Now 1920x1200 is the most preferred monitor resolution (next to to 1920x1080). Here's where the CPU starts to matter less and less, and where the GPU gets increasingly more important. The irony is always the same, bang for buck wise a cheapo CPU will get you the better deal. Hence for hefty gaming the graphics card is way more important then the processor.
And at a monitor resolution of 2560x1600 we see that the CPU doesn't really matter that much anymore, the GPUs are completely underpowered here, running at 100%
Crysis 2 DX11 VGA and CPU performance benchmarks Crysis 2 launched earlier this year I have to admit, I was a little ticked off that the game was only a DX9 title. Hence I did not even bother to purchase it. However a week and a half ago Crytek released a new 1.9 patch, that and bringing DirectX 11 towards the game. And yet another patch was released, a high-resolution texture package. The end-result even baffled a graphics monger like yours truly. Today well be looking at game performance with a graphics card or sixteen. Next to that we'll also have a peek at CPU scaling a little to see on what platform the game runs best.
