||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.
