Diamond HD 4870 512MB GDDR5 Video Card ReviewTue, Aug 19, 2008 - 12:00 AM
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.
The full retail version of the game Crysis was used with patch 1.21 for benchmarking. FRAPS was used over the internal benchmark utility to help avoid driver enhancements. The first 90 seconds of the Assault level were used for the time demo.
Results: The time demo used for the Crysis benchmark contains a very strenous section of the 2nd stage of the game. With the quality settings maxed out the HD 4870 leads the pack with ease. Lowering some of the quality settings to medium would easily make this game playable at 1920×1200.
