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.

HD 4850: We see the averages have gone up slightly while the minimum for 2560 x 1600 has gone down a little.

 

HD 4870: Here we see performance gains across the board in the average department. As far as the minimum goes, the only real gain is seen at 2560 x 1600.

 

HD 4870 X2: The issue we had with FC2 previously seems to be fixed with excellent performance seen from the new driver.
