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.

The new GeForce GTX 295 was back to its winning ways in the FarCry 2 benchmark.  In this game, the GeForce GTX 295 and Radeon HD 4970 X2 look like they perform similarly, but those few frames per second separating the two cards equates to an approximate 9.3% advantage for NVIDIA's new flagship.
