Crysis 2 Goes Direct X 11: The Ultra Upgrade, Benchmarked
By

We won’t be using the canned benchmark included in Crysis 2 for our testing; instead we’re playing an actual level to better show the kind of performance a player can really expect. Our overclocked 4 GHz Core i5-2500K removes any reasonable CPU bottleneck from the equation and focuses performance on the graphics cards.
