Far Cry 2
Like the original, Far Cry 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, Far Cry 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 Far Cry 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 anti-aliasing and no anisotropic filtering enabled concurrently.

While the 4870 X2 XOC fares respectably against the GTX 295, especially at 2560x1600, we were hoping that it would best the single GTX 285 by a wider margin.
