Far Cry 2 is easy enough on the system to let loose 8xAA. In this case, the GeForce cards really come into their own, but the Radeons are delivering smooth performance, too. None of the factory overclocks are making a huge difference here.
At 2560x1600, the GeForce cards claim the first win, but the factory-overclocked Zotac AMP! edition card establish only a slight advantage over the reference design. At this setting, none of the Radeon HD 5870 cards can manage a minimum frame rate of 30 FPS, overclocked or not.
