DX11: Crysis 2 - High Res Textures
Crysis 2 then. With the recent DirectX 11 patch and that High Resolution Texture pack (download) we all know one thing, Crysis has become the best looking game to date. DirectX 11 hardware tessellation is the headline feature, but the Ultra Upgrade also introduces soft shadows with variable penumbra, improved water rendering, and particle motion blur and shadowing. Having been originally omitted from CryEngine 3, Parallax Occlusion Mapping has been reintroduced, as has full-resolution High Dynamic Range motion blur, making the games use of camera panning more detailed and defined. To improve performance further, hardware-based occlusion culling has been implemented, resulting in performance improvements from objects and scenery out of view not being rendered.
The test run apply is stringent, harsh and really only suited for high-end DX 11 class graphics cards of 2011 and 2012.
Crysis 2; we apply everything. Image quality settings:
- DirectX 11
- High Resolution Texture Pack
- Ultra Quality settings
- 4x AA
- Level: Times Square (2 minute custom time demo)
And though scaling is less interesting at 1920x1200, the fact remains that the performance shown here is just awesome. Go higher in resolution and scaling will settle at 2x.
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 Times Square level.
Today a review the EVGA GeForce GTX 780 SC ACX edition. The Superclocked model comes with a nice factory tweak and that all new Sleeve bearing fan based ACX cooler. Overall the card is almost as fast as a GeForce GTX Titan, 100% cool and 100% silent. We test the product with the hottest games like Metro: Last light, Battlefield 3, Sleeping Dogs, Far Cry 3, Medal of Honor Warfighter, Hitman Absolution and many more.
EVGA GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost SC edition review
In this article we review the EVGA GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost SC edition review with that SC for superclocked. The product is fairly reference looking but does come with EVGA's own styled cooler, it has 2GB of memory with both that memory and the core baseclock slightly overclocked quite significant.
EVGA GeForce GTX 660 SC review
We review the EVGA GeForce GTX 660 SC aka SuperClocked edition. as the name implies it is already factory overclocked for you with a 1046 MHz baseclock that can boost towards 1111 MHz.
EVGA GeForce GTX 660 Ti SC review
We have another GeForce GTX 660 Ti review for you today as we'll put the GeForce GTX 660 Ti from EVGA to the test, it's their factory clocked version, the GeForce GTX 660 Ti SuperClocked (SC) version.So it isn't hard to understand that the factory overclocked GeForce 660 Ti SKUs will run fairly close to the GeForce GTX 670 (reference clocked) and maybe Let's have a peek.
