We’re big fans of visual quality, so missing details in the image above were somewhat of a shock to us. Then again, Crysis only exists as a benchmark for most users, having been abandoned by many gamers in favor of more modern first-person shooters.
None of the integrated solutions are able to play Crysis, even at 800x600 (let alone the 1280x720 target we set for “casual” gaming on a home theater display). A lack of playability diminishes the ION 2’s win.
The ION 2 stays in the lead through our highest unplayable resolution.
