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.




We see great FPS out of FarCry 2 and for the most part we don't really see high-end cards struggle under the game. The consistency of the benchmark combined with the intensity when we turn on AA and AF continue to make it an excellent tool. You can see here compared to the HD 6970 and GTX 580, we move from a 50 FPS minimum to a 75 FPS minimum, a gain that equates to an extra 50% in performance.


This is really what we've seen all along with the new HD 7970, gains ranging from 40% - 60%. These are some impressive gains for a card that comes in at the same size as the HD 6970.
