Benchmark Results: Crysis
Same story, different game. Crysis slants toward Nvidia’s GeForce GTS 250. But at what price? If you cherry-pick the lowest-price card on Newegg, you’re looking at $120. Prices around $129 and $139 are more common, though.
Once again, the Radeon HD 4770 comes close to ATI’s Radeon HD 4850, sliding past the Radeon HD 4830. With that said, Crysis is still pretty ridiculous, even with AA and AF disabled. Really, 1280x1024 is the only fairly-smooth resolution with High detail settings.
At 1280x1024, the scores with 4xAA are fairly close. Turning up the resolution, however, shows the 1 GB GTS 250 a tad quicker. The Radeon HD 4770 actually slows down to the level of a Radeon HD 4830 as it’s taxed more intensively.
Couldn't say it better, myself.
Looks to be a pretty good card, but nothing spectacular. 40nm is nice, a little cheaper HD 4850 (fewer FPS, too), but all in all, nicely done.
I wonder who'll sell more, now, the 4850 or the 4770?
ATI is leading us into graphics nirvana.
great card for 16x10 resolution. good job ati, you've done more damage to nvidia in the past year than they've done to you in the pass 3-4
just checked newegg and they all have aftermarket coolers on them... wow *_*
Nah, they're reference coolers from AMD. From what I heard, AMD gave the AIB partners a choice between the dual slot and the, for lack of a better term, uglier cooler. Apparently the "uglier" one is cheaper so that's what you're probably going see for now.
