||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 1368x768 resolution, DirectX 10 enabled, 4x Anti-aliasing, and different render quality settings. |
Even with the settings cranked up, we achieved playable frame rates in FC2. Only a few frame per second separates High and Ultra High modes as we kept anti-aliasing at 4x. Even so, we experienced only mild stuttering throughout gameplay. For those looking for a smoother ride, try bumping down anti-aliasing to 2X.
