Real-time editing, bump mapping, static lights, network system, integrated physics system, shaders, shadows, and a dynamic music system are just some of the state of-the-art features that the CryENGINE offers. The game was set to Ultra quality and the Ubisoft's Regulator and Training demos were run.

The PowerColor X1550 512MB videocard provides decent framerates at 10224x768 if you wanted to play FarCry. 1600x1200 is a bit too much for this GPU however.

Framerates in SplinterCell: Chaos Theory at 1024x768 with SM1 are not too bad. The game has borderline acceptable framerates. At higher resolutions or with SM3.0 enabled, framerates are just too low.
