Crysis 3 – CrossFire
Crysis 3 (DirectX 11)
Master the power of the Nanosuit. Armor, Speed, Strength and the ability to cloak are the ingredients of the most effective tactical combat armor ever created. Suit up! It's all yours in Crysis 3.
The GTX 780 in SLI clearly makes a smoother gaming experience here than the R9 290s in CrossFire and you can see it with the much wider band of orange in our Frame Times graphic. In addition, the GTX 780s in SLI are able to produce a higher average frame rate across our testing as well at 2560×1440.
Things at 4K are a bit different though. Even though the frame times show more variance for the CrossFire setup than in SLI, the AMD R9 290s are able to produce better scaling than the GTX 780s. NVIDIA SLI is smoother though and compared to getting a 10 FPS faster frame rate (at these low FPS levels) I would tend to favor the NVIDIA configuration in my play testing.
