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.
In Far Cry 2 the differences between the two GT 240 cards are a bit more muted, but both cards make for a playable experience at 1680×1050 even with moderately high image quality settings. Again, both the HD 4850 and 9800 GT have much better scores than the GT 240 cards but the deltas are more condensed in this title.
