'Far Cry 2' playable on modest gaming PCs
Early 'Far Cry 2' benchmark results show promise for midrange PCs.
Based on a report from PC Games Hardware (via VoodooExtreme), it seems forthcoming shooter
We're also excited that it apparently scales very well according to the number of CPU cores you have. Few games really tax the CPU power of even quad core PCs. With Intel's newchips hitting eight cores (and assuming Far Cry 2 will scale across all of them), we're glad to hear game developers are finally starting to take full advantage of all of that computing power.
Now we just hope a) the game is fun, and that you might actually care how fast it runs, and b)doesn't thwart our own benchmarking efforts, which require us to install a game on every gaming system we test. The game seems to have a robust built-in benchmarking tool (increasingly rare lately), which we'd love to put to work.
