Crysis warhead: Config delivers better graphics on HD 4870 - benchmarks and comparison shots
In the Crymod forum a mod consisting of three config files has been published. Those files have been optimized for AMD's HD 4870 and are supposed to deliver better graphics and performance.
Since Crymod user GV80 wasn't satisfied with the performance his Radeon HD 4870 delivered with the Enthusiast settings of Crysis Warhead, he created three special configs. They are supposed to be similar to the enthusiast settings in regards of graphics, but run better at the same time. Thereby GV80 paid extra attention to the lighting and the shaders.
We put the three files to the test on a Radeon HD 4870 and made some comparative screenshots. We use the Enthusiast and the Gamer settings for our comparison. You can find all the screenshots in the gallery.
In addition to an Ultra config there are a High and a Medium config too. You can find the files in the Crymod-Forum or you can, as a registered user, download them from our server. All you need to do is copy the "autoexec.cfg” of your choice into your Warhead folder.
