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 EVGA GeForce GTX 780 SC with ACX cooling continued to rock the benchmarks on our Crysis 3 tests, besting every other single-GPU powered card, including the GeForce GTX Titan, at both resolutions.

All of the cards exhibited a major spike or two in frame latency at around the same point in Crysis 3, but generally all of the cards smoothly delivered frames to the screen according to out FCAT data. Once again, the EVGA card consistently delivered frames with the lowest latencies.
