If you've been on top of the gaming scene for some time, you probably know that FarCry was one of the most visually impressive games to be released on the PC in the last few years.  Courtesy of its proprietary engine, dubbed "CryEngine" by its developers, FarCry's game-play is enhanced by Polybump mapping, advanced environment physics, destructible terrain, dynamic lighting, motion-captured animation, and surround sound. Before titles such as Half-Life 2 and Doom 3 hit the scene, FarCry gave us a taste of what was to come in next-generation 3D gaming on the PC. We benchmarked the graphics cards in this article with a fully patched version of FarCry using a custom-recorded demo run taken in the "Catacombs" area checkpoint. The tests were run at various resolutions with 4X AA and 16X aniso enabled concurrently.


The results of our custom FarCry benchmark were very similar to the Half Life 2: Episode 1 results on the previous page. Once again, the GeForce 7950 GT comes in just behind the GeForce 7900 GTX and ahead of the 7900 GT.  The Radeons, or more specifically the similarly priced 256MB X1900 XT, was a bit faster overall though - somewhere in the neighborhood of 2% to 10% depending on the resolution.
