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 PCs 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.

The Radeon HD 7990 outran the GeForce GTX 690 and Titan at both resolutions we tested with Crysis 3, and even nudged past the dual-card GeForce GTX 680 SLI configuration.

Once again though, we see some frame latency issues with the Radeon HD 7990. Interestingly enough, things looked good in the first part of the test, but got progressively worst as we ran through the map.  The GeForce GTX 690, however, clearly does not suffer from the same issue.
