Crysis Warhead updates and refines the gameplay of the original game through a sidestory plot involving Psycho, one of previous protagonist Nomad's allies. The game is a parallel story that follows Sergeant Michael "Psycho" Sykes, a character from the original Crysis, as he faces his own trials and challenges on the other side of the island during the time period of the first game.

 

It also showcases a new, enhanced and optimized version of CryEngine 2 using full DX10 extensions and is the first game developed by Crytek's Budapest studio.

Under Warhead we can see that for the most part there was very little change in the driver performance in the minimum department. With that said, though, at 1680 x 1050 we saw a 4.3% jump for the Catalyst 9.6, while a 4.1% drop was seen at 1920 x 1200 for the ForceWare 190.38.

 

In the average department the ForceWare drivers saw a small bump at 1680, while both setups saw a drop at 2560 x 1600 with ATIs being greater.
