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 7680 x 1600 resolution, no AA, and ultra high image quality settings.

The built in benchmark utility found in FarCry 2 is one of the best we've seen, and we continue to use it in many of our reviews. With resolution cranked up, we find the GTX 480s in Surround mode averaged to be 17% faster than the HD 5870s. Keep in mind, the 5870s are factory overclocked and are about the same price as the GTX 480s.
