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 and No anisotropic enabled concurrently.

The tables turned somewhat in the FarCry 2 benchmark.  Here, the Sapphire Radeon HD 4850 X2 trailed the GeForce GTX 280 and 285 at the higher resolution, but pulled ahead at the lower resolution.  The margins of victory are within a few percentage points of each other.
