DX10: Crysis Warhead

Crysis Warhead is an expansion pack based on the original Crysis video game. Crysis Warhead is based in the future, where an ancient alien spacecraft has been discovered beneath the Earth on an island east of the Philippines. Crysis Warhead uses a refined version of the CryENGINE2 graphics engine. Like Crysis, Warhead uses the Microsoft Direct3D 10 (DirectX-10) API for graphics rendering.

Benchmark Reviews uses the HOC Crysis Warhead benchmark tool to test and measure graphic performance using the Airfield 1 demo scene. This short test places a high amount of stress on a graphics card because of detailed terrain and textures, but also for the test settings used. Using the DirectX-10 test with Very High Quality settings, the Airfield 1 demo scene receives 4x anti-aliasing and 16x anisotropic filtering to create maximum graphic load and separate the products according to their performance.

Using the highest quality DirectX-10 settings with 4x AA and 16x AF, only the most powerful graphics cards are expected to perform well in our Crysis Warhead benchmark tests. DirectX-11 extensions are not supported in Crysis: Warhead, and SSAO is not an available option.

Cost Analysis: Crysis Warhead (1920x1200)

  • Radeon HD 5770: $10.00 per FPS
  • GeForce GTX 465: $11.91 per FPS
  • Radeon HD 5850: $13.26 per FPS
  • GeForce GTX 470: $12.69 per FPS
  • Radeon HD 5870: $14.44 per FPS
  • GeForce GTX 480: $15.15 per FPS
  • Radeon HD 5970: $17.95 per FPS
  • GeForce GTX480 SLI: $20 per FPS*
  • * Possible maximum frame rate limit imposed by either the PC video game or HOC benchmark tool.

    Test Summary: The CryENGINE2 graphics engine used in Crysis Warhead responds well to both ATI and NVIDIA products, which allows the ASUS ENGTX465/2DI/1GD5 to nearly match performance to the Radeon HD 5850 at 1680x1050 and only 2-FPS away at 1920x1200. Oddly enough, the GeForce GTX-465 appears to yield identical performance to the older GeForce GTX-285... again. For fan of Crysis, the GeForce GTX 465 offers the best price to performance ratio compared with the GTX-470 and Radeon HD 5850 right behind it.
