Unless he edited the title before I saw this, the thread title says:

"GTX260 216 SLi slightly faster than a single 4870X2
Of course it was edited....

Hold your horses there Tonto... Wait for the official benches for this puppy before declaring this. It may be that FarCry2, like FarCry1, plays better on ATI normally. We would need to see if 10.1 can be disabled also, to see what difference there would be.

Hopefully they add PhysX to it to make the game better.

Ok i will do a comparison when i get onto my desktop later on, the x200m i run on my laptop wouldn't be able to handle it TBH :)

I'm actually looking forward to this game. New engine I hear. Only using a smidgeon of the CryEngine1 I heard, and the rest called Dunia? or Durnia? Crud, someone knows. ;)

Seen it on xbox 360 ... Must say it looks pretty impressive. In fact I'd go as far as to say that it's the best looking xbox 360 game I've seen so far. Haven't seen much yet though, going to give it a closer look tomorrow ...

Here you go: this is all on enthuisiast 2aa 1680x1050

The colours are really off on crysis, its all to bright and colourful it makes it look unrealistic
To me crysis doesnt look that great at all, your probably right that the graphics dont look as detailed but at least they didnt go over the top with contrast and shaders. As a comparison look how realistic GRID looks, that contrast is not too much and the detail is kept consistant and i get close to 70fps instead of 15-30

also they should really allow thumbnail images on this forum, linking to image URL is just really crappy way of showing someone something

No kidding, it is often a month or so after release before the best is out for either company.

from those benchmarks it seems like my system will run Far Cry 2 better than it runs Crysis. i guess ill be buying far Cry 2 instead of trying to download it to see if its worth a crap.

I have to agree with you here.

Umm you do all realize that there is no crossfire profile for Farcry2, right? You do all know ATI released hotfix drivers for the game?

Nothing wrong with these scenes. It looks exactly the way it should look at that solar altitude at that "time of day". You need to get out more and watch the real world for reference. ;)

FC2 doesnt hold a candle to crysis/warhead, even without modfied configs. Its just too much tailored to consoles.

i cant really get a good look at what a real rainforest looks like as i live in a temperate region where i see more greys dark greens and blacks more than anything else, but until i do it will still look horribly distorted to me much like the origional far cry
