Crysis, released in late 2007, has been around long enough for graphics card technology to evolve to a point where playable frame rates can be achieved without having to resort to a low detail environment. The game was developed by Crytek and is published by EA Games. This Sci-Fi First Person Shooter has you playing as part of an elite team sent to respond to a distress signal on a small tropical island in the Philippines.


  • Anti-Aliasing: x2
  • Advanced Settings: High












Higher Scores = Better Performance


While still a stout test when the settings are increased, the quad GPU setups give frame rates that are entirely playable, from just under 60 FPS at 1920x200 to just over 50 FPS at 2560x1600. The single GPU cards were able to deliver decent performance even at 2560x1600, with the exception being the CrossFire'd HD 4850s.
