Crysis is a 1st person action adventure shooter that is quite possibly one of the most photo realistic games to ever come out on any console yet. A real competitor, this game doesn’t just wrestle with the graphics, but overall system requirements as well and will make a perfect test solution to our gaming benchmark.
From the chart above, the memory most definitely had an effect on the fps of Crysis. While Crysis is primarily a GPU centered game, the active loading constantly and storing of temporary operations and calculations data places a certain level of importance with the memory and how fast the CPU is able to process this information for the PCI-E 2.0 x 16 slots. The average fps increased about 3.5% with the peak being its highest at an average 46.2 frames per second as a result of the memory modules. This test specification clearly shows that while the other factors remain constant throughout, memory usage has an effect when coupled with an enthusiast memory such as the Crucial DDR3 PC3-8500.
