Far Cry HDR Performance

As usual, we checked the new graphics card in Far Cry ’s HDR mode. The final version of the game patch that enables HDR for graphics cards of the Radeon X1000 family isn’t yet released and the version we have at our disposal is not very fast and does not allow using FSAA along with HDR; it is also unavailable to the public. So, the results that follow below should only be considered as a preliminary performance estimate.

The Radeon X1800 XT is very slow, while the Radeon X1900 XTX looks quite competitive even against the GeForce 7800 GTX 512. The new solution from ATI Technologies makes up for the imperfections of the patch with its 48 pixel shader processors and other improvements. The resulting performance is close to the desired 60fps in 1600x1200; 1280x1024 resolution is easily playable.
