This game is tested at the High level of detail, excepting the Shader option which is set at Very High. This way we try to achieve a compromise between image quality and speed.
The GeForce 9600 GT SLI subsystem is unrivalled here, but its average speed is hardly above 30fps, which is far from comfortable. Alas, you can’t avoid slowdowns in especially heavy scenes when playing Crysis at high graphics quality settings.
Enemy Territory: Quake Wars
The frame rate is fixed at 30fps in this game as this is the rate at which the physical model is being updated at the server. Thus, this 30fps speed is the required minimum for playing the game.
The performance growth is amazing in Quake Wars, being over 100% in some modes. On the other hand, this doesn’t affect your playing comfort in comparison with the GeForce 8800 GTS 512MB or the 9800 GTX due to the frame rate limiter.
