GeForce GTS 450 O/C Roundup: Six Custom-Tuned Cards

Benchmark Results: Crysis

Crysis tears up weak graphics cards and weak processors, yet the ultimate proof of graphics advancement will come when onboard graphics can achieve playable frame rate in this elder title. Until then, we have the GeForce GTS 450 and an overclocked Core i3 CPU!

We actually kept track of minimum frame rate in our test notes and the good news is yes, it can play Crysis, even at Very High details. Then again, the only resolution where we saw that happen was at 1280x720, with AA disabled, at a minimum frame rate of 21 FPS.

Asus’s overclocking earns its buyers an extra 3 FPS minimum, which might be important when there are so few FPS to spare.
