Far Cry 3
Far Cry 3 is an open world first-person shooter video game developed by Ubisoft Montreal and published by Ubisoft for Microsoft Windows, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. It is the sequel to 2008's Far Cry 2. The game was released on December 4th, 2012 for North America. Far Cry 3 is set on a tropical island found somewhere at the intersection of the Indian and Pacific Oceans. After a vacation goes awry, player character Jason Brody has to save his kidnapped friends and escape from the islands and their unhinged inhabitants.
Far Cry 3 uses the Dunia Engine 2 game engine with Havok physics. The graphics are excellent and the game really pushes the limits of what one can expect from mainstream graphics cards.
Benchmark Results: The performance difference in Far Cry 3 between these two discrete laptop graphics cards was huge. The AMD Radeon HD 7690M averaged 8.7 FPS and the AMD Radeon HD 8790M averaged 25.3 FPS. This game title has been optimized for the GCN architecture and we found it playable on the AMD Radeon HD 8790M at 1920x1080 with the optimal settings for our configuration.
