ASUS GeForce GTX 560 Ti DirectCU II 1GB 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 DCUII are shown in the table below:

ASUS GTX 560 Ti DCUII  OC Zotac GTX 560 Multiview ASUS GTX 560 Ti 448 Core
DirectX 9 +6.2% -5.6% +12.5%
DirectX 10 +6.9% -11.62% +11.4%

 

We see a 6.2% gain from the overclock in DX9 performance, which boosts to just under 7% in DirectX10 testing.  We see a significant jump in the advantage over the GTX 560 Multiview in DX10 performance, at an 11.62% advantage.  The jump to the next model in Nvidia's 500-series hierarchy, the GTX 560 Ti 448 Core, will give about a 12% performance advantage.
