Palit Radeon 4870 X2 CrossFire Video Card ReviewTue, Aug 12, 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.
Results: The Radeon HD 4870 X2 does very well against the GeForce GTX 280 and GTX 260, but the GeForce GTX 260 in SLI took the top spot in this benchmark. The Radeon HD 4870 X2 in CrossFireX didn’t scale well, but Crysis doesn’t scale well with more than two GPUs from either NVIDIA or ATI.
