ATI Radeon HD 4550 Budget DX10.1 GPU
||If you're at all into enthusiast computing, the highly anticipated single player, FPS smash-hit Crysis, should require no introduction. Crytek's game engine produces some stunning visuals that are easily the most impressive real-time 3D renderings we've seen on the PC 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 a beast of a game. We ran the full game patched to v1.2 with all of its visual options set to 'High' to put a significant load on the graphics cards being tested A custom demo recorded on the Island level was used throughout testing.|
The Radeon HD 4550 didn't fare very well in our custom Crysis benchmark. In this test, the Radeon HD 4550 once again trailed all of the other cards we tested.
