Which processor can run the Crysis game without a graphics card at all?

Of course, this is the newest Ryzen Threadripper 3990X.
Once upon a time, by the standards of the computer market, home PCs dispensed with video cards capable of processing three-dimensional images. These times are long gone, and modern graphics accelerators are striking in their performance and complexity.

Now the idea of ​​making the game work exclusively on the CPU seems silly. But a few days ago, the 64-core Ryzen Threadripper 3990X entered the market, and that all changed.

The enthusiasts of the Linus Tech Tips channel decided to check whether such a monstrous processor is able to cope with the game without any GPU. And not just a game, but with the cult Crysis, which at one time knelt all existing video cards.

As it turned out, even such a difficult task in the teeth for a monster AMD. Of course, with a number of reservations.

As you can see (the test in Crysis starts at 9:12), the game is clearly launched in some low resolution with minimal graphics quality and it slows down a lot. But it works.

At the same time, you can also see that all 128 threads are loaded to a minimum degree, although a relatively large load accounts for 10 of them at best. Simply put, if it were possible to optimize the software in such a way that it used all the processor cores, the game would probably work just fine, and with good graphics settings. But even such an achievement is extremely impressive.
