Contemporary Graphics Cards performance in Crysis 2

Crysis 2

tested by xbitlabs

Remarkably, the difference between AMD and Nvidia solutions is really minuscule in this particular market segment. The now outdated Radeon HD 5770 stands its ground and mirrors GeForce GTX 550 Ti performance across all resolutions.

The game clearly prefers Nvidia over AMD, as both Radeon HD 6950 and Radeon HD 6870 are struggling to catch up. It seems that Crysis 2 favors the now outdated 5-way VLIW architecture used in the Radeon HD 68×0 graphics cards as there is really a surprisingly small difference in performance between Cayman and Barts based products.
