Far Cry
If you've been on top of the gaming scene recently, you probably know that Far Cry is one of the most visually impressive games to be released on the PC to date.  Although Doom 3 and Half Life 2 have both arrived, Far Cry still looks great in comparison, especially with the new v1.3 patch installed and some special effects turned on. Far Cry came along and 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 a custom-recorded demo run taken in the "Catacombs" area checkpoint at various resolutions without AA or Aniso Filtering enabled and then with 4X AA enabled along with 8X anisotropic filtering.  Geometry instancing and normal map compression were enabled for these tests, but HDR rending was disabled.  The default pixel shader code path was used.


With FarCry running at 1024x768, the All-In-Wonder X800 XT performed at virtually the same level at the standard Radeon X800 XT, besting the Radeon X800 XL and GeForce 6800 GT by a few frames per second in each test configuration. The same held true With FarCry running at 1600x1200, although the GeForce 6800 GT closed the gap somewhat.
