PowerColor R9 290X PCS+ 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.
- 1x SMAA
- Texture Resolution = Very High
- System Spec = High
At both 1920x1080 and 5760x1080, PowerColor's R9 290X delivers the highest FPS out of the cards tested. The higher factory clock speeds certainly help here. The frame times again are tight, delivering smooth animation despite falling just below 30FPS at 5760x1080.
