Benchmarks & Comparisons With Far Cry

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.  Although Doom 3 and Half Life 2 have both arrived, Far Cry still looks great in comparison, especially with the new v1.3 patch installed.  Far Cry came along and gave us a taste of what was 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 various resolutions without AA or Aniso Filtering enabled and then with 2X AA enabled along with 8X anisotropic filtering where available.


Neither of the GeForce 6200 boards with TurboCache posted impressive framerates in our custom FarCry benchmark, but the fact that they ran this game at all is somewhat of an accomplishment.  The GeForce 6200 TurboCache 16-TC/128MB board wasn't able to run the test with anti-aliasing and anisotropic filtering.  The GeForce 6200 TurboCache 32-TC/128MB board, however, was able to complete the test, albeit at relatively low framerates by today's standards.  The GeForce 6200 TurboCache 32-TC/128MB board was, once again, roughly twice as fast as the 16MB version in the higher-resolution test.
