Gigabyte Radeon HD 7870 2GB OC Review (Page 8 of 13)

Page 8 - Benchmark: Far Cry 2

Far Cry 2 is the oldest game in our array of benchmarks. Released on October 21, 2008, Far Cry 2 uses a heavily modified version of the Dunia Engine with Havok Physics. This DirectX 10 game comes with an excellent benchmark utility that quite well reflects in-game performance, so again, we decided to use it to obtain our results for our graphs above. At 1920x1200 and everything maxed out, we are back to another swap session, except this time, the GeForce cards scaled better than the Radeon contestants in antialiasing adjustments. In this benchmark, the Gigabyte Radeon HD 7870 2GB OC posted significant gains over its predecessor, but it did trade some punches with the GTX 570.
