Crysis 5850 fps question

Just got 5850 and played some crysis to see how it would run.I tried max everything 8xaa 1680x1050 and I only get 22-25 fps. Are these the fps I should be getting? The card is at stock reference speeds

With 8x AA that seems about right, crysis on very high is very demanding on the hardware, switch to just high settings and you will get vastly improved performance, on par with what most other games run at when fully maxed out.

You can see with no AA its only hitting 35, so adding 8x AA, you see a pretty decent hit down to 32 in the benches there.
Also- what is your AF setting?

The CPU setup for that test is;
"Intel Core i7-975 Extreme (Bloomfield) 3.33 GHz, 6.4 GT/s, 8 MB L3 Cache, power-saving settings disabled
Overclocked to 4 GHz (25 * 160 MHz)"
It is going to show better results than OP's

A single 5850 at 1080p with max everything on Crysis should get about 22-25 FPS. How do I know? I owed one. Ran an i5 750 @ 3.7GHZ with it, was pissed I couldn't max out Crysis- soooo I bought another for crossfire.

That is a good result. An overclock would get you a few frames then.

Rolli- yeah, with a 975-X it'll be a little faster, which is why I was saying the OP was performing about as expected, especially with a q9550 at stock. A bit of an OC and he'd probably hit closer to those benchmarks.

FYI at that reso rather put up effects and AF than AA, AA is only for low res monitors.
