DirectX 11 Screenshots

With so many bits and bobs casting shadows you really get a good indication of the improvements that DirectX 11 brings to the table.

Water obviously looks stunning in motion and is one of the highlights of modern gaming, but even in a static shot there is a reality to it that's worthy of praise.

The level of detail is a far cry (ha) from the early gaming efforts. It's very easy to become complacent as games become more and more realistic, but as Crytek have proven with this upgrade to Crysis 2, we can still be surprised.

Ok quick question. Would an Alienware M18x with the 2630QM and 2 GTX580m's be able to handle DX11 Max Settings?Quote

I think it's more than able. There are some benchmarks in this article: http://laptoping.com/nvidia-geforce-gtx-580m-laptop-video-card-announced-benchmarked.htmlQuote

Well a 580m is around the performance of a GTX460, so using SLI GTX460 you'll get a minimum of 25 and average of 40.3 according to Tom's Hardware

But that is with AA off, but everything else maxed out. 25 FPS minimum is what I would consider playable, although personally I would prefer it never to drop below 30.

Also Tom, the high textures haven't fixed everything yet. Metal work still needs some work for example.Quote
