Far Cry
If you've been on top of the gaming scene, you probably know that Far Cry is one of the most visually impressive games to be released on the PC to date.  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 this review with a custom-recorded demo run taken in the "Catacombs" area checkpoint, at 1024 x 768 and 1600 x 1200 without AA or Aniso Filtering enabled and then with 4X AA and 8X Aniso enabled together.


With the exception of our second run at 1024x768, the results in Far Cry matched what we saw in Unreal Tournament 2004 almost exactly.  The ATi X800XL outpaced the Asus Extreme AX800XL in that first run by just over three frames per second, and the GeForce 6800GT trailed far behind.  From there, all of the other runs had ATi's X800XL card in the lead, followed closely by Asus' model, and then the 6800GT.  The performance difference between the two X800XL's was in the range of 2 - 4% which is fairly negligible.
