Benchmarks: High Performance
The high quality preset provides slightly better graphics than the console version of Crysis 2 according to Crytek, and from our test results we see is very friendly to PC hardware. The newly released mid-range GeForce GTX 560 Ti averaged a blistering fast 91fps, while even ancient cards like the GeForce 9800 GT averaged 39fps. The Radeon HD 4850 and HD 5750 also offered acceptable performance at 44 and 46fps.
At 1920x1200 the GeForce GTX 560 Ti performance dipped to 74fps, while the GTX 285 averaged 65fps. The results were still strong across the board with the Radeon HD 4890 averaging 50fps and the GeForce GTX 260 with 51fps. However, many cards failed to meet our desired 40fps mark, including the HD 5750, GTS 450, HD 4850, 9800GT and HD 5670.
It's unlikely that anyone will want to play this game at 2560x1600 using lower-end quality settings, but we have provided the results for interest's sake. Here the GeForce GTX 560 Ti along with the GTX 285 and Radeon HD 6870 were the only graphics cards to provide playable performance, albeit borderline playable by our standards.
