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 enabled.


Although the framerates are somewhat higher, our results from the FarCry 2 benchmark look much like those from Crysis. The Radeon HD 5970 simply dominates all of the single-GPU powered cards and the dual-GPU powered GeForce GTX 295, but essentially ties the Radeon HD 5850 CrossFire setup. The Radeon HD 5870 cards running in CrossFire mode, once again, take the lead.
