FarCry
FarCry is one of the most visually impressive games to be released on the PC platform to date, courtesy of its proprietary engine, dubbed "CryEngine" by its developers. FarCry's game-play is enhanced by graphics with Polybump mapping, advanced environment physics, destructible terrain, dynamic lighting, motion-captured animation, and surround sound. The game is rife with lush, brightly lit outdoor environments, and high-poly models that are capable of taxing most of today's high-end 3D graphics hardware. We benchmarked the 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.

The latest patched version of Far Cry led us to some interesting observations.  At both 1280x1024 and 1600x1200, the GeForce 7800GT based card was the fastest.  Second place was reserved for the X850XT, with the RX18L256V-B coming in a close third at the lower res, but a disappointing ten frames back at 1600x1200.  Now, crank up the settings, and we've got the exact opposite order: the X850XT moved to the front, followed by the X1800XL, and the NX78T256V-B was in last.
