Far Cry 2
Far Cry 2 (DirectX 10)
Far Cry 2 is the spiritual sequel to one of the best selling and longest living games on the PC though this title was developed not by Crytek, but by Ubisoft directly using a completely new engine as well. The game is set in Africa and you have malaria – what else do you need to know?

Far Cry 2 includes a great benchmarking utility that allows us to setup for in-game testing of all varieties and includes both the ability to benchmark based on time (variable frame count) or based on speed (fixed frame count) – we went with the time-based option to simulate real-world gaming and allowing for apples-to-apples comparisons.
The GeForce GTX 295 takes the performance crown again in Far Cry 2 though this time by smaller margins of 17% at 2560×1600 and 15% or so at 2048×1536 – the 1600×1200 resolution was basically a draw. What is more exciting is the scaling we are seeing with the GTX 295 over the single GPU GTX 260+ where performance boosts of as much as 61% were seen!
