Benchmarks and Comparisons With Far Cry
DX9 effects galore.

Far Cry
If you've been on top of the gaming scene, you probably know that Far Cry is one of the most impressive game and to be released on the PC to date.  While we peer at leaked versions of Doom 3 and video clips of Half Life 2, Far Cry gives us a taste of what is to come in next generation 3D Gaming on the PC.  We benchmarked the graphics cards in our test, with a custom recorded demo run taken in the "Catacombs" area checkpoint, at various resolutions without AA or Aniso Filtering enabled and then with 4X AA, with 4X AA and 8X Aniso and lastly with 4X AA and 16X Aniso enabled.


The benchmark results using our custom FarCry demo look much like what we saw with Unreal Tournament 2004.  In half of the tests (No AA and 4X AA, at both resolutions), the 16-Pipeline GeForce 6800 GT cards held onto sizable leads, hovering around 10%.  In the remaining, more taxing, half of the tests (4X AA + 8X Aniso and 4X AA + 16X Aniso), however, the Asus AX800 Pro pulled way ahead of the competition.  In some cases outperforming the second place BFG GeForce 6800 GT OC by as much as 40%.
