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 one of the built-in demo runs recorded in the "Ranch" map.  The test results shown here were run at various resolutions with 8X AA and Ultra High Quality presets enabled concurrently.


Even with 8X AA turned on and the game's image quality set to Ultra High, the Gamer Paladin F970 returns very playable frame rates. By comparison, the Gamer Paladin F970 out scores the Digital Storm 950Si Custom Core i7 Gaming System at every resolution. At 1920X1200 resolution on a 24" flat panel LCD, the Gamer Paladin F970 averages 51.9 fps, while the Digital Storm 950Si averages 49.58 fps.
