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. We set game title to 8x MSAA Anti-Aliasing and ultra quality settings.
Benchmark Results: On a single monitor the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770 SLI setup was amazing as we were gaming at 2560x1600 on our 30-inch panel at nearly 51 FPS on average versus just 26 FPS with a single card. When we moved over to NVIDIA Surround gaming on our 3-panel setup we encountered really bad performance and a gaming experience that was unplayable. We contacted NVIDIA to let them know about this situation over a week ago and they never got back to us with an answer as to what is going on. Their answer was for us to go back and try older drivers to see if we can isolate the issue, but we don’t have the man power to go back and try several drivers to find their bug!
