Far Cry 2
The Palit GeForce GTX 460 Sonic Platinum is in the lead at every resolution. It doesn’t open new opportunities for gamers here, yet its higher performance will come in handy at 2560x1600, for example.
This game is tested without multisampling antialiasing as it worsens the textures and provokes a performance hit.
The Radeon HD 5870 is unbeaten at 2560x1600, remaining the single card to deliver a playable frame rate there. At the lower resolutions the overclocked Palit is just as good as the leader, being somewhat slower in terms of average speed but costing much less.

We use the game’s DirectX 10.1 and DirectX 11 modes for graphics cards that support them.
The overclocked Palit is just as fast as the GeForce GTX 470 and Radeon HD 5870 but the resolution of 2560x1600 is still unplayable because the average frame rate is below 25 fps. Anyway, our overclocking results are most impressive considering the price category the GeForce GTX 460 1GB comes from.
