Far Cry


If you've been on top of the gaming scene for some time, you probably know that FarCry is one of the most visually impressive games to be released for the PC. 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 review with the Ubisoft Regulator demo, at various resolutions without anti-aliasing or anisotropic filtering enabled, and then with 4X AA and 8X aniso enabled concurrently.

Both the ASUS Extreme N6600GT Silencer, and the HIS Radeon X700 Pro, put up some solid frame rates in Far Cry. Without the strain of Anti Aliasing and Anisotropic Filtering, the Asus Extreme N6600GT Silencer comes out ahead by about 8FPS at 1024x768, and by about 7FPS at 1280x1024. When both AA and AF are applied though, the performance gap shrinks to around 1-3FPS.
