Crysis Warhead is a standalone expansion pack situated in time with the storyline of the original Crysis. As Sergeant "Psycho" Sykes, you have a secret mission to accomplish on the far side of the island. Along the way, there are EMP blasts and aliens to contend with, as you hunt down the KPA chief. This game uses an enhanced version of the CryEngine 2.
- Anti-Aliasing: x2
- Game Settings: Enthusiast
Higher Scores = Better Performance
With AA at x2 and the balance of the settings at the "Enthusuiast " level, this game is still a stiff test for the cards used in this roundup. The GTX 295 makes the best of this at 1920x1200, and drops 30 FPS when the resolution is increased to 2560x1600 - where the performance differential with it and the CrossFireX HD 4870x2 combo is really reduced to 2 FPS. In this test, the GTX 285 SLI setup fared better at 2560x1600 than the single GTX 295.
