Today’s alternative hand-picked build starts off by scoring lower frame rates than the original configuration in Crysis, but wins at higher resolutions. Reduced memory performance is likely the bottleneck at lower resolutions, but we doubt anyone building with these cards would choose anything less than 2560x1600 (or 1280x1024 x 3 in Eyefinity) anyway.
Increased details put the new system in an even better light, though the addition of AA would be required for a truly impressive lead.
F1 2010 starts off with even larger bottlenecks to overcome when using its High quality preset, again handing the win to the system with the less-powerful graphics cards and faster memory settings.
Even at Ultra quality and 8x AA, the new system requires a super-high resolution to take the lead. Of course, both systems were designed to support those high resolutions.
