CRYENGINE V was revealed during the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco earlier this month, but now we're seeing some benchmarks comparing CRYENGINE V against CRYENGINE 3 - as well as DX11 vs. DX12 tests. First, the CRYENGINE V vs. CRYENGINE 3 benchmark.



This comparison shows that CRYENGINE V is much more efficient, by around 20%. Not too bad considering there's nothing different in hardware, with an older NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780 Ti being used. The second video we have embedded below is testing CRYENGINE V with DirectX 12, against DX11. Check it out below:



Reports are surfacing that CRYENGINE V doesn't run so well on AMD hardware when using DX12 mode, but I'm sure that this will change in the near future.
