THE GRAFICAL PART 

In this subsection of our review, the main graphical aspects of this game are revealed. Particular attention is paid to the version of the graphics engine used, the version of the API used, graphics settings and the quality of the development of the main visual aspects.

SUPPORTED OC AND GRAPHICS API

Crysis: Remastered 2 is supported on Windows 10/11.

steam

The priority and primary graphics API for Crysis: Remastered 2 is DX 11 .

GAME ENGINE

Crysis 2, originally released in 2011, became a landmark moment in the Crysis series, thanks to its innovative gameplay, amazing graphics and compelling storyline. Players were impressed with how Crytek used CryEngine 3 to bring their vision of modern military technology and urban combat to life. In 2021, Crytek decided to update this classic action game with Crysis 2 Remastered.

The development of Crysis 2 Remastered was aimed at improving the existing elements of the game and introducing new technologies to improve the graphical presentation and performance.

Crytek has implemented temporal anti-aliasing, which improves the graphical experience and reduces the effects of flickering and smearing. Vegetation shading improvements and screen space shadows have been implemented to make shadows from small details more realistic. The addition of the screen space global illumination and voxel-based global illumination effects significantly improved the visual representation of scene illumination.

Improved shadow technology, as well as the introduction of shadows on glass and shadows on particles, created a deeper and more impressive picture. At the same time, improved lighting and cubemap reflections and image based lighting effects made the game look brighter and more realistic.

Crytek has paid close attention to detail, updating about 500 of the 2,000 materials and textures. 38 core assets, 31 vehicles, 18 weapons, and 12 character models have also been improved, adding depth and detail to the game world.

Crysis 2 Remastered also includes around 150 unique CPU and GPU performance improvements to ensure a smoother and more stable game experience. Animation of weapons and water splashes at 60 fps made the movements smoother and more realistic. Support for 60 fps and resolutions up to 4K made it possible to enjoy the game in the highest quality both on PC and on the latest generation of consoles.

Exclusive to the PC version, Crysis 2 Remastered features water shadows, software and hardware ray tracing, and DLSS support. All these features improve the graphic quality and performance of the game on modern graphics cards, allowing players to immerse themselves in the game world even deeper.

All in all, Crysis 2 Remastered is a well thought out and polished update to the original game. The introduction of modern graphics and performance technologies has allowed Crytek to take the visual and technical quality of the game to a new level, while maintaining the unique atmosphere of the original.

MSI Afterburner

 
All video cards were tested at maximum graphics quality by MSI Afterburner. The purpose of the test is to determine how video cards from different manufacturers behave under the same conditions. Below is a video of the test segment

 Our video cards were tested at resolutions of 1920x1080 , 2560x1440 and 3840x2160 at maximum graphics quality settings.

GPU TEST

In the test of video cards, the default resolution is 1920x1080, other resolutions are added and removed manually. You can also remove and add any positions of video cards. You can also select any of our test processors from the list in the drop-down menu, comparing its performance with the given video card tests (by default, the most productive solution is selected). The test is carried out on the most productive CPU in this game and is scaled to other processors, taking into account their testing on NVIDIA and AMD video cards.

At a resolution of 1920x1080, an average FPS of 25 frames was shown by video cards of the Radeon RX 6600 or GeForce RTX 2060 level . A minimum FPS of at least 25 frames can be provided by video cards of the level Radeon RX 6600 or GeForce RTX 2060 . A comfortable average FPS of 60 frames can be provided by Radeon RX 6600 or GeForce RTX 2080 solutions .

A comfortable average FPS of 60 frames can be provided by Radeon RX 6700 XT or GeForce RTX 3080 solutions .

At a resolution of  3840x2160,  an average FPS of 25 frames was shown by video cards of the level Radeon RX 6700 XT or GeForce RTX 2080A minimum FPS of at least 25 frames can be provided by video cards of the level Radeon RX 6700 XT or GeForce RTX 3060 Ti . A comfortable average FPS of 60 frames can be provided by Radeon RX 6950 XT or GeForce RTX 4080 solutions .

Certainly, AMD graphics cards deliver superior gaming performance, and the 7900 XTX had a lot of potential to deliver. However, it seems that the software developers were so impressed with the individual performance that they did not even consider it necessary to test the game on the latest RDNA 3 video cards...

VIDEO MEMORY CONSUMPTION

aft

Testing of the video memory consumed by the game was carried out by the  MSI Afterburner program. The results on video cards from AMD and NVIDIA at resolutions of  1920x1080, 2560x1440 and 3840x2160 with various anti-aliasing settings were taken as the indicator. By default, the graph displays the most up-to-date solutions. Other graphics cards are added and removed from the chart at the reader's request.
