Page 5 - Crysis

There is hardly a thing that had not been said about this game, but let's summarize. This is a long awaited Crytek release, sort of a heir of FarCry, which 3 years ago was dazzling with its graphics, making gamers with the top-notch video cards (GeForce 5900 / Radeon 9800 at that time) murmur about being unable to play at highest settings like they were used to. Their high-end systems just being unable to cope with the heavy engine.

In other words - Crysis was one of the MOST expected game of 2007. Ingame you assume the role of future Spec-ops soldier, equipped with the so called “Crysis Suit” - a suit giving you special skills and powers. Henceforth we'll be talking about graphics and scenery so real as if pulled out of a Hollywood blockbuster. The vast and incredibly detailed levels require a large amount of memory, so if you fancy enjoying some of the more special DX10 effects and higher resolution, high class video card, processor an lots of RAM are a must. And they were... almost enough.

On the Internet you can easily find a tool named "Crysis Benchmark", but we had problems with it under Vista x64, under the 32-bit variant of the OS all was fine, so that little software made our lives easier. All tests were ran at least twice and the result is the divided sum between all attempts.

Since this is the first test that we did, we were fairly impressed with GeForce 9600 GT. The card did much better than it's direct competitor - HD 3850, it even ran neck and neck with HD 3870. HD 3870 X2 we'll waste no time commenting on, since at this time it has rather ugly problems with drivers, supposedly fixes with ne BETA ones... When they go official we'll re-run theHD 3870 X2 review, to see how things go.
