Sapphire Vapor-X R9 290 Tri-X OC Video Card ReviewTue, Apr 22, 2014 - 9:37 AM
Crysis is well know for being highly graphic intensive, previously it was run at Medium settings to make it playable on lower end cards as they have problems running at maximum settings.
Crysis 3 has finally broken the 50FPS mark at Medium settings with the Sapphire Vapor-X R9 290. Receiving an average FPS of 55.4, it is evident that we can increase the graphics quality with the Sapphire card.
For the Eyefinity test, we went ahead and increased the graphics quality to Very High to see how it would do. At 5760×1080, the Sapphire Vapor-X R9 290 got an average FPS of 15.167 which is really too low to play regularly, but it sure did make Crysis 3 great to look at.
Benchmark Results: At Medium settings, Crysis 3 was very playable with 55.4FPS when run at 1080p. In the Eyefinity configuration of 5760×1080 we increased the graphics quality to Very High, which dropped the FPS to 15.167 and proved to be too much for the Sapphire Vapor-X R9 290; which really isn’t a huge surprise.
