Crysis v1.21
DirectX 10 Gaming Performance


Crytek's game engine visuals in Crysis are some of the most impressive real-time 3D renderings we've seen to date on a computer screen. 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 an impressive use of Shader technology. The single player, FPS Crysis is a smash-hit, and rightfully so. We ran the full game patched to v1.2 with all of the game's visual options set to 'High' to put a significant load on the systems' graphics engines being tested.

Like it has on many other tests, the Gamer Paladin F970 came in near the top, but not at the very top. The GeForce GTX 280 SLI and Smooth Creations LANShark Extreme’s Radeon HD 4870 X2 beat the Gamer Paladin F970’s respectable 56.51fps here.
