First Crysis 2 GPU Benchmarks Released
  1 / 3    
Hey all,

We recently posted the first Crysis 2 GPU benchmarks: http://www.geforce.com/#/Optimize/Guides/crysis-2-benchmarks

Keep in mind that these are single player benchmarks for a near finalized build of the game, and not the multiplayer demo (which you can download here: http://www.geforce.com/#/News/articles/crysis-2-demo)

Anyways, have a look through the various benchmarks, and let us know what you think about the game's performance. Do you think Crytek did a good job at optimizing the engine?

man here is where I wish I was in US where I could step-up my EVGA GTX 460 to a 560 Ti or maybe even a 570.
My current GTX 460 isn't that bad but I just wanted more FPS out of it on hardcore level in Crysis 2.
I will still play it on hardcore because from the charts there it shows at 1920 x 1200 I can get 30FPS+ on average.

Now my question is, is the GTX 460 being used is it the none-overclocked version. By that I mean is the clocks the same as the GTX 460 on the Nvidia site [url="http://www.nvidia.com/object/product-geforce-gtx-460-us.html"]here[/url]?

If it is then I should get even more performance out of my card given that its overclocked to 800MHz core where as the one on the Nvidia site is at 675MHz. Only if thats the case then I should probably get better performance on average compared to those charts at hardcore level.

The lack of vRAM on the 560 Ti really shows itself at the 2560x1600 resolution... glad I play at 1080p, looks like 2 580s will have a field day with that game... which is semi-disappointing, I expected it to be as hard to run as Crysis was on my 8800Ultras back in the day. Ran well but it sure as heck was 60+fps constantly.

Hopefully someone like Guru3d.com will do a review of Crysis 2 with OCed and non-OCed cards, to give us an idea of how much effect OCing has on the game. I remember though that Crysis liked OCed GPUs as long as they were rock stable, and saw 5-10fps increases if you got the clocks up good enough, so I would assume that Crysis 2 will be the same since it's based off the same engine (albeit a newer version)

yup lets hope so /happy.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':happy:' />
When TechReport was doing the review on the GTX 560 Ti, in the review there was a normal 460 1GB and there was an overclocked version at 810MHz and that showed a good view of the difference between the two at different applications. And if their review is any good I say that overclock gave slight improvement.
Lets hope its the same with Crysis 2 /smile2.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':))' />

Goddess you mean the lack of vRAM on the GTX 460. Because from what I can see from the charts the 560 Ti is doing alright. But if you look at the GTX 460 it is hardly ahead of the GTX 260 at all levels of detail, hardcore, advanced or gamer.
To me it seems the GTX 460 is lacking behind. But the GTX 560 Ti is actually not doing that bad.
Maybe the GTX 460 used here is the 768MB version.
Can someone please confirm this. I had a quick scan again of the whole article and I dont see anywhere it mentions the vRam on the 460

Hi jthang
I have seen you have created multiple threads of this topic on different areas of this forums.
May I suggest locking the other ones and giving a link to this from the other ones so that all discussions of this topic happen in one area.
To me that seems better as all participants will discuss this in one place.
Thanks

Ok, so for those of us who can't afford the latest and greatest parts, what kind of performance could one with just a regular quad core (say a Q9400), 4 gigs of ddr3 ram and gtx 460 get? I figure around 30, maybe 40 fps on gamer at 1650x1050

Heres some in-game screenies from my setup on Hardcore @ 1920x1080 - with FPS shown. (SLI GTX580s | i7 950 @ 3.8GHz)

Keep in mind this is just DX9.

Yet to see below 90FPS.
