From the makers of Far Cry, Crysis offers FPS fans the best-looking, most highly-evolving gameplay, requiring the player to use adaptive tactics and total customization of weapons and armor to survive in dynamic, hostile environments including Zero-G.

 

Real time editing, bump mapping, dynamic lights, network system, integrated physics system, shaders, shadows and a dynamic music system are just some of the state of-the-art features the CryENGINE™ 2 offers. The CryENGINE™ 2 comes complete with all of its internal tools and also includes the CryENGINE™ 2 Sandbox world editing system

 

Intel Atom vs. VIA Nano Platforms

 

VIA showed at Computex its Nano setup playing Crysis with a dedicated graphics card. We wanted to replicate this.

 

With the Nano and 9800GX2, Crysis played at 1024x768 with medium level graphics settings quite comfortably. We were more than impressed that this was possible. It's not surprising that the IGP setups didn't have a chance, though.
