NVIDIA GeForce GTX 275 Versus ATI Radeon HD 4890Thu, Apr 02, 2009 - 1:00 AM
Crysis Warhead updates and refines the gameplay 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 a new, enhanced and optimized version of Cry Engine 2.
Playing in “Gamer” mode automatically sets resolution to 1280×1024 and optimizes the other settings around this resolution. We ran the HOC benchmark utility with very high image quality settings to benchmark Crysis Warhead.
Benchmark Results: Crysis Warhead is tough on video cards with the image quality settings cranked up, and while the GeForce GTX 275 leads the performance chart over the Radeon HD 4890 it is only by 2-3 FPS depending on if you are looking at the Radeon HD 4890 or the Radeon HD 4890 OC.
