The GTX 590 vs. the HD 6990 – only One is “the World’s Fastest video card”
Crysis Warhead is a science fiction first-person shooter computer game developed by the Hungarian studio Crytek and published by Electronic Arts. Crysis Warhead is a stand-alone expansion to Crysis that was released in 2008. It is optimized better than the original Crysis to look as good with less hardware resources required to render it.
We test first at
1920×1200 with 2xAA/16xAF with maxed-out in-game “Enthusiast” (very high) settings:
And now the same settings at 1680×1050:
The GTX 560 Ti is slightly faster than the HD 6870 and as in Crysis, we see all of our cards scaling well. This time the HD 6990 beats the GTX 590 until the highest resolution when the situation becomes reversed.
