IDW Publishing has given io9 an exclusive sneak peek of the final issue of the Crysis comic miniseries, as penned by Crysis 2 scribe and Altered Carbon author Richard K. Morgan. The issue hits the stands Wednesday, November 2, and here's the synopsis:
Ok, maybe it's cheating a little because the graphics are rendered in the cloud and then streamed to the device via a service called OTOY, but still: The iPad runs Crysis. Kinda. [TechCrunch]
Crysis is the current standard bearer for PC game graphics. If your computer can run Crysis well, it's a pretty impressive setup. So it's pretty nuts to see Crysis running smoothly on a Samsung Omnia cellphone.
ATI and Nvidia have had plenty of time to fine-tune their graphics monsters for Windows 7, so with the latest drivers, Extremetech answers that burning question: Is Windows 7 or Vista faster for games?
Caustic Graphics, a startup from ex-Apple engineers, thinks their approach to 3D graphics—ray-tracing—will result in way more realistic eye candy than you see today, with chips that are 200x faster than today's by 2010.
We've all heard about Windows 7's speed gains over Vista, but how does it run Crysis?

The clincher: It only costs $700. Since the GameCyte guys thought this was too good to be true, they…
EA, better known to some as Electronic Arts, was the publisher behind the most recent PC-melting game on the block, Crysis. In conjunction with the upcoming Crysis Warhead, EA has mentioned that they will be selling custom branded PCs to accompany the launch. Aimed at those who might otherwise be intimidated by a…
Crytek, makers of the game/PC benchmarking software Crysis, have reported that they believe that the piracy rate on the game is somewhere between 15:1 and 20:1.
The Asus Eee is a fine computer and everything, but we never expected it to run the game-rig-melting Crysis at a high frame rate. So how is it possible? Forgery? Magic? Deal with the devil? No, just a new version of StreamMyGame that now supports UMPCs, mini-notebooks and all those tiny little wimp computers-over 100…
