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 a built-in demo run recorded in the Ranch Map. The test results shown here were run at multiple resolutions and maximum image settings.

There's no question which card tops our Far Cry 2 test results. The GTX 580 FTW HC2 consistently leads leads the pack, with the HD 5970 trailing by 32% at the 2560x1600 resolution. Granted, Far Cry 2 is a DX10 title with no tessellation features but it's still a good indicator of graphics performance.
