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 4X AA enabled.

Far Cry 2 is the only DirectX 10 benchmark we used in this comparison. While the Radeon 6970M still posts the highest scores, its lead is significantly smaller than in the other games in this test. This indicates that the two cards are more evenly matched in older titles but the Radeon 6970M benefits in DirectX 11 titles thanks to its improved tessellation performance over previous Radeons, larger frame buffer, and architectural efficiency.
