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 custom-recorded demo run taken in the "Catacombs" area checkpoint, at various resolutions with 4X AA and 16X aniso enabled concurrently.


Here we see the X1950 XT pull away from the pack again, beating out its next closest competitor, the X1900 XT by a bit over 13% at both 1280x1024 and 1600x1200. In this battle, the 7900 GT is clearly outmatched. It falls behind the X1950 XT by 37% at 1600x1200.
