My results using Fraps benchmark. I loaded from the 3rd(?) checkpoint right before the binocular cabin, and ran back toward the little dock, down the path, left of first building, right of wrecked boat, firing off one magazine of the M-4 on the way, then across and jumping off the dock, swimming around to the right and back on shore, stopping right at the entrance of the dock. Running always, never walking or stopping. Just in case someone wants to duplicate it.

FarCry 1.3, 1024x768x32, Very High settings with "Antisotropic Filtering Level = 2"
"r_TexNormalMapCompressed 1" in the shortcut target field and these HDR settings in the Sytem.cfg:
r_HDRBrightOffset = "8.000000"
r_HDRBrightThreshold = "6.000000"
r_HDRLevel = "0.400000"
r_HDRRendering = "2"

Driver version: 6.1.1.7
2004-10-27 22:27:06 - FarCry
Frames: 1401 - Time: 39327ms - Avg: 35.624 - Min: 26 - Max: 45

Driver version: 7.0.4.1
2004-10-27 22:41:04 - FarCry
Frames: 1486 - Time: 38819ms - Avg: 38.280 - Min: 25 - Max: 61

Not a huge difference, or a real scientific benchmark, but it looks to give a little boost.

AMD XP2700
BFG 6800GT OC
1 gig PC2700 Dual Channel (2x512 matched)
nForce2 chipset

Because Far Cry is a pig and there is a lot of time spent with low FPS?
