FarCry 2

Like the original, FarCry 2 is one of the more visually impressive games to be released on the PC to date. Courtesy of the Dunia game engine developed by Ubisoft, FarCry 2's game-play is enhanced by advanced environment physics, destructible terrain, high resolution textures, complex shaders, realistic dynamic lighting, and motion-captured animations.  We benchmarked the graphics cards in this article with a fully patched version of FarCry 2, using one of the built-in demo runs recorded in the "Ranch" map.  The test results shown here were run at various resolutions with 4X AA enabled.

The new AMD Radeon HD 6990 put up some impressive scores in the FarCry 2 benchmark. Here, AMD's new flagship graphics card blew past all of the competition by a wide margin.  The Radeon HD 6990 was between 43% and 65% faster than a GTX 580 and between 79% and 92% faster than the Radeon HD 6970.
