The Dunia Engine was built specifically for Far Cry 2 by the award-winning Ubisoft Montreal development team. It delivers the most realistic destructible environments, amazing special effects such as dynamic fire propagation and storm effects, real-time night-and-day cycle, dynamic music system, non-scripted enemy A.I. and so much more.

Across the board we can see that one to four cores doesn't show too much of a difference in Far Cry 2. It's interesting to see that one of the newest games we test here doesn't benefit as much from a quad core CPU as something like Crysis Warhead.
