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 Edge Z55 didn’t score quite as well in our Crysis test as it had on some of the other benchmarks relative to the other test systems. This is a very taxing benchmark GPU-wise, so an average frame rate of 36.47fps is considered playable. At 39.75fps, the Edge Z55 clicks over the minimum-playability mark, so it still fares pretty well, all things considered.
