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 last year. 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.


The HIS Radeon X1900 XT IceQ3 also handled our custom FarCry benchmark with relative ease. When we tested the card at a resolution of 1280x1024, the HIS card ran neck-and-neck with the GeForce 7900 GTX, and just a hair behind the Radeon X1900 XTX. But with the resolution cranked up to 1600x1200 the HIS Radeon X1900 XT IceQ3 pulled ahead of the 7900 GTX by about 5 frames per second. The Radeon X1900 XTX and GX2 were faster than the HIS X1900 XT, however.
