The Test System

Before starting up The Crew and checking out its performance, let’s take a quick look at the test system. The test system is running an Intel i5-4690K processor on a Gigabyte Z97M Gaming-5 motherboard, pushing the processor to 4.4GHz. The Windows 8.1 operating system was installed on a Samsung Evo 750GB SSD. For the memory, 16GB Kingston HyperX Blu DDR3 was installed. To keep the system cool, a Corsair H105 liquid cooler was installed. The video card used in the performance testing is an eVGA GTX 970 SC ACX 2.0 with the GeForce 344.75 WHQL drivers, which enable MFAA for select titles.
