XFX and Palit GeForce 9800 GTX Video CardsTue, Apr 01, 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 1.2 for benchmarking. FRAPS was used over the internal benchmark utility to help avoid driver enhancements. Legit Reviews has just NVIDIA data for this game as we just recently updated the game to version 1.2 and picked a new scene to run FRAPS on and didn’t have time to re-test all the cards in time for this article, but managed to get a number of the high end cards tested.
Results: With the latest patch of Crysis all of the high end cards look great and the GeForce 9800 GTX seems to be an improvement over the GeForce 8800 GTX with high quality settings.
Results: Very high quality settings push any graphics card to the limits of what they can do even with no AA and here we see the how the cards do at 1920×1200. The GeForce 9800 GTX was found to be 15% faster than the GeForce 8800 GTX with these settings.
