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 drive games for the next few years, and Crysis 3 looks to be much the same for 2013.

Our final benchmark goes out with another solid victory for the GTX 760. 1080p at Very High quality isn’t going to be a great experience – this is Crysis, after all – but 1080p at High quality will see the GTX 760 average just shy of 60fps, 14% ahead of the 7950B. Also once again the GTX 760 ends up being very close to the GTX 670, trailing it by just 2%.

Meanwhile taking one last look at our older cards, the GTX 760 is decidedly average, outperforming the GTX 560 Ti by 68% here. The gap over the GTX 460 is larger yet, at 113%.

    Hmm, it took a while but it seems like I finally have a suitable upgrade path from my CF 6950x2 (unlocked)... I paid about $225 for each of those and I just haven't seen a card (or a pair of cards) that would be a substantial enough upgrade for under $500. SLI GTX 760 is more than I was hoping for, when the 770 came in at $400 I almost expected this to come in at $300+.

    Now, the question is, will I be bottlenecking myself under future games with 2GB GTX 760s in SLI for gaming at 5760x1200 or 3600x1920? My 6950s have held up well but I've been playing a lot of older games too... Should I be looking at a single GTX 780 instead or something?

    As is so often the case, that depends on the games you're playing, and whether you're
    using any mods, etc. Heavily modded Skyrim definitely needs more than 2GB even with
    one high-res display. Heavy AA also needs more VRAM. Personally, if I was going for
    multi-screen gaming, I'd want more than 2GB. Others have mentioned a 4GB 760, so
    maybe that's an option? Or of course there are the various 3GB AMD cards, though I
    wouldn't bother with CF until AMD's new drivers are out.

    Some advantages of getting a single 780: better upgrade path in the future, less
    power consumption, no SLI issues. The down side of course is the cost.

    The most attractive feature is the 256 bit bus that would enable you a huge bandwidth and you can deal with any sort of resolutions if necessary. and for laptop accessories and many more, check this out- http://tinyurl.com/neqrzr9

    Wow. initially I kind of panned the GTX 770 because I didn't feel it was enough of a jump from the 670 for the price difference. Seemed like it wasn't a big hardware jump and that you were paying for the software goodies like GPU Boost 2.0, but after seeing the number difference between the 670 and 770 I gotta say I'm pleasantly surprised with how well the 770 performs.

    Let's see, no mention of the R270? You can find them for $150-175 (cheaper than the GTX) and they are virtually the same as far as performance. Reply

    Seeing how the new GTX960 is just slightly ahead of GTX760, i guess buying the GTX760 was a smart choice. The gap between GTX970 and GTX960 is MASSIVE. Reply
