Far Cry
If you've been on top of the gaming scene, you probably know that Far Cry is one of the most visually impressive games to be released on the PC to date.  Far Cry gives us a taste of what is to come in next-generation 3D Gaming on the PC.  We benchmarked the graphics cards in this review with a custom-recorded demo run taken in the "Catacombs" area checkpoint, at 1024 x 768 and 1600 x 1200 without AA or Aniso Filtering enabled and then with 4X AA and 8X Aniso enabled together.


The demanding Far Cry engine was handled well by the NX6800GT and X800XL cards, with frame rates of nearly 60fps or better in almost every run.  The 6600GT quickly fell off of the pace of the other two, starting off with a bang at 70.9 fps, yet ending up with a whimper, barely eeking by at 16.44 fps when everything was set to the max.  Again, we had the X800XL as the hands-down winner of each head-to-head matchup, regularly beating the 6800GT based card by 10 frames or more.
