Crysis

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 is by far the hardest title on these cards and even at 1280×1024 they have trouble keeping a reliable playable framerate. The overclocked 9600 GT OCX from BFG does have a 12% performance lead over the stock card in both our resolutions.  The 8800 GT OCX card is able to outpace both of them though at 1600×1200 it is struggling to maintain playable rates.
