Ah, the ultimate yardstick. At High quality settings, Crysis is actually fairly playable at 2560x1600. Above that, it looks like our Core i7 platform is holding back performance, since 1680x1050 and 1920x1200 are quite close.
Nvidia still has a problem at 2560x1600 with 4xAA enabled—we’ve seen this one over and over in a number of different games. Interestingly, the two GTX 275s aren't as hampered at that demanding setting as the 295, though none of the arrangements are playable anyway.
On the other hand, you could probably swing 1680x1050 or 1920x1200 and still see reasonable frame rates. At both resolutions, the GeForce GTX 295 serves up the slowest performance, albeit only slightly.
