In an Q&A with Gamespot, Crytek CEO Cevat Yerl, shared the following…
The quality of Crysis running on [minimum spec hardware] does equal the shading and texture quality of games that are about three years old, but with polygonal detail that is bigger then games from that same generation. The scaling happens in various areas, such as shading-quality, texture-resolution, shadows… Players who have DX10 will get a better-looking experience, with all of our settings dialed all the way up, but this will take up more of your hardware’s resources. This is what our “Very High” settings are reserved for, and if you have the hardware, we fully recommend it. Our “High” settings can be used by DX10 and DX9 users, and will perform better in DX10, though our DX9 players will have nothing to worry about because we are really pushing that technology to new levels.
