Default Post pics of Far Cry w/wo SM3.0

Could anyone who's interested please take the time and post some pics of Far Cry.
Each pic of the same area with & without SM3.0 so us non 6800 owners can compare the difference and see what we are missing.

Thanks to anyone who posts!!

p.s Please state what gpu (GT, Ultra) you are using, what settings and what FPS you were getting during the shot.

There are no visual difference between SM2.0 and SM3.0 in the current implementation of SM3.0 in Far Cry (version 1.2). However, I do recall that jAkUp posted a homemade video he recorded off his PDA at the NV40 launch event where it showed how Far Cry will look with SM3.0, which means in version 1.3 so you can either search for the old thread if its still here, or try to request rehost of jAkUp's videofile.

I don't think that I have seen any screenshots with SM3.0 vs. SM2.0 comparison screenshots, but is video even better after all

In return, there has been some Far Cry images showing off HDR (High Dynamic Range) lightning which originated from some board, I think it was from guru3d. Just a few minutes and ill post them here...

Although not really the focus of this IQ section of my last review, the ATI images are PS2.0 and the NV images were taken from the PS3.0 mode.

Gaco is correct in that there is no visual difference at this point in time.

Keep in mind that these are very early HDR implementation screenshots, and does not represent the final quality. If im not wrong, I see some samples of Displacement Mapping on some walls, but it might 'just' be increased texture quality, I don't know. Also notice that he has low FPS in some pictures; he is playing at 1024*768 on a Geforce 6800 Ultra card, but performance will definently be improved before release. Ok here we go, 14 pics total:

Pretty nice stuff... I just hope that Crytek is making some real progress with the upcoming patch, we have really waited our asses off for some time now

But we all know that software, and especially games development is a tricky buisness

I know the light is a bit overdone, but I think they are good to show off HDR's potential. Remember that these pictures were taken back in june while crytek was still experimenting with HDR in Far Cry, as they properbly still are

So wait...these graphic settings you've shown up above will be available in the 1.3 patch?

I can't belive how much more beautiful this game has gotten. My God.
