ASUS GeForce GTX 560 Ti DirectCU II 448 Core 1280MB Graphics Card Review - Benchmarks- Far Cry 2

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.

FC2-DX9

FC2-DX10

 

The relative performance from the stock ASUS GTX 560 Ti 448 Core are shown in the table below:

ASUS GTX 560 Ti 448 (850MHz) eVGA GTX 560 Ti (950MHz) ASUS GTX 560 Ti DCUII (830MHz)
DirectX 9 +7.7% -5.8% -12.5%
DirectX 10 +6.9% -3.7% -11.4%

 

For DirectX 9 performance, we see a healthy boost of nearly 6% from a heavily-overclocked GTX 560 Ti model, and a sizable 12.5% boost from a lightly-overclocked stock ASUS GTX 560 Ti DCUII.  The overclock to 850MHz core and 975MHz clock game the GTX 560 Ti 448 an additional 7.7% gain.

 

In general, we see the advantage of the 448-core model fall a bit, with the advantage falling to roughly 1%, but the 950MHz GTX 560 Ti closed the gap by 2%.
