32-Bit CPU Gaming Benchmarks: Crysis

Crysis 1.2

Source: Electronic Arts

Crysis is a science fiction first-person shooter developed by Crytek. Crysis uses Microsoft's new API, DirectX 10 for graphics rendering, and includes the new engine—the CryEngine 2—that is the successor to Far Cry's CryEngine. CryEngine 2 is among the first engines to use the DirectX 10 framework of Windows Vista, but can also run using DirectX 9, both on Vista and Windows XP.

Higher results are better.

Real-world gaming is quite a different story. Crysis is much more attuned to memory performance and CPU clockspeed (and even more so to videocard performance), and the Athlon II X4 620 isn't particularly gifted in either of those areas.

Performance in Crysis is not a strong suit for the Athlon II X4 620, under Windows Vista or Windows 7. The clock speeds and lack of L3 cache really hurt the Athlon II X4 620 here.
