Nvidia RTX 3080 can run ‘Crysis Remastered’ in 4K on max


The Nvidia RTX 3080 is a beast of a graphics card, and it proved its mettle. The new Crysis Remastered runs at 4K with the GPU under its “Can It Run Crysis?” mode.

Multiple testers have tried to benchmark the Nvidia RTX 3080 to see its capabilities. So far, it’s a proven beast with its superb performance improvements. Among its feats is running the new Crysis Remastered and its ridiculous CIRC mode.

While the graphics card can only put out anywhere between 32-37 fps, it still is a monster. It shows how far the graphics card technology has come.

Crysis Remastered added a ridiculous CIRC mode

The new Crysis Remastered is among the most ridiculous games of recent times. It came out today, and players are finding its ray-tracing capabilities crazy. The title itself baked a lot of ray tracing mechanics to make it a monster of a title.

Even then, the game is somehow trying to win a pissing contest against its old self. Back when it launched, the original Crysis had so many improvements. The max settings for the game were two to three generations ahead of the curve.

Crysis was so ridiculous that the cheeky joke “Can It Run Crysis?” among PC circles became bog standard. The hardware-hungry system became a legend, and Crytek is trying to catch the same thunder in a bottle.

The remastered title baked a ton of lighting effects and ray tracing effects within the game. These include 8K textures, screen-spaced shadows and reflections, temporal anti-aliasing, and much more.

“Co-developed with Saber Interactive, the classic first person shooter will focus on the original game’s single-player campaign and is slated to contain high-quality textures up to 8K, HDR support, temporal anti-aliasing, Screen Space Directional Occlusion (SSDO), Global Illumination (SVOGI), state-of-the-art depth fields, new light settings, motion blur, parallax occlusion mapping, Screen Space Reflections and Shadows (SSR & SSS) as well as new and updated particle effects and more,” said Crytek.

All these RTX details come straight into the game, not only to make it gorgeous. Crytek is also trying to get the same memefied PC hardware craziness it had before.

New Nvidia 3000 series graphics cards are a beast

When it comes to hardware, Nvidia’s RTX line graphics card can handle Crysis at different levels. For example, the RTX Titan card can run the game at a full 4K60fps without a hitch. Even then, this is only on high settings.

Once the CIRC mode comes into play, the RTX Titan can only spurt around 22 fps. In some cases, professional benchmarkers like Linus Sebastian got far less. Around this point is where the Nvidia GTX 3080 shined.

Once popped in, multiple tests show the 3080 musters between 32 to 37 fps. In some places, the game runs at 25 fps, which was the original Crysis’ fps in consoles. It should be noted that benchmarkers were also running recording software at the time.

Crytek recently claimed that there’s no graphics card that can run CIRC mode at 4k30fps. The Nvidia GTX 3080 can do that and more. This information even gets better with the fact that the 3090 Titan can blow it out of the water.
