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 and No anisotropic enabled concurrently.

FarCry 2 proved to be somewhat of a strong point for the GeForce GTX 285.  Although it wasn't quite able to catch the Radeon HD 4870 X2, it was nipping at its heals--especially at the higher resolution.  The GeForce GTX 285, despite having half the frame buffer memory and only a sinlge GPU, was able to pull ahead of the dual-GPU powered Radeon HD 4850 X2 here when the resolution was cranked up to 2560x1600.
