were very helpful. I like these guys and have subscribed to their channel.

      Thanks for the recommendation!

  3. CryEngine 3 is amazing…Too bad Crytek is wasting it on Crysis game series instead of making some game with potential like new Trespasser or survival game based on the Robinson Crusoe book and Minecraft.
