Graphics (VGA) performance Recording Level and IQ settings

Before we begin with the graphics performance tests a little explanation. We use a time based measurement based upon framerate recording. The test is a representative yet stringent on the GPU. Our settings will be twofold.:

Graphics test mode 1: Very High - FXAA enabled



Graphics test mode 2: High - FXAA enabled



We do two modes today as mid-range card will struggle hard at Very high Quality settings. FXAA we feel is an excellent balance in-between memory usage and quality. The graphics cards used for this article are: 

GeForce GTX 480
Geforce GTX 560 Ti
GeForce GTX 570
GeForce GTX 590
Geforce GTX 650 Ti
Geforce GTX 660
Geforce GTX 660 Ti
Geforce GTX 670
GeForce GTX 680
GeForce GTX 690
GeForce GTX Titan
Radeon HD 5870
Radeon HD 6850
Radeon HD 6950
Radeon HD 6970
Radeon HD 6990
Radeon HD 7770 GHz
Radeon HD 7850
Radeon HD 7870
Radeon HD 7950 GHz
Radeon HD 7970
Radeon HD 7970 GHz

System setup

  • Our test setup is based on Intel X79 (MSI Big bang XPower II) with 8 GB of DDR3 ( Corsair 1600 MHz) memory. The processor is a Core i7 3960X clocked at 4600 MHz.  
  • We use Windows 7 64-bit SP1 all patched up.Each card runs on the same PC with the same operating system clone. GeForce cards use the latest 314.07 and 314.09 drivers (download) and for AMD Radeon graphics cards we used the latest 13.2 Beta build 6 driver (download). Both NVIDIA and AMD have released these drivers being optimized for Crysis 3.

Let's head onwards to the next page where we'll look at the High Quality performance first. 

The Test

If you like to try a test run, replicate this level. Make a run in the begining of the level upto the stairs and then until the animated sequence.
