Crysis 3

Still one of our most punishing benchmarks, Crysis 3 needs no introduction. With Crysis 3, Crytek has gone back to trying to kill computers and still holds “most punishing shooter” 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 2014.

    On a PC you must count all costs. The hardware case, if it is a cheap gamimg PC you want at least a decent mouse and KB. You will not get under 400 dollars.

    Plus, you again miss the point of consoles: exclusive games and convenience. Most people do not know how to build their own PC if they buy disparate parts from all over. So factor in assembly costs as well.

    The 2 CUs are NOT disabled. They are simply reserved. 1280 cores are still available. Any PC program or game doing GPGPU (i.e. physics, mechanics, MS DirectCompute operations) will result in the about same amount being "reserved" on the GPU for non-graphical tasks as well.

    In addition the PS4 is not exactly Pitcairn since it also has TrueAudio--something that came with Bonaire

    And where the hell are you getting your figures from? The R7 260X has 896 cores @ 1Ghz. The R7 265 only has 1024 cores @ 1.1Ghz. Simply going by theoretical GFLOPS is meaningless. It doesn't take into account programming architecture as well as rendering process for ROPs which again, the PS4 GPU has more of

    You're also being dishonest by trying to add the cost of a game (and why just 1?) And a subscription. So? How does that not apply to PC as well? At least there's only one cheap annual subscription that gives you access for all online gaming. With PC gaming there are multiple models each from different publishers. Reply

    Wow. What do they think, everybody here is an OC pro who has/had world records and has a monster closed loop browsing/gaming/work setup? I don't give a damn about lower power consumption if it means I have to OC the balls off the card! Reply

    Please include at least one fp64 benchmark in the compute section.
    It is great that you found out and reported the fp64 ratio.
    Its a pity there isn't at least one low power low profile card with good DP Gflops (at least enough to beat the CPU and form a compelling argument to switch API's)
    At work we only get small form factor PCs, and asking for anything that looks different ends in politics.

    For the moment FP64 data is available via Bench. This being a mainstream consumer card, it's purposely not built for high FP64 performance; FP64 is there for compatibility purposes rather than being able to do much in the way of useful work.

    This is a purposeful market segmentation move that won't be going anywhere. So cards such as the 750 Ti will always be very slow at FP64.

    Now we need a manufacturer to release a GTX750 with single-slot cooler. Reply

    While all of this "low power" stuff is a little boring to me (not that anything is really pushing the high end card) I hope that in the not too distant future even the video cards like the 780/Titan will be able to be powered by the PCI alone.

    I would love to do a gaming build with a PCI based SSD and no cables coming off the video cards, it would be so clean!

    Well I want laser light circuit cables. So much faster than copper and they would look so clean, you wouldn't even know there was a cable there unless you put your hand into the laser beams to see the pretty lights...

    ... Ahh crap another BSOD, these laser cables suck!

    Starting to wonder what a good card to replace a GTX 560 Ti would be (that's still relatively affordable). Would I have to step up to something like the R9 270 or GTX 760 cards to make things worthwhile? The power savings of the GTX 750 Ti aren't really a big factor as I'm currently using a 650w PSU, but I also don't want to spend a ton of money. Reply
