FarCry
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.

All of the cards we tested tore right through our custom FarCry benchmark. And the performance trend among all of the cards mirrors that of the Half Life 2: Episode 1 results on the previous page. Once again, the XFX GeForce 8800 GTX XXX Edition was the best performer, and the new 320MB 8800 GTS XXX Edition outpaced both the 640MB and 320MB GeForce 8800 GTS reference cards.
