To benchmark FarCry, I used HardwareOC FarCry Benchmark v1.5 on FarCry v1.33. For the HardwareOC
Benchmark application, I set HDR Level 7 enabled, and set Shader Model to 3.0. FarCry Maximum
Details were used, which resulted in the following settings:
The Regulator demo was used. The following charts show the benchmark results.
Overclocking nets the user a 5% increase in fps at 1024x768 and an 8% increase at 1600x1200
using 4AA/16AF with gamma correct and supersampling transparency.
To benchmark Quake 4, HardwareOC Quake4 Benchmark v1.1 on Quake4 v1.2 was used. For the HardwareOC Benchmark,
High Quality video settings were used. Specific settings are as follows:

Overclocking nets the user a 20% increase in fps at 1024x768 and a 49% increase at 1600x1200 using 4AA/16AF with
gamma correct and supersampling transparency. These are some amazing numbers for Quake 4.
