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.

Looking at Far Cry 2, we see some good gains once again with the HD 4890. Unfortunately 2560 x 1600 doesn't give us that 30 FPS minimum we like to see, but at 1920 x 1200 we see we're well above it.

 

Optimum Setup- 1920 x 1200 isn't going to be a problem with a 38 FPS minimum. Adding a bit of AA or AF should keep us above 30 FPS while making the game look that little bit better again.
