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.

Against the GTX 285 the HD 5870 performs exceptionally well with a 10 FPS difference at 2560 x 1600 which equates to a gain of over 30%. Against the GTX 295 we see the HD 5870 sits a bit behind. The good news is that the extra performance the GTX 295 offers isn't going to make your gaming experience any better. At 2560 x 1600 41 FPS vs 54 FPS in the minimum department isn't going to be noticeable.
