When Crytek released Crysis back in 2007 the game was so demanding even on high-end systems that it quickly became the de facto benchmark for PC gamers. With Crysis 3 the developers raised the bar even higher. The game features advanced graphical effects like volumetric fog shadows, dynamic vegetation, area lighting. To compare GTX 1060 9Gbps vs RX 580 we are using the train-yard rail sequence from the game's 'Welcome to the Jungle' mission as Psycho and Prophet spears through an army of CELL soldiers.
With this classic shooter the GTX 1060 manages to score 5% higher average FPS compared to the RX 580.
