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.
While Far Cry is a bit older title, I still make use of it because it has decent graphics and also uses the SM3 texturing. A quick look at the numbers above shows a 3% gain with the GeCube board, at least until we get to the higher 1600x1200 resolution. I can't explain why the big brother decided to own the XT board with a 12% increase in frames, but a second run of the same benchmark showed the same results. Not that I'm complaining mind you, I just can't put any reasoning behind the sudden massive increase.
