Far Cry with HDR Lighting
We traditionally check the ability of the new graphics card to work in the HDR lighting mode and we also include the results of ATI’s RADEON X1800 which support HDR in Far Cry after installation of a special patch from CryTek. Unfortunately, the patch is not very fast and doesn’t allow turning on FSAA. It is also unavailable to ordinary users as yet, so it’s too early to comment upon the results of the RADEON X1800 cards.
The GeForce 7800 GTX 512 has a comfortable speed of 60fps and higher even in 1600x1200 with HDR enabled. The ordinary GeForce 7800 GTX was limited to 1280x1024 resolution, its speed being below comfortable level in 1600x1200. Then, you should use 1024x768 resolution on the GeForce 6800 Ultra and on the RADEON X1800, too, at least with the current version of the above-mentioned patch.
