MSI R9 270X 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.

 

Settings:

  • 1x SMAA
  • Texture Resolution =  High
  • System Spec = Very High

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

At 1920x1080, the MSI R9 270X Hawk delivers gameplay close to that of the GTX 760 and HD 7950 while outshining the GTX 660 and HD 7870 by 5+ FPS. At 5760x1080, the R9 270X Hawk is within a single FPS of the GTX 760.

 

FCAT Results:

At 1920x1080, the performance curve of the R9 270X Hawk is almost flat with the maximum frame times spiking up to just under 100ms, while the HD 7870 hits spikes over 200ms. Gameplay at 1920x1080 is relatively smooth with the R9 270X Hawk, yet at 5760x1080, you can expect the experience to be less than fluid from just about every card in the comparison.
