Crysis 2 Benchmarks

Crytec's intensive ego-shooter, Crysis 2, takes everything a high-end laptop graphics card has to offer and still hungers for more. In the following article, we will describe the hardware requirements of this game with various benchmarks.

How We Test

We decided to use the first mission from the single-player campaign (submarine scene) as our benchmark sequence. This scene may not be as demanding as the outdoor battles in later missions but it does give us a good idea about the performance. The recording starts as soon as the protagonist looks up at his colleague. After a short briefing, we ran the character down a red-lit corridor. The recording ended each time at the broken pipe.

Analysis of the Benchmarks

Crysis 2 always looks good regardless of what settings we pick. To run the game fluidly with high details at a modest resolution (1024x768 pixels or less), the user will need a middle-class GPU such as the Radeon HD 6650M or the GeForce GT 540M. 

Very high details and a resolution of 1366x768 pixels requires at least a Radeon HD 6770M or a GeForce GeForce GT 555M. 

The Extreme setting with a resolution of 1920x1080 pixels can only be run halfway well on high-end graphic cards such as the Radeon HD 6990M or the GeForce GTX 580M. 

Gamers who want the absolute best (Ultra-Preset + DirectX-11 + High-Res-Textures), need a dual-GPU system with two HD 6990Ms or two GTX 580Ms or a high-end desktop graphics card.

Legend
5Stutters – This game is very likely to stutter and have poor frame rates. Based on all known benchmarks using the specified graphical settings, average frame rates are expected to fall below 25fps
May Stutter – This graphics card has not been explicitly tested on this game. Based on interpolated information from surrounding graphics cards of similar performance levels, stutters and poor frame rates are expected.
30Fluent – Based on all known benchmarks using the specified graphical settings, this game should run at or above 25fps
40Fluent – Based on all known benchmarks using the specified graphical settings, this game should run at or above 35fps
60Fluent – Based on all known benchmarks using the specified graphical settings, this game should run at or above 58fps
May Run Fluently – This graphics card has not been explicitly tested on this game. Based on interpolated information from surrounding graphics cards of similar performance levels, fluent frame rates are expected.
?Uncertain – This graphics card experienced unexpected performance issues during testing for this game. A slower card may be able to achieve better and more consistent frame rates than this particular GPU running the same benchmark scene.
Uncertain – This graphics card has not been explicitly tested on this game and no reliable interpolation can be made based on the performances of surrounding cards of the same class or family.
The value in the fields displays the average frame rate of all values in the database. Move your cursor over the value to see individual results.
