EA Shows Off Crysis 3 Gameplay Trailer

Crysis 3 is a first-person shooter developed by Crytek, using their CryEngine 3.  Released in February 2013, it is well known to make even powerful systems choke.  It has probably the highest graphics requirements of any game available today.  Unfortunately, Crytek didn’t include a standardized benchmark with Crysis 3.  While the enemies will move about on their own, we will attempt to keep the same testing process for each test.

    So how much voltage when card died?

  • alexsamag

    Is the voltage locked on this gpu? Because I can’t modify the voltage in afterburner or trixx.

  • thisrandomguy

    So you were able to OC the GPU Clock to 1075Mhz. You didn’t try to OC the memory clock ?
