If you've been on top of the gaming scene for some time, you probably know that FarCry was one of the most visually impressive games to be released on the PC in the last few years.  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 article with a fully patched version of FarCry using a custom-recorded demo run taken in the "Catacombs" area checkpoint. The tests were run at various resolutions with 4X AA and 16X aniso enabled concurrently.


The EVGA e-GeForce 7950 GT KO cards also performed quite well in our custom FarCry benchmark. In single-card mode, they outpaced the Radeon X1950 Pro by a couple of frames per second at both resolutions. In dual-card SLI mode, however, the 7950s fell just shy of the mark set by Radeon X1950 Pro CrossFire rig. Our test machine was somewhat CPU limited in this benchmark in the multi-GPU configurations though, which explains the tight grouping and relatively high framerates put up by all of the systems.
