Overclocking the ATI Radeon HD 4890 - Benchmarks - Far Cry 2

We take the time to find out how well the new HD 4890 from ATI overclocks. Can it give us a worthy amount of extra FPS?

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 see very good gains from the overclocked card with the results equating to more than 15% at times.

 

Optimum Setup- While we do see good gains, the extra FPS at 2560 x 1600 is unfortunately not enough for us to move to that resolution. We could drop the detail to high or medium, but if you want to play at Very High 1920 x 1200 is the sweet spot.
