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 new GeForce GTX 770 cards performed relatively well in our Crysis 3 tests, besting the Radeon HD 7970 GHz Edition and GeForce GTX 680 at both resolutions. SLI scaling was also very good here.

Save for a couple of events, there were no major issues with frametimes / frame pacing in Crysis 3 with the single-card configurations...

The same can't be said about the dual-card configurations, however. In this game the Radeon HD 7970 CrossFire setup's frametimes were much more inconsistent.
