ATI Radeon HD 3870 X2: 2 GPUs 1 Card, A Return to the High Endby Anand Lal Shimpi on January 28, 2008 12:00 AM EST

Crysis ships with a built-in GPU benchmark, unfortunately the game is still too stressful to run at the highest quality settings so we're left running at the "high" defaults with no AA and at only two resolutions.
The last driver drop ensured that the 3870 X2 was actually faster than any single NVIDIA card in our lineup. At 1920 x 1200, the X2 is around 18% faster than the 8800 GTS 512. You'd need a pair of these X2s or faster in order to actually run at smooth frame rates at these settings unfortunately. It looks like the perfect card for Crysis still doesn't exist.
