The graphics options in the new Far Cry have gone back to simplicity, with Ultra settings turning on all available features, so you won't have to spend as much time hunting for settings and enabling them as you did in a few of the prior incarnations. You can choose between SMAA or TAA depending on your preference as neither showed any significant performance impact in [H]ard|OCP's testing. If you are planning on playing in 4K, the GTX 1080 Ti is your best bet, though the non-Ti version and AMD's RX Vega 64 are capable of running this resolution on High settings. At 1440p or lower you have a wide variety of choice as any of the cards tested could manage a decent experience, albeit not necessarily on Ultra.
Check out the full performance review here.
"We test eleven GPU's performance from the low-end, to the top-end in Far Cry 5. Our goal is to find what settings are playable on each video card in Far Cry 5, and to compare the performance. We will also look at AA and Volumetric Fog performance. If you want to find what the best value GPU is for this game, this is for you."

I’m surprised the rx 460 did
I’m surprised the rx 460 did so poorly. I’m on a 560 and I’m getting 30fps 1080p on ultra, it looks amazaballs, I’ve turned the settings down and got smooth 60fps no problem. Perhaps they used a 2gb model, that engine sure loves vram.
