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.

Our results with the FarCry 2 benchmark look much like those from Unigine. Here, the Asus and MSI GeForce GTX 560 cards are able to easily outpace the Radeon HD 6870 and they fall in right between the GeForce GTX 460 and GeForce GTX 560 Ti--although they're much closer in performance to the Ti than the 460.
