Test Setup:

Athlon XP Barton 3200+
2.2 Ghz 400 FSB
1 Gig DDR400 (Dual Channel)
Geforce 6800 Non Ultra (325/850)
Albatron KX18D Pro II (Nforce 2 400 Ultra)
DirectX 9.0C

Conclusion: The spots I have noticed that show the most improvement is where Heavy Geometry is being rendered. Also anywhere there is grass being rendered. Grass areas have seen a performance improvement of 10-20%.
Looks pretty good considering the Crytek fixed the 6800U IQ problems and the 6800U still received a significant increase in performance.
