Far Cry, AA and AF


By: Sander Sassen


Far Cry is without question the most demanding game available today. Donít expect to play this game at high resolution with all graphics options turned up unless you have a very fast PC equipped with one of the latest graphics cards. Furthermore it is able to make full use of the new features found on both the GeForce 6800 Ultra and the Radeon X800 XT, which makes this game unique, as most games are programmed for a previous generation of cards, we can only hope Crytek started a trend. Far Cry shows us that the GeForce 6800 Ultra pulls slightly ahead, especially with the new 61.10 driver Nvidia just released, the old 60.72 driver had a bug which resulted in pretty bad anti-aliasing and anisotropic filtering performance. It goes without question that both cards are able to render up to 1600x1200 resolution with more than sufficient frame rates, only when we enable anti-aliasing and anisotropic filtering performance drops with the GeForce 6800 Ultra taking the lead with a performance gap of 15.5% at 1600x1200.
