ATI Radeon HD 5970 Dual-GPU Powerhouse Review
||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.
