Smooth Creations LANShark Extreme Gaming Rig
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.
The LANShark Extreme's Crysis performance puts it at the number two position compared to the rest of the systems. While it doesn't best the GTX 280 SLI config, it beats the others by a large margin.
