Crysis Performance

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.

More expected results with teh Crysis GPU benchmark.  The highest clocked card of the bunch, the Asus EN8800GT TOP took the top spot, followed by the next highest clocked card, the EVGA e-GeForce 8800 GT KO, and finally the MSI NX8800GT. The deltas separating the three GeForce 8800 GT cards were miniscule, however.
