Crysis 3

Our final benchmark in our suite needs no introduction. With Crysis 3, Crytek has gone back to trying to kill computers, taking back the “most punishing game” title in our benchmark suite. Only in a handful of setups can we even run Crysis 3 at its highest (Very High) settings, and that’s still without AA. Crysis 1 was an excellent template for the kind of performance required to driver games for the next few years, and Crysis 3 looks to be much the same for 2013.

Even with just FXAA and High quality settings, Crysis 3 quashes any hope of running at 2560 with a single card at the game’s higher quality settings. 53.1fps is plenty playable, but GTX 780 users would need to give up a bit more if they want to push the averages above 60fps. Meanwhile looking at our percentages it’s another strong showing for the GTX 780, with the GTX 780 leading the GTX 680 by 30% and the 7970GE by 28%.

    I really appreciate that the guy who made this article showed us the texel and pixel fill rate in the synthetic benchmarks part of the review, instead of doing what me, and apparently inexperienced guy that isn't hired by one of the biggest tech reviewing websites on the internet and clearly lacks knowledge in this field, would do, which is, INCLUDE RESULTS MADE WITH 3DMARK11 IN PERFORMANCE PRESET (please don't include scores made in extreme preset, not everyone pays like 1000$ to get a license for a benchmark program, have some common sense) or in another popular benchmarking program, like Heaven, or maybe include the normal score for 3dmark vantage (even though nobody uses that anymore, even gpus from the amd 5XXX and nvidia 4XX series had support for dx11).

    I don't want to be rude, you're supposed to do your job, but when a stranger with no experience can do it better at least have the decency of actually caring about what to do, you do get paid for doing this, right?

    Finally, a worthy upgrade for my GTX580.
    Unfortunately, it is priced too much.

    If it was $500, I would probably order one now and be happy for the next 3 years or so, but I will wait for Maxwell.
