Gigabyte Radeon HD 7870 2GB GHz Edition Video Card Review


FarCry 3

Far Cry 3 Co-Op Mode Trailer Released!

FarCry 3 is a popular first-person shooter developed by Ubisoft. Being released in December 2012 using the Dunia Engine 2, which is based on the CryEngine. There is no built-in benchmarking utility, so using one of the built-in missions we will attempt to keep it as similar across the tests. Setting the graphics quality to Ultra we begin the testing.

At Ultra settings the FarCry 3 looks incredible, the Dunia engine pushes most mid-level cards, and at these settings both cards are able to play the game very smoothly.

Benchmark Results: With a 56% performance boost, the ASUS GTX 560Ti can’t match the Gigabyte HD7870. This is to be expected though, comparing a card that is a generation behind the other, and with half the memory.
