If you've been on top of the gaming scene for some time, you probably know that FarCry is one of the most visually impressive games to be released for the PC. Courtesy of its proprietary engine, dubbed "CryEngine" by its developers, FarCry's game-play is enhanced by Polybump mapping, advanced environment physics, destructible terrain, dynamic lighting, motion-captured animation, and surround sound. Before titles such as Half-Life 2 and Doom 3 hit the scene, FarCry gave us a taste of what was to come in next-generation 3D Gaming on the PC. We benchmarked the graphics cards in this review with a custom-recorded demo run taken in the "Catacombs" area checkpoint, at various resolutions without anti-aliasing or anisotropic filtering enabled, and then with 4X AA and 16X aniso enabled concurrently.


Our custom FarCry benchmark proved to be another strong point for the e-GeForce 7800 GTX. With the game running at resolutions of 1280x1024 and 1600x1200, only the GeForce 6800 Ultra SLI configuration was able to outrun the EVGA card when anti-aliasing and anisotropic filtering were enabled; every other card fell behind by varying margins. The Radeon X850 XT Platinum Edition put up a strong performance with AA and aniso enabled, but it wasn't quite able to catch the EVGA e-GeForce 7800 GTX at either resolution.
