AMD & NVIDIA 4K Gaming with the ASUS PQ321Q Testing:
This third installment of the Crysis franchise, developed by Crytek and distributed by Electronic Arts, uses the CryEngine 3 game engine, and requires a DirectX 11 ready video card and operating system due to its demanding graphics engine.
- Texture Resolution= Very High
- System Spec= High
Starting with Crysis, you can see that the two cards I used for this test struggle to play Crysis 3 with the settings used. Reducing the quality settings can help with the GPU load but will not do enough without a stouter single card or multi GPUs. The multi GPU setups get closer to an ideal 30FPS.
When you look at the single card comparisons, the frame time charts show the two single cards are delivering less than optimal frame times across the time sequence. Moving to the multi GPU frame time comparison, it's evident that AMD has not gotten the frame metering in its driver up to par for this resolution. Seen under the wave of red you can see how the GTX 770 SLI combo works.
