After careful consideration I have decided to transfer all hardware review activities to a new domain.  I purchased 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

    Crysis Warhead

    Crysis Warhead is the same game as the first Crysis.  The only real difference is that it's 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 DirectX 10 game that has no mercy on any graphics card to-date.
    All of the settings per resolution are below, and Anti-Aliasing is turned off during testing.

    2560x1600: Mainstream
    1920x1200: Gamer
    1680x1050: Gamer
    We all know the phrase "But can it run Crysis?"  And the phrase is well deserved.  Here we can see that Crysis has claimed another victim. However, at the lowest resolution, the GTS 450 does pretty well. The GTS 450 falls behind the GTS 250 and the Radeon HD 5750 at higher resolutions, but does take the lead at 1680 x 1050.
