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.

FarCry 3 Video Quality

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. We set game title to 8x MSAA Anti-Aliasing and ultra quality settings.

Far Cry 3 appears to be like most of the other games we are using to test video cards and uses up about 20% of the processor and is running on multiple cores.

Benchmark Results: The NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 Ti graphics card was slightly faster than the EVGA GeForce GTX 750 Superclocked 1GB card, but when we were gaming we noticed many more stutters or hesitations when gaming on the GeForce GTX 750 1GB.

Benchmark Results: When you look at the FPS over time you can see the GeForce GTX 750 1TB card drop to 6-7 FPS for a split second near the beginning of the benchmark run.  This is because the cards frame buffer is full and that is causing the freezing that you see when gaming. The easy fix for this is to disable 8x MSAA as that will lower the frame buffer requirements, but we like to keep it high to show differences like this. If you are gaming at 1080P there are some instances where 2GB of frame buffer are needed with very high image quality settings enabled.

    Gotta say that the temperature benchmarks for this article seem a bit off. 29 degrees idle and 55 degrees load seem to be the accurate numbers. I have no idea how this article got 19 degrees and 42 degrees? I mean was the computer set up in a freezer?

      Bro look it’s SC version also the flow of air in casing matters too.

    Ill be dxxed! I figured the 260x would outperform the regular 750, But it really is not much slower than the Ti. I still do not see justification for upgrading from my current 650Ti , With no gpu boost function the regular 650Ti’s it can overclock like crazy. Especially if you modify the 650Ti’s Bios to unlock the rest of your voltage. However I will run into the problems like this 750 did in the review if I go past 1GB.

    Ye, its ridiculous to think about my GTX 590 uses 149Watts in IDLE!!

        I agree, A stupid worthless waste of time, It just drives up prices making crappy cards like mine and others prices go way up, It hurts to try to upgrade now, Thanks to that I will be stuck with the stupid 650Ti for awhile. They are too dumb to realize the whole thing is a scam, You really think once your bit coins become worth anything the Federal Reserve Nazi’s Will stand for it?

        • WhoCares

          Well, at least that’s a valid point. But why should we assume that the Federal Reserve will have any credibility left in 10, 20, 30 years? Quite a bold assumption there.

    Just picked up two of these… Gotta say I’m blown away by the little cards. Mining Doge @ ~255Kh/s PER with the stock clocks and only drawing 55w?!? Amazing! Don’t know of any other cards that I can stuff 2 of in a stock dell and pull 500Kh/s without upgrading anything else.

  • basroil

    Looks like Nvidia really just got rid of the need to test power consumption on those cards… Can’t wait to see what the 860 series does to power consumption, should be an absolute beast for performance/power

      Leaked benchmarks showed GTX 870 will have TDP of 150 Watts
