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.

The PNY GeForce GTX 470 performed relatively well in the FarCry 2 benchmark. In this test, the GTX 470 was able to pull ahead of even the Radeon HD 5870. The Radeon HD 5970 and GeForce GTX 480 were still the top performers overall, however.
