It is immediately obvious that Far Cry 2 is much easier for the PC to run than Crysis. It’s interesting that at stock speed, the CPU appears to be limiting the frame rates to just under 90 FPS, but when the CPU is overclocked, there is a more significant performance spread.
Cranking both the visual detail to the Ultra High setting and AA to 4x, even the stock system is able to deliver average frame rates of 76 FPS at 1920x1200. Once again, the benchmark seems to be CPU-limited, as the spread between different resolutions is definitely wider when overclocked.
At such high-performance levels, however, the results are almost irrelevant. Indeed, this system can handle far Cry 2 at maximum detail and high AA without breaking a sweat, even at stock speeds.
