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.
Once again the average frame rates are pretty even between the GTX 465 and the Radeon HD 5850 though the NVIDIA card has a much better minimum frame rate on all three resolutions than the AMD card does. The performance delta between the GTX 470 and the GTX 465 is again about 25% with an SLI scaling rate of 73%!
