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 GeForce GTX 760 cards we tested outperformed the Radeon HD 7950 and GeForce GTX 660 Ti in our Crysis 3 tests. The GeForce GTX 760 SLI configuration also scaled well in this game and outran the Radeon HD 7950 CrossFire setup.

There were no major frame pacing issues to report on our Crysis 3 tests with the single-GPU configurations either.

As we've said time and again though, the dual-GPU Radeon HD 7950 CrossFire configuration is far more inconsistent when delivering frames to the screen than the SLI rigs.
