Crysis v1.1

Crysis (DirectX 10)


Without a doubt the most breath taking game I have seen yet, Crysis is from the developers of Far Cry, yet another title that was ahead of its time.  This game will bring any system to its knees, but look good doing it.

Ah, the true nexus of why multi-GPU gaming is so important to us: Crysis!  At first the performance scaling at 1024×768 seems a bit unnerving since we are only getting an average frame rate of 40.3 with four GPUs pumping on the game – however that is a noticeable increase over both the single HD 3870 and the dual-GPU HD 3870 X2.  Looking at 1280×1024 though, the move from three GPUs to four GPUs is still not impressive even though the minimum frame rate sees a HUGE jump of 67% or so.  The performance of three and four GPUs is still impressive for this title, unfortunately, as we are getting very playable rates here for nearly the first time.
