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 470 and the pair of HD 5870s from ASUS are running pretty much in line with each other with another slight advantage going to the GeForce GTX 480, re-iterating what we have seen over the last 6 months of GPU comparisons.
