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.

Far Cry 2 continues to beat the tar out of our lower-end graphics cards and in reality the 1600×1200 resolution is the most interesting and relevant.  The HD 4770 finds itself squeezed again by the two competing NVIDIA offerings and slightly slower than the HD 4850.
