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.
Even though Far Cry 2 is probably our most graphically intense title tested today, even it can’t really justify the addition of third card at resolutions lower than 2560×16500. At that top resolution though, we see the game performance increase 72% adding in that second HD 5870 and then another 54% with the third card in CrossFire. Even better, the minimum frame rate is also scaling impressively.
