  • Quake 4: Hardware OC
  • Need For Speed Most Wanted (FRAPS)

Benchmark: Far Cry

As I have in the past, I will begin with Far Cry. Although it is an older game, it is still a very popular benchmark and I always like to see what results any video card will bring.

Settings:

  • Maximum quality option, Direct3D renderer
  • Level: Volcano, demo: Volcano.tmd
  • Pixel shader: model 2.0b
  • Antialising: 4×
  • Anisotropic filtering: 8×
  • HDR: disabled
  • Geometry Instancing: disabled
  • Normal-maps compression: disabled

 

 

 

 

The HD 2900 XT is a 512 MB video card, which is twice that of the XFX 8600 GTS XXX, yet even in the highest tested resolution, there was only a 22 fps difference.
