Default Re: Far Cry Benchmarks - Shader Model 3.0 performance

here is Xbitlabs..

they give the crown of FArcry to the 6800Ultra ..and with/without Sm3.0 (1.2 patch).. the Gt outscore in every test the X800pro. the vanilla 6800 comes at times close.and this time with all IQ issues Fixed at full Fp32 precision. however it remains to be seen if ATI issues when using High quality shadows have been fixed (not rendering them).the reason for some sites using medium quality shadows there.if they are ,that might explain the performance diferences with the 1.2 patch wich also adds tons of fix for Ati and Nv cards .

The benchmark results achieved today in “Pure Mode” prove that the GeForce 6800 Ultra graphics cards is the fastest performer in FarCry in the majority of cases when it works using Shader Model 3.0 path. While the RADEON X800 XT delivers performance very close to that of the competitor, there are very few cases when the graphics card can outperform the GeForce 6800 Ultra with no full-scene antialiasing and anisotropic filtering enabled. Slightly less powerful options – the GeForce 6800 GT and the GeForce 6800 – also prove to be extremely successful rivals for the RADEON X800 PRO and the RADEON 9800 XT respectively, according to FarCry benchmarks in “Pure Mode”. In fact, both GeForce 6800-series offerings at $399 and $299 price-points leave the rivals behind by quite a substantial margin and therefore can be considered as the best options for FarCry in terms of price/performance ratio.
