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 with 4X AA and No anisotropic enabled concurrently.

The smaller 512MB frame buffers on the Radeon HD 4770, HD 4850, and GeForce 9800 GT really come into play with the high-quality settings we used for testing in FarCry 2. In this test, the Radeon HD 4770 trails all of the other cards, including the GeForce 9800 GT.
