Far Cry 1.1 – Regulator Demo
For this demo, I decided to turn on the flashlight to add yet another light path for the GPU to render. As you just might be using it on this dark level anyway, it is interesting to note that the FPS drops immediately by something like 10 FPS as soon as the flashlight is turned on.
Before we enable the AA and AF on this level, the NVIDIA cards are showing to be the leader at the lower resolution of 1024×768 but the performance lead is nearly gone when we turn on those features.
The same occurs here on the 1280 resolution as it did on the 1024. Notice that the very first part of the demo is indoors, and this is the one place where the ATI X800 Pro is noticeably below the 6800 GT cards. Once the action goes outside, the ATI card actually out performs NVIDIA.
At 1600×1200, and with 0x0x quality settings, the 6800 GT is playable though the ATI X800 Pro is iffy. Neither card is really playable once the AA/AF is turned on even though the NVIDIA 6800 GT has a very small edge again.
