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.

Under Far Cry 2 we see some strong performance gains over the reference card. You may find yourself asking, though, what's the benefit to having such huge FPS when you can only see so much. If you get on a 120Hz LCD, turn V-Sync on and can achieve an average of around 120 FPS, your gaming experience will just be silky smooth.
