Crysis Demo Performance Analysis

We test the newly released Crysis demo with an array of graphics cards to see what's required for a smooth experience.

Introduction

 

Less tappy tap (read: words), more picky pic (read: graphs). I didn't download the Crysis demo and choose not to play it just so I could write a whole bunch of words to explain what we're doing here.

 

It's simple, and I'm going to say it in a very simple way; lots of current generation graphics cards tested in Crysis with different settings and different resolutions. Too easy!

 

Test System Setup

 

Processor(s): Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 @ 3GHz (333MHz x 9)

 

Cooling: Corsair Nautilus500 (Supplied by Corsair) with Arctic Cooling MX-2 Thermal Compound (Supplied by Arctic Cooling)

 

Motherboard(s): ASUS Blitz Extreme (Supplied by ASUS)

 

Memory: 2 X 1GB Corsair XMS3 DDR-3 1066MHz 7-7-7-21 (Supplied by Corsair)

 

Hard Disk(s): Hitachi 80GB 7200RPM SATA-2

 

Operating System: Windows XP Professional SP2

 

Drivers: Catalyst 7.10 and Forceware 169.01

 

In the spirit of not typing much, it's the standard setup with the latest drivers from both camps.
