Sapphire R9 280X Toxic 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 1920x1080 and 5760x1080, the the R9 280X Toxic can hold its own against one of the best video cards out, the GTX 780, when you look at the average FPS results.
Looking at the gameplay the frame time percentile charts show nothing out of the ordinary with a flat curve up to the 98th percentile. At 1920x1080 we get a smooth gameplay experience with frame times swinging within a 10ms range. As you would expect with FPS averages of around 20FPS, the frame time variance is going to be wider leading to a less fluid experience.
