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 various resolutions with 4X AA enabled.

The new GeForce GTS 450 crushed the Radeon HD 5770 in the FarCry 2 benchmark, even when running at reference specifications. The overclocked EVGA and Asus cards offered much more performance than the reference model, which obviously extended NVIDIA's lead here.
