The GTX 280 outperformed all of the single GPU cards in the Crysis tests. It also gave the dual GPU cards a run for their money, as it tied or beat them in two out of the four resolutions tested. At the lower end of the resolution scale, the difference between the GTX 280 and the 9800 GTX was three frames per second and the gap widened to twelve once 1920x1200 was reached. As resolutions increased, the GTX 280 performance drop was not as steep as the other single GPU cards.
