If you've been on top of the gaming scene for some time, you probably know that FarCry is one of the most visually impressive games to be released for the PC. 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 review with a custom-recorded demo run taken in the "Catacombs" area checkpoint, at various resolutions without anti-aliasing or anisotropic filtering enabled, and then with 4X AA and 16X aniso enabled concurrently.


The GeForce 7800 GT configurations performed well in our custom FarCry benchmark, but they did stumble a bit when anti-aliasing and anisotropic filtering enabled. In this test, the Radeon X850 XT Platinum Edition outpaced the GeForce 7800 GTs in three of the four test configurations, and both of the AA / Aniso tests. Regardless of the results though, the GeForce 7800 GT was plenty fast, and maintained playable framerates in every test configuration.
