After careful consideration I have decided to transfer all hardware review activities to a new domain. I purchased Hardwareasylum.com in 2012 and have been working hard to build a new and improved Ninjalane on that domain. If you are reading this you have reached one of the archived articles, news, projects and/or reviews that were left behind during the site migration.
Please update your bookmarks and be sure to visit the new and improved Ninjalane at Hardwareasylum.com
Gigabyte Radeon HD5670 Video Card ReviewAuthor: Will West
Published: Tuesday, February 09, 2010
Crysis Warhead is the same game as the first Crysis just being told from the point of view of another soldier named Psycho. The character Psycho is on an island just off the coast of China fighting against North Koreans, and some rather cold hearted aliens. Crysis Warhead is a fully fledged DirectX 10 game that has no mercy on any graphics card to date.
Crysis Warfare was tested using the Mainstream setting with no Anti-Aliasing turned on.
Crysis Warfare is still one of those games that take no prisoners on the graphic card market. The Gigabyte Radeon HD5670 shows that is it scaling above the Radeon 4670, but not by much. The more expensive GTS250 shows it power in the 2560x1600 resolution, but loses that gain very sharply to the Radeon HD5670 at the lower resolutions. The scaling of the CrossFire setup is just ugly, but we hope in time drivers will mature more and take care of this situation.
