Crysis is a new addition to the gaming benchmark suite used at OverclockersClub.com. This game is one of the most anticipated and system intensive games to be released to the gaming community. The Crysis single player demo includes both a CPU and GPU benchmark to test the performance of the processor and video card installed in the system.
Note*- Graphics testing may be confusing. So I will clarify why it is different from past reviews. The Phenom is part of a platform which is called Spider. In order to show how the Platform works as a whole I will show the Phenom using the ATI 3870 (Single and Crossfire), comparing it to the Q6600 with the HD 2900XT (Single and Crossfire) and as an extra bonus throw in the 8800 GT as a sneek peek for an upcoming review. Sorry for the confusion.
- 2x Anti-Aliasing
- Advanced settings to medium
You will notice that there is only one score for each CPU; the CPU test is not affected by a video card as it renders the same numbers for the processor no matter what video card is used.
