Crysis Remastered's Patch 3.0 is gamechanging

Earlier this week, Crytek and Saber Interactive launched Crysis Remastered's 3.0 update, promising users "Significant GPU & CPU performance improvements", enhancements to the game's DLSS implementation and more. We've taken some time to test the game's new update, and to say the least, it transforms Crysis' performance profile, specailly on the CPU front. 

Crysis Remastered is a demanding game, and the game has already recieved several performance boosting patches. That said, the game remained a perforance hog, especially on the CPU front. Even which today's highest-end CPUs, high framerates within the game's ultra-demanding "Can it Run Crysis?" mode couldn't run the game at a steady 60+ FPS. Now, the game runs much faster. 

Today, we have tested Crysis Remastered's 3.0 update and compared our performance results to our legacy Crysis Remastered performance data. Using tis data, we will show you how Crysis Remastered's performance has improved over time, and why now is the best time to play Crysis Remastered on PC.
