Far Cry
If you've been on top of the gaming scene, you probably know that Far Cry is one of the most visually impressive games to be released on the PC to date.  Far Cry gives us a taste of what is to come in next-generation 3D Gaming on the PC.  We benchmarked the graphics cards in this review with a custom recorded demo run taken in the "Catacombs" area checkpoint at various resolutions without AA or Aniso Filtering enabled.

Given the history we've seen so far, we had low expectations with newer titles such as Far Cry and Doom 3.  Nevertheless, we have to run the tests to complete the overall picture.  Far Cry was a tough struggle for both cards tested, with the OmniChrome falling into single digit scores at 1280x1024.  The Personal Cinema wasn't much better, but at 1024x768, you might get by with reduced in-game image qualities.
