MSI NX7800GTX SLI Review - Page 8 of 14

FAR CRY PERFORMANCE

Far Cry performance was measured on the Training Level using its standard rendering mode and with High Dynamic Range (HDR) enabled. With standard rendering mode, SLI began to provide significant improvements in performance at a resolution of 1920x1440 with no AA and at 1600x1200 with 4X AA. SLI increased performance by 55% with supersampling transparency enabled at 1600x1200 with 4X AA.

Overall, SLI provided an average increase in performance of 38% without HDR and 2.7% with HDR.

A batch file was used to benchmark Far Cry, which contained the command line shown below to run a timed demo using the specified parameters. The result from the third run was used. AA and AF were configured in-game prior to running a benchmark.

        Bin32\FarCry.exe -DEVMODE "#demo_num_runs=2" "#demo_quit=1" 
        "#r_Width=1280" "#r_Height=960" "#r_Fullscreen=1" "#s_SoundEnable=0"
        "#s_MusicEnable=0" "#r_HDRRendering=0" "#r_TexNormalMapCompressed=0"
        "map Training" "demo Training"
        

The Very High graphics pre-set was enabled, while the water quality was manually updated from Very High to Ultra High. Far Cry will automatically enable Shader Model 3.0 functionality when supported by hardware and the Very High graphics setting is used.
