There is no denying that Far Cry is currently one of the most graphic intensive games on the market, utilizing PS2.0 technology (the latest versions support Shader Model 3.0 with DX9c) and offering an exceptional visual experience there is no denying that even some of the faster graphics cards struggle.
Far Cry is a game that is that much limited by the processor that it gives us lower numbers on the 16x chipset.
With performance being lower here we would tend to think that it is an optimization problem - with the board coming to us so early the drivers aren't as mature for this extra bandwidth, we would assume.
