DX11: FarCry 4
FarCry 4 was made publicly available on November 18th of 2014 as a sequel to the fairly popular PC port FarCry 3. Although the stories are completely unrelated, they do share the same game engine which at the time when FarCry 3 was released, was called the graphics card widow maker. Just like many PC games lately, when FarCry 4 was released, there were various issues with it’s unstable performance as well as a collection of bugs that deteriorated the gameplay experience. Fortunately, Ubisoft has since patched the game to at least give decent performance to users.
FarCry 4 Benchmark Settings
- Graphics Quality: Ultra Preset.
What surprised me the most is that even at 1440p the game was playable. However, there were some scenes in which the frames dropped constantly, but the average frame rate stayed the same. The GeForce GTX 960 gains an average 5 frames more than it’s predecessor, the GeForce GTX 760 at 1440P which is really not a lot. But at 1080P, the GeForce GTX 960 Strix shines with a 25% increase in frame rates over the GeForce GTX 760, and a 40% performance increase over the GeForce GTX 660 ti.
