Crysis is getting old, and the updated stand-alone Warhead expansion is supposedly more efficient. Yet we decided to “chase the dream” of smooth gaming at 2560x1600 and super-high details once more.
It appears that Nvidia finally fixed its drivers, reducing the 3-way SLI penalty for Crysis at 2560x1600 pixels. Four graphics processors still stumble over each other at this setting, however.
With AA enabled and AF forced through the drivers, the GTX 295 is still unplayable at a resolution of 2560x1600. This is one of the few places Radeon HD 4870 X2 graphics in CrossFireX shines, but the winning result has little significance.
