Hello members.

I considered buying Far Cry 3, but it seems I can't find ANY benchmarkings just yet, I don't wanna buy a game which I can run at great details.

My specs are

Kingston HyperX 8GB DDR3-1600 RAM
Gigabyte GA-B75M-D3H MOBO
Club 3D GeForce GTX660 2GB GDDR5
Raidmax RX-700AC 80+ bronze certified
Intel® Core™ i5-3570
Raidmax silent Phantom midi tower

Playing at 1920x1080

I've heard that GTX 680 should just be 'capable' of playing in ultra details, which seems very unreal!

lower the resolution but keep everything else at ultra, lowering the resolution is not that bad.
or just wait for better drivers from nvidia, in teh mean time game's price will drop too.

Far cry 3 looks almost the same on the consoles, and that old hardware can handle it?????
this is just bad optimisation

Your board will give you 30 fps at the lowest settings.


It says "maxed out" with no AA on 1920x1080 at 33,4 fps?

Still seems fairly low compared to other demanding games such as BF3, Crysis 2 or Planetside 2 which runs at avg. 50 fps on ultra settings!

It looks like it has been updated and the game gets about 32 fps minimum and 35 fps average on 1080p Ultra Settings no AA

Well, it does kill but im not sure its such a beast. It runs on consoles so its either a bad port, not very badly optimized for PCs.

There is a chnce later on patches will solve this problem, but personally i would not recommend buying a game before you can actually see some gameplay of it and figure out it its actually worth your money.

Babernet_1, i think you are reading the charts wrong,
it says maxed out, 30 fps minimum, full hd, no AA for the gtx 660.
If the game actually is good, im planing to be playing it on a 560 Ti, and im quite sure ultra settings can be archived with 1650x1080 with sweet Fx AA.

And it looks like HDAO (High Definition Ambient Occlusion) is turned on which results in a huge performance hit.

I guess I'll sit and wait in my dark, unknown chambers of gaming, to that very day, when prices are dropping and drivers are getting better. See you in 2020, guys.. -.-'

FC3 isn't optimized well so, if you're looking at ultra settings, you might have to wait until there are patches that fix some optimization issues

Where is this denmark and can I live there....? Your card should be fine keep the AA off HDAO off, all that bling and you will get above 60 fps. The game is badly optimized for a computer, but there will be patches there always are.

I can at least use FXAA, right? I'd like HDAO, and it isn't a problem for me in Planetside 2, so I don't see why it should run fluently in Far Cry 3?

Well, Denmark is some Islands and a Dick shaped piece of land which points out of North Germany, we also own Greenland - Hurray...

And it uses the old beta driver, the new 310.64 is supposed to increase performance of 40%!
