I'm pretty sure 8-Pack has already done so over the last couple of days, breaking the Firestrike record

But can it run Crysis?

Will be interesting to see how many records this card will break over the next few days/weeks. Most likely all of them
It's not badly priced either, I was expecting it to be around £100 more than a standard 780 but it's only £40 more. If you have enough to spend £550 on a GPU then £40 more isn't going to be a big deal to you.

Let the classified or lightning argument begin..

I am going to assume that on LN2 the lightning will be better but for the average user on air or water I think it could be very close
