Benchmark Results: Crysis And F1 2010

While many synthetic benchmark designers set out to become thestandard by which PC hardware is judged, Crysis got there by accident. This real-world game reflects what happens when software developers push the limit of visual reality without also pushing the limits of code optimization.

We didn’t expect to see any noticeable performance differences between similar platforms, and we didn’t, with exception to a few hiccups in F1 2010.

Though that game isn’t the perfect choice for consistency, the small differences seen in it make an even smaller contribution to this article’s performance averages.
