Crysis is a science fiction first-person shooter computer game that was developed by Crytek, and published by Electronic Arts. It was released on November 15, 2007 in the United States. The game is based off the CryENGINE2 game engine, which is an extended version of CryENGINE, the game engine behind the hit game Far Cry a number of years ago.
On October 26th, 2007, Crytek recently released a single-player demo that has the entire first level, Contact, as well as the sand box editor included. We used FRAPS to benchmark this multi-threaded DirectX 10 beta that came just a few weeks ago.
Results: Crysis is obviously tough on video cards with high graphics settings, with only the XFX GeForce 8800 Ultra XXX edition having an average frame rate above 40. The XFX GeForce 8800 GTS 512MB Alpha Dog XXX edition was running 38FPS on average at 1280x1024 with high graphics quality settings. Crysis has the ability to run 'Very High' graphics quality settings, so even with the game quality backed down you can see how tough it is on modern systems. The XFX GeForce 8800 GTS 512MB XXX edition was again 15% faster than the GeForce 8800 GT 512MB cards, so after a half a dozen games we are starting to see a pattern of 12-15% faster.
Results: At 1600x1200 with medium graphics quality the XFX GeForce 8800 GTS 512MB XXX edition again was 12% faster than the GeForce 8800 GT 512MB cards and was able to play the game without many annoying stutters.
