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.


FarCry 2 proved to be somewhat of a strong point for the GeForce GTX 465s. Here, both the higher-clocked EVGA card and reference clocked Zotac GeForce GTX 465 finish well ahead of even the Radeon HD 5850 at 1920x1200 and perform right on par with the 5850 at 2560x1600.
