Far Cry 2
We tested Far Cry 2 using the game's built-in benchmarking tool, which allowed us to test the different cards at multiple resolutions in a precisely repeatable manner. We used the benchmark tool's "Very high" quality presets with the DirectX 10 renderer and 4X multisampled antialiasing.
The Radeon HD 5850 is off to a promising start here, edging out Nvidia's GeForce GTX 285, its most direct competitor, at all resolutions. We're also getting our first glimpse at how Cypress performs after a little pruning. At resolutions of 1680x1050 and up, the 5850 lies almost exactly half-way between the 4890 and 5870. Product segmentation at its finest, folks.
