Far Cry abounds in sophisticated pixel shaders, so we had expected the RADEON X700 XT to run this game very quickly. In reality, however, it could only reach the level of the GeForce 6600, and fell behind it in 1600x1200. Some problems with the driver?
The situation improves somewhat for the new RADEON in the eye candy mode, but it still cannot overtake the GeForce 6600 GT.
Alas, we couldn’t get the results in 1600x1200 resolution for this test.
It’s all the same on the Research level.
Although not in all the resolutions, the RADEON X700 XT leaves the GeForce 6600 GT behind on this level in the eye candy mode.
Frankly speaking, the new graphics card failed the Far Cry tests completely, but we think this is most probably due to the new and unperfected drivers.
