Next week, Ubisoft will release their second patch to CryTeks FarCry. This is the game that shows off the beautiful CryEngine renderer that CryTek has put together. The images and scenery is truly beautiful, and with the new patch comes a much needed update to run speed (~15%) and run duration (~30%). These new features make the game an even more enjoyable experience.
The FarCry 1.2 will feature a new rendering path based on Shader Model 3.0 (Vertex and Pixel Shader 3.0), which is currently only supported by NVIDIAs 6800 series cards and not by ATIs X800 line of cards.
AnandTech is testing the new patch on six different levels in FarCry.
