Benchmarks: Crysis, Crysis Warhead
When testing with Crysis using the DirectX 10 rendering mode at 2560x1600, the GeForce GTX 295 is still capable of averaging 39fps which is impressive. That said, the Radeon HD 4870 X2 is just as good managing 38fps, matching the GeForce GTX 260 SLI configuration.
The GeForce GTX 295 was an incredible 70% faster than the GeForce GTX 280, and 100% superior than a single Radeon HD 4870 (1GB) graphics card.
Interestingly, when running the same test in Crysis Warhead the results look quite different. Here the GeForce GTX 295 is 24% faster than the Radeon HD 4870 X2, and just a single frame faster than the GeForce GTX 260 SLI setup.
