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 a built-in demo run recorded in the Ranch Map.  The test results shown here were run at a resolution of 2560 x 1600 and maximum image settings.

FarCry2 is another title that bucks the trend by favoring NVIDIA's GTX 480. At max settings, we find Zotac's card with a substantial performance lead over the HD 5970 and 5870.
