While Far Cry is now one of our older benchmarking games, it is still able to put pressure on most computers systems as it is able to utilize all parts of the system. Utilizing PS2.0 technology with the latest versions supporting Shader Model 3.0 with DX9c and offering an exceptional visual experience, there is no denying that even some of the faster graphics cards get a bit of a workout.

 

 

Lastly we have Far Cry that shows the Radeon X1250 in a very good light (when using 512MB of frame buffer) compared to that of the GeForce 6150 which is limited to just 256MB frame buffer.

AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+, 2.0 GHz
