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.

We again see some good gains with the HD 4890; the extra MHz that ATI has offered us gives us a nice boost in performance.

Optimum Setup- We see that the coding in Warhead does little for the HD 4890. Even at 1680 x 1050 we would want to drop the detail to get that 30 FPS minimum we need.
