12: Conclusion

Not only is FarCry an excellent benchmark, its also a fantastically enjoyable game. The game uses a lot of graphic processing so we have our Crucial X850 XT graphics card for that side of things, but the game also uses quite a bit of processing power for all of the physics and ragdoll effects that are on show.This was the first games title that I really noticed a major difference, everything was super smooth even in ultra mode at 1680x1050 on the 4000. Farcry uses both the graphics card and the processor (more work on the processing than in Doom 3) to the best of their abilities, so it was good to see the 4000+ moving away with much better frame rates over the 3000 processor.
