Crysis 3 – PC System Requirements Revealed, DX11 Spotted As A Minimum GPU Requirement

Crytek and Electronic Arts have officially revealed the PC system requirements for Crysis 3. Although these specs can be found on Crytek’s official website, we suspect that they are not the real deal. As we can see, Crysis 3 PC might be a DX11-only title, something that was never stated by Crytek.
It’s really shocking, so let’s hope that it’s an error from Crytek and not a real requirement. Not only that, but Crytek has mistakenly listed the Intel Core i3-530 as a quad-core CPU. Furthermore, instead of a quad-core CPU, Crytek has listed a quad-core GPU as a recommended requirement.
We’ll contact Crytek, so expect an update on it the moment we hear back from it.

Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
