The new and popular title is daunting from a graphics point of view. What do you need really? As a result, how will it perform on a selection of different graphics cards? This review will cover all these basics and then more so you know what choice to make either graphics card or in-game settings wise.
Above, the time demo we use to measure game performance, this is a generic recording not specifically done with the graphics card solution tested in this article. This is the Welcome to the Jungle level. The test run applied is fairly stringent, harsh and really only suited for high-end DX 11 class graphics cards of 2012 and 2013 in combination with our image quality settings.
Crysis 2; we apply everything. Image quality settings:
Very High Quality settings
Welcome to the Jungle level
And below, a comparative chart, any card at 19x12 will get a very rough beating from the game. And also let me just state... DX11 / HQ Texture mode and Ultra settings are not a requirement, but as a PC gamer I expect you like something better than console quality, right?
So our image quality settings are a bit too much for our 139 EUR card. You will need to drop down to high quality mode with preferably no AA to be able to play the title with more acceptable performance. This was to be expected of course. Crossfire manages quite well though.

Club3D Radeon HD 7850 Royal Queen review Club3D jumped the 7800 bandwagon as well with several models, and for this review we'll be looking at their Radeon HD 7850 Royal Queen edition which comes with 1 GB of graphics memory. The product comes default in many ways, except the cooler. Club3D uses a small PCB and pretty slim dual-slot cooler making the card very easy to install. The graphics card is equipped with one 6-pin PCIe power connector. As mentioned the card comes default/reference clocked at 860 MHz and the memory is clocked at a 4800 MHz reference as well.
