XFX Radeon HD 5770 1GB GDDR5 Review

Far Cry 2 (DX10)



Even though Far Cry 2 has its own built-in benchmarking tool with some flythroughs and “action scenes”, we decided to record our own timedemo consisting of about 7 minutes of game time. It involves everything from run-and-gun fights to fire effects. The built-in benchmarking too was then set up to replay the timedemo and record framerates

1680 x 1050





1920 x 1200





2560 x 1600





Far Cry DX10 provides much the same results as the DX9 version but this time the superior rendering power of the GTX 260 216 comes into play whenever AA is turned on. On the flip side of the coin, the GTS 250 1GB is thoroughly beat again and again...except when it comes to minimum framerates with AA enabled. When that happens, the HD 5770 really suffers at the hands of the NVIDIA cards. Well, it seems we have yet another justification for including the minimum framerates in our charts.
