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 a resolution of 2560 x 1600, 8x AA, and maximum image settings.

FarCry2 offers more good news for the Gigabyte Super Overclock GTX 470. It showed consistently higher frame rates than the HD 5870 in all tests, and trailed only the GTX 480 within the comparison group. And once again, the MSI Hawk GTX 460 flexes its muscles by providing better performance than the HD 6870 in 2 out of 3 tests.
