AMD Radeon 6970 & 6950 Review - Far Cry 2

Article Type: 

Far Cry 2 (and the whole Cry/Crysis series) has long been considered a system killer. If not a killer, then at least a good strong test. As always, we run our test at max settings with 4xAA. The benchmark tool within Far Cry 2 offers settings for High, Very High and Ultra. We chose Ultra with 4xAA.

While once a true system killer, Far Cry 2 shows that hardware catches up to software. All but the 5770 are hitting 60fps in widescreen (at max settings), and the CFX configurations are doubling that at a 120fps CPU wall.

Eyefinity does show a steady performance climb. The top configurations are hitting 90fps in Eyefinity, with the 6800 and 6900 single card configurations posting very playable numbers.
