Crysis 3 (DX11)

Simply put, Crysis 3 is one of the best looking PC games of all time and it demands a heavy system investment before even trying to enable higher detail settings. Our benchmark sequence for this one replicates a typical gameplay condition within the New York dome and consists of a run-through interspersed with a few explosions for good measure Due to the hefty system resource needs of this game, post-process FXAA was used in the place of MSAA.


Given then drivers arenít fully optimized for Crysis 3 at this point, the TITAN puts in a very respectable showing with framerates remaining well within playable levels throughout testing. What it canít do however is compete on a level footing with the massively powerful GTX 690 which pulls ahead by a good 15%. Meanwhile, the GTX 680 and HD 7970 GHz Edition arenít even in the same league and fail to deliver playable framerates.


Surround resolutions severely kneecap performance in this game and in order to attain playable framerates, we had to use the High preset rather than Very High. Nonetheless, the positioning of the respective cards remained nearly identical as the previous test with the TITAN once again floating somewhere between single and dual GPU solutions.
