One of the most eagerly anticipated titles of 2011, Crysis 2 promises a great single player campaign, first class visuals and an in depth multi-player mode. Our testing is based on the final version of the game rather than the multi-player demo.
Testing was performed at 1280×768 and high in game settings.
The 6450 is designed as an ideal upgrade for those who are looking to upgrade from an on-board GPU but before we look at the benefits of that it is worth taking a look at how the card performs in a few of the latest releases, starting with Crysis 2.
In this test the 6450 performs well at 1280×768 with high settings. Some users may want to tweak further but overall the gameplay was ok in this game, surprisingly so for such a low cost card.
Here is how the game looks at our tested settings.
PowerColor offer their own branded version of the liquid cooled R9 295 X2… and now for those who want a similar level of framerate they have their air cooled dual core R9 290X with Devil 13 branding.
