Yes it seem run much better on nvidia hardware. I turned all options to the max with 1024x768 8xAF, it first it started fine and then it shuttering, then shuttering again. I turned down the resolution to 800x800 and then everything went perfectly with no shuttering.

Far Cry definitely need Athlon 64 and more than 512Mb RAM to run perfect at 1024x768 and above, it no way my aging AthlonXP 1800+ can push it.

I experienced no graphics issues and it use Direct3D9, I cant changed it to OpenGL, maybe it will when the game released.

Woo-hoo! I'm glad they decided to release the demo before the full game... I'll put myself in line once I get home, so that means I should be able to download it starting at 3:00AM on Saturday night!

OpenGl works but is buggy. Type \r_driver OpenGL in console then restart.
The game seems to take up alot of ram but alot less the BF1942.
I get between 20 and 50 FPS at 1024 x 768 4xAA and 8x AF
With every setting on Very High
It looks like this in directx 9 **********56k warning on this thread********

He only said that to get a rise out of us. Besides, he is still mad about goatse.

I loved this demo. I had all settings at very hight and got an average of 65fps. I have a 2800xp with 512 megs of ram. This is a good set up for this game. The shadows were the only setting I had normal. For a demo it was solid for me.

Nice to see that it's a game that does not disappoint. The AI is really good in this game.

Oh well, I'm gonna go play some MP in the beta now to kill some real people.

It's a great game!! Just finished the demo. However, the fps really needs to be fixed! Using Fraps to calculate the fps, I get around 32 to 48 fps on my system. All settings are max out (1024 x 768). AA/AF disabled in control panel and ingame settings. I thought far cry is part of nvidia's "The Way It's Meant To Be Played" campaign?? The game should perform well on GFX cards. I hope they get it fix before the official release.

If you go to the website above, nvidia actually states that the recommended GPU is Geforce FX. Hopefully nvidia is reading this now.
