Benchmark Results: Modern Warfare 2 And Crysis
We expected good results from pairing Call of Duty with SLI, and the GeForce GTX 470 graphics cards of our $2,000 PC certainly don't disappoint. What appears in the chart to be a CPU limit at stock speed is somewhat eased by overclocking, but it’s hard to call an average 156.8 frames per second (FPS) at our highest settings and lowest clock speeds a limitation.
We can’t push the detail and quality levels any higher than this, and the worst average we saw was 136.1 FPS at the $2,000 system’s stock speed.
The overclocked $3,000 PC has an average lead at Crysis High Quality settings, but nearly tanks at our target 2560x1600 resolution. Meanwhile, the overclocked $2,000 machine is completely playable at our highest test resolution and Very High-quality presets.
