Crysis 3

Crysis 3, which is powered by Crytek’s proprietary CryENGINE 3 technology is the third installment in this popular franchise. Crysis 3 is the sequel to 2011’s Crysis 2 and follows Prophet as he returns to New York a few years after the events of Crysis 2. Like previous games in the franchise, Crysis 3 has impressive visuals that can tax even the most powerful PC’s when cranked up to their maximum values. We tested this game at various resolutions with all in-game graphics options set to Very High, with 4X MSAA and 16X anisotropic filtering enabled and motion blur set to high.

We saw more of the same in our Crysis 3 tests. The Radeon HD 7790 cards were measurably faster than the Radeon HD 7770, and performance was about on par with or slightly better than the GeForce GTX 650 Ti. However, the Radeon HD 7850 (and especially the GeForce GTX 660) were the clear performance leaders here.
