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.
Crysis Test Settings
Results on Crysis are impressive! At 1280×1024 the HD 4870 512MB simply blows away the performance of the previous HD 3870 X2 card!
The HD 4870 has another good showing when compared to the GTX 280 – up there but just not quite enough to best it. CrossFire again performs very well getting us as much as 40% scaling at 1920×1200.
The AMD HD 4850s are scaling pretty well in Crysis – 61% at 1920×1200, 55% at 1600×1200 and 29% at 1280×1024. Of note as well is how close the single card performance of the HD 4850 is to the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 260!
