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 Asus EAH5870 put up some great numbers in the FarCry 2 benchmark. Here, the dual-GPU powered Radeon HD 4870 X2 and GTX 295 pull ahead at the lower resolution, but only the top-of-the-line GeForce is able to hold onto its lead once the resolution is increased to 2560x1600.
