Performance Comparisons with Crysis
If you're at all into enthusiast computing, the highly anticipated single player demo of the hot, new, upcoming 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 the 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.
Crysis pounded all of the cards we tested into oblivion, but the pattern we witnessed with EP2 reemerged. In the Crysis benchmark, the Radeon HD 3650 was able to sneak passed the Radeon HD 2600 XT and was even managed to beat out the GeForce 8800 GTS at the lowest resolution.
