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. 

Although the numbers generally stuck to their familiar pattern in the Crysis 3 benchmark, we noticed that MSI’s Radeon HD 7790 did slip a little further behind the GeForce GTX 650 Ti BOOST than we expected. Otherwise, the card landed squarely where we expected it to: bringing up the rear, but only ever so slightly, versus the other overclocked Radeon HD 7790 cards.
