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 and settings.

With image quality settings turned up, FarCry 2 proved to be a challenge. Even with the resolution down to 1280 x 720, we witnessed stuttering and the game was barely playable. Switching gears, we kept the resolution at 1920 x 1080 and lowered anti-aliasing down to 2x, but still saw mild stuttering. For smooth game play, we suggest keeping AA to a minimum and using medium image quality settings. We'll speculate that a new set of current ATI drivers could assist with improved frame rates here but we tested the machine as delivered from Asus.
