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 FarCry 2 results mirror 3DMark Vantage as well. Here, the dual-CPU powered Radeon HD 5970 is in the pole position, with the single-GPU GeForce GTX 500 series cards right on its tail.  None of the single-GPU powered Radeons come close to performing like the GTX 570 or 580, however. Bring on Cayman.
