Dice have said that all Frostbite 2 games going forward in 2013 are now going to require a 64 bit OS and will take advantage of multiple cores/threads.
Maybe so but I had a 2500k with a 6870 and I was getting 60fps easy on Ultra with AA disabled in bf3. A 3570k and a gtx680 ain't gonna have no trouble maxing out the game with Ultra and AA enabled. Crysis3 I cannot comment on as my system blew up before I had a chance to try the beta.
