This game uses an enhanced version of the Cryengine 2.

It's hard to determine the top performer at stock settings for Crysis Warhead. Both the Gigabyte board and the MSI Eclipse manage to boost ahead one FPS at the middle resolution. Other than that, the boards are pretty much evenly matched.
The overclocked motherboards didn't see much of a performance increase. In fact, the ECS bored actually decreased in performance at the lower resolution. eVGA's X58 3X SLI board did give a 5FPS increase at the middle resolution, which looking at the other boards, is pretty big.
