Got Crysis Warhead yesterday: It runs on high "kinda". I can get 40+ FPS but it will dip and freeze for no apparent reason. There's gotta be bottleneck somewhere in the system (I'm thinking it's my 2 gigs of ram, or my ATI 4850; but the 4850 can run Crysis at 40+ FPS on my system though). It might also be DX10, because when I run it in DX9, while it does not have some of the extra effects, it does run smoother.

You have a 4850 and you can only sort of run it on High? I'm running the original Crysis with my 4870 in Ultra High mode with an average of 30fps.

The difference in performance between the 4850 and 4870 is pretty big. But the 4850 should still get you about 20fps on high settings at 1920x1200

I don't even run it at that high a resolution (My monitor goes up to 1680x1050)And when I mean "sort of" runs on high, I mean that it will run okay for a bit, but when, lets say, an explosion goes off it will dip, then it will go back. And in DX9 mode, it will run on high (and probably some max settings on) with little (if any) problems.I don't really need a 4870 though. Besides not being able to run Crysis with everything maxed, my card runs every other game just fine with the settings maxed out. And now my PC gets much better airflow with the smaller profile card and it's MUCH quieter than my old Nvidia 8800 GTS. And even with just Crysis, it ran IN DX10 mode with much less frame dips. When I get home from class/work I'll see if I can figure it out.

I'm running in DX9 Ultra High mode, so that may be why, and sometimes it dips but 24fps seems to be the worst that it will keep at for awhile. Definitely really playable, 60+fps indoors too.Always figured the 4850 wasn't far behind my card at all.

I plugged in two more gigs of ram, and most of the frame rate dips are gone. It's not totally smooth (but then again, it's not on nearly any computer) but it runs much better now.When I put the extra ram in, the game used up around 2.3 Gigs or so, so that's probably why I had those problems.

Did you have these problems with the original? I thought warhead was supposed to be optimized and was able to give better performance than Crysis.

Yeah, that sounds like it's just as bad as the original Crysis :X

Anything below 30 FPS shouldn't really be acceptable. Lower your settings bro'z.
