Crysis Warhead & Far Cry 2 Results

Crysis Warhead saw the Radeon HD 5970 dominating again, and it gets the distinction of being the only single graphics card capable of producing playable frame rates (above 30fps) on the most demanding setting of 1920 x 1440 resolution with anti-aliasing enabled. To add, it was about 30% faster than the GeForce GTX 295. And again, it lost out only to the pair of Radeon HD 5870 cards in CrossFireX configuration.

It was the same story on Far Cry 2, as the Radeon HD 5970 was once again the best performing single graphics card by some distance. Interestingly though, the pair of Radeon HD 5870 graphics cards managed to outperform the new single graphics card king by quite a margin yet in this benchmark.
