HIS Radeon HD 4870 CrossFire Video Card Review – GDDR5 ArrivesWed, Jun 25, 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 1.2 for benchmarking. FRAPS was used over the internal benchmark utility to help avoid driver enhancements. Legit Reviews has just NVIDIA data for this game as we just recently updated the game to version 1.2 and picked a new scene to run FRAPS on and didn’t have time to re-test all the cards in time for this article, but managed to get a number of the high end cards tested.
Results: At 1920×1200 with very high quality settings and no AA we were almost able to reach 30FPS for the first time ever when running CrossFire on the Radeon HD 4870 video cards. Performance at the other resolutions was actually lower than single card, so ATI has some driver tweaking to do here.
