ASUS EAH3850 TOP Graphics Card

Crysis SP Demo Test Results


Performance Comparisons with Crysis

If you're at all into enthusiast computing, the highly anticipated single player demo of the hot, new FPS smash-hit Crysis, should require no introduction. Crytek's game engine visuals are easily the most impressive real-time 3D renderings we've seen on a computer screen to date. The engine employs some of the latest techniques in 3D rendering, like Parallax Occlusion Mapping, Subsurface Scattering, Motion Blur and Depth-of-Field effects, as well as some of the most impressive use of Shader technology we've seen yet. In short, for those of you that want to skip the technical jib-jab, Crysis is HOT. We ran the SP demo with all of the game's visual options set to 'High' to put a significant load on the graphics cards being tested.

This test was definitely torturous for our cards. We didn't even turn anti-aliasing or anisotropic filtering on since our initial scores were so low. Anyway, the EAH3850 TOP definitely took the crown here. Its higher clock speeds helped it best the HD 3850 by a nice margin, and the 8800 GT 256MB didn't even come close to competing, which really surprised us (and led us to re-testing the 8800 GT a handful of times).
