Benchmarks and Comparisons With Far Cry
Game of the Year?.

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 Mobility Radeon 9800 with a custom recorded demo run taken in the "Catacombs" area checkpoint, at resolutions of 1024x768 and 1600x1200 without any AA or Aniso Filtering enabled and then with 4X AA and 8X Aniso enabled together.


The Mobility Radeon 9800 didn't have much trouble with FarCry, but once again, the desktop system powered by the Radeon 9800 Pro was considerably faster.  At 1024x768, the desktop part was about 20% - 22% faster than the Mobility Radeon 9800 in both test configurations. At 1600x1200, the Radeon 9800 Pro held onto it's 20%+ lead, but lost some ground once anti-aliasing and anisotropic filtering was enabled.  Regardless of the performance deltas, for a mobile part the Mobility Radeon 9800 has been quite impressive thus far.
