Far Cry 2
Far Cry 2 is a DirectX 11 title using Ubisoft's Dunia engine, which is coded to take advantage of multi-core processors. The game allows DirectX 9 modes as well, and we'll test both to see how the cards compare in each scenario. The Dunia engine utilizes physics-intensive semi-destructible environments to create a dynamic open FPS world with unscripted AI.
The benchmarks included 3 runs of the "Ranch Long" at a 1920x1080 resolution, 8xMSAA, and "Very High" graphics detail with no Vsync. We tested both DX9 and DX10 settings, and the number reported is the average of the runs.
When equally-clocked, the Ti version of the GTX 560Ti holds a 6% advantage in DX9 performance and an 8.5% advantage in DX10 tests. The simple overclock we applied to the card gave a boost of 3.7% and 5.9% for DX9 and DX10 performance, respectively. The 448 core edition GTX 560Ti had a 19.6% advantage over the stock GTX 560 Multiview.
