Crysis 3

Following a closed alpha and an open beta, Crysis 3 finally hits store shelves this week, and as you might expect Crytek’s shooter is as graphically demanding and power hungry as previous releases in the franchise. To give your system the best chance of success in the technologically-advanced title, download and install 314.07 WHQL, which improves single-GPU performance by up to 4.7%, and boosts multi-GPU performance by up to 65%.
