The first major DirectX10 title from EA, Crysis, is a game I'm sure a lot of us are looking forward to. The folks over at Hardspell managed to get a pre-release copy of Crysis, on Windows Vista using drivers that aren't available to the public yet. These preliminary benchmarks certainly don't look too good. A system that we'd call overkill high-end simply choked on Crysis. The system was running a QX6700, 2 G80's, dual raptors in RAID 0, 4GB low latency RAM, and a PhysX card.
- At 1024x768, Crysis ran at 44 FPS average, with a mininum of 33 FPS and a maximum of 69 FPS.
- At 1280x1024, Crysis ran at 37 FPS average, with a minimum of 17.3 FPS, and a maximum of 52 FPS.
- At 2560x1600 Crysis ran at a whopping 1.7 FPS average, with a minimum of .2 FPS, and a maximum of around 5 FPS.
