DX11: Far Cry 3

Shoot first, ask questions later. In Far Cry 3, players step into the shoes of Jason Brody, a man alone at the edge of the world, stranded on a mysterious tropical island —  players will slash, sneak and shoot their way across the island in a world that has lost all sense of morality. As Jason Brody, you'll notice that the visual quality of the game is pretty darn good, but very heavy on the GPU alright. System requirements will vary greatly depending the graphics settings, but a modest PC will be required to run the game at medium settings or better. Far Cry is built on the Dunia game engine, similar to the prequels but it certainly has been updated and is DirectX 11 compatible.




Far Cry 3 has four quality modes: LOW, MEDIUM, HIGH and VERY HIGH. Next to that you'll have settings and preferences you can choose from. The game however can be VERY taxing on the GPU at times. Our settings:

  • Very High-quality DX11 mode
  • 2x MSAA (Anti-aliasing)
  • 16x AF (Anisotropic Filtering)

For comparative reasons you should be focusing at 2560x1600 as that is the resolution where cards like these get more GPU bound. 



Far Cry 3 is pretty harsh with Very High image quality settings and MSAA enabled. But obviously no challenge for GTX 770 SLI, even at 2560x1600 which quite honestly is over 4 Mpixels being rendered. Bear in mind that for mainstream cards we review at 1920x1200, and for high-end class cards 2560x1440 as shown above.
