AMD Radeon R9 Fury X Review: Fiji And HBM Put To The Test

Crysis 3 Performance

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 R9 Fury X just misses the mark set by the GeForce GTX 980 Ti in Crysis 3. At both resolutions, the Fury X is competitive with the reference 980 Ti, but still finishes slightly behind.

Frame latencies are roughly in-line between the Fury X and 980 Ti as well in this game.
