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.


Far Cry 2 results were at stark contrast with ET: Quake Wars with no distinctive advantage given in either direction.  The two highest frame rates come, naturally, from the two cards with the highest default clock speeds: the MSI GeForce GTX 275 Twin Frozr OC on the green team, and Diamonds Radeon HD 4890 XOC on the red.  Following those two, the remaining five cards are basically operating on the same level, with a combined delta of less than 2 frames per second.
