64bits FP HDR and DM are already included in Farcry but in the 1.3 patch. it just that still is not released to the public since its in beta stages. patch 1.2 only add performance improvements and fix Iq issues.
they are talking about SM3.0 so we cant relate this to any other card than the 6800,well im already playing it on a 6800u, and 2-10 fps isnt gonna make it more realistic, on the other hand HDR and displacement mapping will definately make it more realistic. So judging by cryteks post HDR and DM is in the 1.2 patch
we can still only wish :P
