Far Cry 5 was released on March 27th, 2018. Far Cry 5 was developed by Ubisoft Montreal and Ubisoft Toronto and published by Ubisoft. Far Cry 5 is an action-adventure first-person shooter video game and the fifth main title in the Far Cry series.
We quickly got into the game ourselves and published a Far Cry 5 Video Card Performance Preview article. In that article we tested only a few of the high-end current GPUs just to get a feel for the game for those playing. We found AMD did well, and overall performance was high in the game.
In today’s full performance evaluation, we are going to take our testing much further. We are now including eleven video cards, from the very high-end GTX 1080 Ti down to the low-tier Radeon RX 460 and GTX 1050 Ti. We will be testing what is playable on each video card as well as comparing each video card to each other at the same apples-to-apples settings. We will be testing AA performance and Volumetric Fog performance. We have sampled VRAM capacity and are also going to look at AA image quality. We are doing this all now having played much further into the game with a brand-new run-through that incorporates all the game mechanics.
