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 such a CPU limited program yet when you install the new drivers we can see that every setup increases in performance.

 

The performance increase is greater then 10% and can be as much as 15% on some setups which would tend to suggest the extra core on our X2 is starting to be utilized.
