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 2x 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 GeForce GTX 780 Ti graphics cards were 5-7 FPS faster than the GeForce GTX 780. The Gigabyte GeForce GTX 780 Ti GHz Edition card was able to break 30FPS on average thanks to the fact that it’s boost clock is 78MHz or just over 7% higher than that of the EVGA GeForce GTX 780 Ti Superclocked and the MSI GeForce GTX 780 Ti Gaming.
Benchmark Results: Some small variations here and there, but no big frame drops on any of the cards to report back about.
