Crysis 3

Still one of our most punishing benchmarks 3 years later, Crysis 3 needs no introduction. Crytek’s DX11 masterpiece, Crysis 3’s Very High settings still punish even the best of video cards, never mind the rest. Along with its high performance requirements, Crysis 3 is a rather balanced game in terms of power consumption and vendor optimizations. As a result it can give us a good look at how our video cards stack up on average, and later on in this article how power consumption plays out.

    Vega is launching with Vega branding (replacing the Fury branding). AMD obviously knows that the people in the market for such cards are all over review sites, so know the product as Vega already. Why change a good name? Reply

    Yes, they officially named the product RX Vega at the end of the Capsaicin&Cream event. Reply

    @hoohoo: exactly, that's what I was thinking right from beginning when they announced this nonsense. This was totally lame move and just irritates ppl like me.

    I would just have hopped that Ryan nails AMD a little bit more for this stupid move and not using 4x5 names which they had present in RX400 slides as possible revisions names.

    @DanNeely: no OEM doesn't need new numbers, that's bullshit story. Or if they does how 485 isn't new number to 480?
    OEM wants to sell stuff, and if AMD cant produce good enough product they need to resort to misleading customers and playing stupid "new gen/new number" game.
    What I mean by misleading customers? Apart having us for idiots, well I can imagine that some 480 (higher end) will have better perf than some 580 (lower end). Average joe is not gonna compare that his 580 has 20mhz lower clock then 480 OC/whatever edition. Because in honest word it couldn't happen that next gen same tier card have lower perf than previous gen under any circumstances...

    Well...they did refresh the R9 200 series with the R9 300 series, just before Fury launched....maybe this means Vega will be out soon... Reply

    Vega is coming before 1 June. Good spot -- it's exactly like the 300 series and Fury, isn't it! Reply

    Ryan, the clockspeed chart is showing 1680 mhz for Ashes while all the rest are showing around 1380 mhz. Is that a typo? Just letting you know so you can fix it. Thanks for the article. :) Reply
