Far Cry 5 is an action-adventure first-person shooter game developed by Ubisoft Montreal and Ubisoft Toronto and published by Ubisoft for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. It is the eleventh entry and the fifth main title in the Far Cry series, and was released on March 27, 2018.
The game takes place in the fictional Hope County, Montana, where charismatic preacher Joseph Seed and his cult Project at Eden’s Gate holds a dictatorial rule over the area. The story follows an unnamed junior deputy sheriff, who becomes trapped in Hope County and works alongside factions of a resistance to liberate the county from Eden’s Gate. (Wikipedia).
We test using the Ultra preset, with AA and motion blur disabled.
Far Cry 5, when tested at 1080p, is the only instance where we see the Gigabyte Gaming OC outperforming the MSI Gaming X Trio – at this resolution, there is a noticeable CPU bottleneck so the result is not significant. At 1440p and 4K, the Gigabyte shifts down and sits between the Founders Edition and that MSI card, though the margins are very small.
