Re: Far Cry shows how pitiful GeForceFX is in DX9 games
"FWIW...Not saying this is for certain....but 1280x1024 is kind of a funky resolution in certain games. I've seen (especially in racing games for whatever reason) that performance is actually better at 1600x1200. I know that is not the norm at all and goes against logic but I've seen it. I don't have Far Cry (yet) so can't speak for it."
I'd put this at the bottom of the list of potential issues to worry about with regards to far cry performance.. Hey, maxpower, are you sure that the performance gain wasn't because AA is disabled by cards with limited vram if you set the resolution too hight.. Anyways, this issue has NEVER been picked up by ANYONE bechmarking the cards at different resolutions.
