FarCry v1.4

Performance Comparisons with FarCry v1.4

If you've been on top of the gaming scene for some time, you probably know that FarCry was one of the most visually impressive games to be released on the PC in the last few years.  Courtesy of its proprietary engine, dubbed "CryEngine" by its developers, FarCry's game-play is enhanced by Polybump mapping, advanced environment physics, destructible terrain, dynamic lighting, motion-captured animation, and surround sound. Before titles such as Half-Life 2 and Doom 3 hit the scene, FarCry gave us a taste of what was to come in next-generation 3D gaming on the PC. We benchmarked the graphics cards in this article with a fully patched version of FarCry using a custom-recorded demo run taken in the "Catacombs" area checkpoint. The tests were run at various resolutions with 4X AA and 16X aniso enabled concurrently.

We saw a similar trend to 3DMark06's with our custom FarCry benchmark. Here again, the Asus EN8800GTS falls inline with the reference GeForce 8800 GTS, just behind the factory overclocked XFX model. Regardless of its placement though, all of the cards put up triple digit framerates at both resolutions which somewhat negates the performance advantage at these resolutions.
