Games Will Leap Towards Photo-Realism With DirectX 11

Written by Daniel
Thursday, 17 September 2009

Video games have reached a plateau in recent years. Games still look good, but there hasn't been a leap forward towards photo-realism that many have been seeking.

Heard it too many times now to believe it any longer. You can call me cynical if you wish.

Ignoring the "linucs hans solo" community members, I can think of Crysis, Far Cry2, Grid as the most spectacular games out there.

Crysis 2 for PC as any other decent game for PC will make the sister console version (in case there is one) look pretty bad. I guess that if you really want to play upcoming titles at the best possible settings you will use W7+good hardware.

You'd rather hope that would be the case, given a midrange DX11 graphics card (Radeon HD 5850) is set to cost more than a PS3! Crysis 2 is aiming for PC, XBox 360 and PS3, so you'll have a chance to compare how a decent DX11 PC that costs multiple times as much as a console stacks up with them.

There's a fair few videos/screenshots floating around the net for CryEngine 3 on consoles too.
