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.




The first thing we want to say is that it's great that the GTX 470 is able to offer us a minimum of over 30 FPS at all resolutions including 2560 x 1600. Against the HD 5850 we can see it's able to pull out a win at all resolutions in both the minimum and average department.


Again, though, we see as we climb the resolution table the gap between the HD 5850 and GTX 470 does shrink. In this case, though, the GTX 470 is able to hold out for the win.


As for the GTX 285 minimum, we ran the test multiple times after multiple reboots and the minimum would always come back to us between 7 and 8 FPS.
