Crysis Results

Crysis v1.21
DirectX 10 Gaming Performance

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 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. We ran the full game patched to v1.21 with all of the game's visual options set to 'Very High' to put a significant load on the graphics cards being tested. A custom demo recorded on the Ice level was used throughout testing.

Crysis brought things back in line with our expectations, as the BFG GTX 285 OCX tops the other two overclocked GTX 285's. All three cards offer a nice bump in performance over the reference GTX 285, especially at 2560x1600.
