Cervat Yerli, who seems to spend more time talking to the press than actually working on finishing the game, revealed that on most systems, Crysis is likely to be CPU bound. “If [your system is] balanced, we are more CPU bound then GPU, ” he told Shacknews. http://www.shacknews.com/featuredarticle.x?id=639 ” Multi-core will be beneficial in the experience, particularly in faster but also smoother framerates… We recommend quad core over higher clock.”
