Crysis Warhead is a first-person shooter developed by Crytek Budapest. It is a standalone title following a parallel story on the same island featured in Crysis. For all tests the graphical settings were set to Enthusiast with DX10 enabled and vertical sync disabled.
Crysis Warhead gives the HD 4890 a solid start to the gaming tests with a typical 5% average FPS lead over the GTX 260 216sp. Interesting to note, though, were the minimum FPS; the GTX 260 216sp maintains acceptable minimum FPS while both the HD 4890 and HD 4870x2 trip over themselves with the HD 4870x2 managing an 0FPS minimum.
