ATI HD 4670 512MB GDDR3 Video Card Review

Crysis DX9

Crysis is one of those games that comes along every now and then and totally humbles every graphics card on the market. While some people have pointed towards shoddy programming, it is undeniable that this game looks ridiculously good when played at higher settings.

For this test we recorded a custom timedemo on the Harbor level equaling about 20 minutes of game time through jungle, over water and in vehicles. All results were recorded with FRAPS over the course of the timedemo.

1280 X 1024

1600 X 1200

This may not be an overly realistic test for a budget card; the HD 4670 did very well especially when the IQ was increased. We also see our first failure in this review with the 9500 GT flatly refusing to work at 1600 x 1200 resolution with AA turned on.
