Intel Core i7-875k and i5-655k processor review

Far Cry 2 (commonly abbreviated as “FC2 or “fc2″) is an open-ended first-person shooter developed by Ubisoft Montreal and published by Ubisoft. It was released on October 21, 2008 in North America and on October 23, 2008 in Europe and Australia. It was made available on Steam on October 22, 2008. Crytek, the developers of the original game, were not involved in the development of Far Cry 2.

Ubisoft has marketed Far Cry 2 as the true sequel to Far Cry, though the sequel has very few noticeable similarities to the original game. Instead, it features completely new characters and setting, as well as a new style of gameplay that allows the player greater freedom to explore different African landscapes such as deserts, jungles, and savannas. The game takes place in a modern-day East African nation in a state of anarchy and civil war. The player takes control of a mercenary on a lengthy journey to locate and assassinate “The Jackal,” a notorious arms dealer.

Far Cry 2 is still a popular game and the open world environment can be taxing on even the latest hardware available today.

We are running the game in DX10 mode at 1680×1050 with everything set to very high.

As this engine is particular intensive in an outdoor environment we felt it would be interesting to monitor the minimum frame rates and how each of the processors would help to maintain minimum frame rates across the various sections. The overclocked 655k and 875k processors deliver the highest performance with the 1090T X6 Phenom also really delivering a great gaming experience.
