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 the 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 playable. Also, Anti-aliasing is turned off for the same reason.
Benchmark Results: In Crysis Warhead, for some reason, the PNY GT 240 has a big difference in performance compared to the AXLE GT 240, even putting it behind the HD 4670 at 1440x900. The biggest surprise here is that the 9800 GT got the exact same frame rates as the AXLE GT 240.
