I take it the iGPU had to be disabled based on the 7750?

methuselah

Yes but what's really impressive is how he can play Crysis 3 on Ultra and pour nitrogen on the proc @ the same time!

The AMD 7750 is a $95 graphics card. I doubt you can play Crysis with it at any CPU speed.

The 7750 can run the game maxed out at 720p under XP, but the 8800gt (which was $150 six years ago) can almost do the same. The six year-old budget card has twice the bus width and nearly twice as many texturing units as the new budget card. If we could buy chips w/ the same architecture and die size (nearly 500mm2) for the same amount of money today, we would be looking at a $150 card that performs closer to a 780GTX than a 680. The tech isn't moving along as fast as the sticker prices or the hype.

Crysis, crysis 2 & crysis 3 goes very well on an AMD 7750 2GB DDR3
