If you go to this review http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/geforce-gtx-295,212...

Tom's Hardware was able to pull 59fps 1680x1050 Very High/No AA/DX10/64bit and 54fps 4x AA

My system is almost identical to the test system specs and drivers...

Core i7 OC'd to 3.9GHz
G.Skill Ram @ 1480Mhz
(2)Sapphire 4870x2 Crossfire OC'd
Gigabyte UD5
1000watt PSU
WD Caviar Black 32mb Cache 640gig

I can't pull more than 49FPS Crysis Benchmark 1680x1050 Very High/DX10/Vsync Off/64bit/NOAA

Am I missing something?

Anyone with 4870x2's crossfired care to comment?

crysis doesnt scale well with crossfire as it does with sli. the game was optimized to run better on nvidia gpu's.

It is very likely that Tom's did not run the benchmark tool for their analysis, maybe they used in-game results ? Also, if they did use the benchmark tool, maybe they used one alot less intense than the one you are using.

Benchmark other games and see what you come up with before you get worried.

Actually I've been doing some research about this game, apparently it's just poorly coded or ahead of it's time...and the absolute highest FPS I found with 1680x1050 DX10 / NoAA / 64-Bit / V-sync Off was 57FPS Average on Crysis Benchmark Tool. That was with 3x SLI GTX 280's. I'm pulling 49-51 Average with my (2) 4870x2 Crossfired. With 16x AA on, I'm pulling 45FPS average.

The game is also Nvidia optimized.

Hopefully when ATI Catalyst 9.2 comes out this week, they significantly improve Crossfire and Multi-Core support, and these cards can actually start achieving their potential.

I just finished a bunch of Crysis Benchmarks

My PC

Core i7 920 - 3.9GHz OC
Gigabyte UD5
Coolermaster V8
G.Skill 1333 6-gigs 1480MHz OC
WD Caviar Black 32mb Cache 640gig
Sapphire (2) 4870x2 Crossfired 777Mhz GPU Clock / 980 MEM Clock Fan @ 50%
Silverstone 1000 watt single rail PSU

Crysis - V. 1.21
Crysis Benchmark Tool - V. 1.05
ATI Catalyst 8.12 HotFix

1680 x 1050 Everything Very High

DX10 / Vsync Off / 64 Bit / No AA - 49/50 Average FPS
DX10 / Vsync Off / 64 Bit / 16 AA - 46/47 Average FPS
DX10 / VSYNC ON / 64 Bit / 16 AA - 45 Average FPS

DX9 / Vsync Off / 64 Bit / No AA - 71/72 Average FPS
DX9 / Vsync Off / 64 Bit / 16 AA - 71/72 Average FPS
DX9 VSYNC ON / 64 Bit / 16 AA - 60 Average FPS

There you go... Come on ATI 9.2 Drivers!

People have been saying that ATI drivers would help performance for months now; give it up already, it aint happening.

This. When the game first came out it had a pretty bad memory leak. Its not very well done. Its not too bad for Cryteks first "on its own" engine.

Just give it a bit and maybe it will mature. But you wont see it in Crysis as they are not doing anymore updates (from what I have read) to the original Crysis. So its kinda stuck where it is.
