Crysis Warhead updates and refines the game-play of Crysis through a side story plot involving Psycho, one of previous protagonist Nomad's allies. The game is a parallel story that follows Sergeant Michael "Psycho" Sykes, a character from the original Crysis, as he faces his own trials and challenges on the other side of the island during the time period of the first game. It features new fully customizable weapons, vehicles and enemies, along with new multiplayer content. It also showcases a new, enhanced and optimized version of Cry Engine 2.
For this test, the 'Mainstream' level settings were used, as this is still such a demanding game for any video card. Enthusiast settings are out of the question, and I wanted this game to be very playable. Also, Anti-aliasing is turned off for the same reason.
In Crysis: Warhead, the larger frame buffer plays to the AXLE GT 240's side at the higher resolution putting it just over 9% faster than the 9600 GSO, and over 30% faster than the HD 4670. At lower resolutions, the cards are again neck and neck with the AXLE GT 240 right in the middle.
