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 you can see what a CPU limitation looks like with there being a massive performance difference at 2560 x 1600 between both Intel setups and a big difference between the Intel and AMD setup at both resolutions.

We can clearly see that across the board we've got really strong numbers from both platforms, but the Intel numbers are going to look a lot more attractive for people who are going down the 120Hz monitor path.
