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 of 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.
Results: The EVGA GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 Superclocked Edition was over 10% faster than the stock GeForce GTX 260 at a resolution of 1280×1024 and was right behind the GeForce GTX 280 in terms of performance.
