System Builder Marathon, June 2011: $2000 Performance PC

Benchmark Results: Crysis And F1 2010

The most “synthetic” of our real-world benchmarks, due to what appears to be inefficient coding and an inability to scale well, Crysis appears to achieve moderate benefits from the new build’s improved drivers.

Moreover, playing Crysis at Very High quality and 2560x1600 is no problem for either machine.

F1 2010 is also no problem for a pair of Radeon HD 6970s. The previous system’s better overclock beats the new system’s better drivers in this title.
