Performance Comparisons with FarCry v1.33

Performance Comparisons with FarCry v1.33

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 without anti-aliasing or anisotropic filtering enabled, and then again with 4X AA and 16X aniso enabled concurrently.


In our FarCry testing, the NX7600GT-VT2D256E easily beat the X1600XT at all image quality settings and resolutions.  At 1024x768, we saw an average of 20FPS lead in each run and at 1600x1200 that lead was 25FPS with no AA and 15FPS with 4XAA and 16X Anisotropic Filtering enabled.
