And here is the page which list the PC setup (Intel Core i7-965 Extreme Edition), driver version and where they stated:
We selected the highest possible level of detail in each game using standard tools provided by the game itself from the gaming menu. The games configuration files weren’t modified in any way, because the ordinary user doesn’t have to know how to do it. We made a few exceptions for selected games if that was necessary. We are going to specifically dwell on each exception like that later on in our article.
Very interesting, but I'm also shocked. The 4890 and 4850x2 perform better than the GTX 285...in Crysis!?!
Nearly every other benchmark I have seen, the GTX 285 has performaned better than even the 4870x2 at Crysis.
I feel something is a little
Two 4870s should easily dominate a single GTX285, since two 4870s are comparable to two GTX260s.
Two 4850s or 9800GTXs should also be better than a single GTX285.
Two 4830s or two 9800GTs would perform around the same level or slightly worse than a GTX285.
The only situation where a GTX285 would perform better than 2 4850s or 2 4870s would be if Xfire wasn't enabled, and for the 4850x2 or 4870x2, if they were still using old drivers that wasn't yet supported by ATI.
Well,i've played Crysis and Warhead alot and i must admit its not a very good optimize game because i have downloaded a config called CCC 2.1 for crysis and CCC 3.0 for Warhead and it makes the graphic better and u get more FPS too,i myself compared Very high quality with CCC (in both games) and the Graphic quality was better in CCC and my FPS was 15-20 more(than Default Very high)
