Crysis 2 uses a development of the Crysis Warhead engine optimised for efficiency. The game has few graphics options with just three main profiles: high, very high and extreme. For tests without antialiasing, we went for the very high mode and with 4x antialising we went for extreme, as it activates the 4x antialiasing filter. Note however that it also activates other graphics improvements.
We measured performance with Fraps in version 1.1 of the game.
The results gave us the following usual comparisons:
Radeon HD 6850 = GeForce GTX 460 1 GB
Radeon HD 5770 = GeForce GTX 550 Ti
Radeon HD 5750 = GeForce GTS 450
The Radeon HD 6790 does a little better than the Radeon HD 5770 and equals the GeForce GTX 460 SE when antialiasing is used.
