The Radeon X1950 Pro and GeForce 7950 GT suit equally well for running Far Cry at any resolution, including the yet-exotic 1920x1200. Nvidia’s card is somewhat faster in 1280x1024, though.
The same goes for the results the cards show on the Research map. The GeForce 7950 GT provides a considerable performance increase over the GeForce 7900 GT, about 25-30%.
But you should keep it in mind that the GeForce 7950 GT is more expensive than the Radeon X1950 Pro and does not provide as high anisotropic filtering quality as the latter does.
It’s all generally the same in the FP16 HDR mode as in the previous test, but you cannot use resolutions above 1280x1024 on a GeForce 7950 GT or on a cheaper Radeon X1950 Pro here. The Radeon X1900 XT and the GeForce 7900 GTX are the only graphics cards to ensure a comfortable average frame rate in the resolution of 1600x1200 pixels.
