Your mission: save the girl, kill all the assholes, save the world. Experience for yourself all the main clichés of the VHS era: nuclear future, cyborgs, bloody dragons, mutants and Michael Biehn...

THE GRAFICAL PART

This subsection of our review highlights the main graphical aspects of this game. Particular attention is paid to the version of the graphics engine used, the version of the API used, graphic settings and the quality of development of the main visual aspects.

Supported OS and graphics API

Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon is supported by major Windows operating systems, which include Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8. Other operating systems are not currently supported by the developers. 

 fc3 blooddragon_d3d11_2013_04_30_13_57_26_507

Priority and main graphics API for multiplayer games Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon is DirectX 9 and DirectX 11. The game runs through the Ubisoft Uplay digital service.

Game engine 

Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon was developed on a modified version Dunia Engine, which was used in "Far Cry 2". Dunia Engine is a game engine developed by Ubisoft Montreal for its internal projects and first used in a first-person shooter Far Cry 2, which is also developed by Ubisoft Montreal.

Dunia Engine_logo

Dunia Engine is a proprietary multi-platform game engine that is used by Ubisoft Montreal only for its own internal projects and is not available for licensing by third parties. The engine supports DirectX 9, DirectX 10, DirectX 10.1 and DirectX 11. The word "dunia" means "world", "earth", "life" in Urdu, Arabic, Kurdish, Farsi, Sanskrit, Hindi, Malay, Indonesian and Turkic languages . 

 General characteristics

-Dunia Engine has the following features:
-Supports Microsoft Xbox 360 and Sony PlayStation 3 game consoles.
-API support DirectX 9, DirectX 10 and DirectX 10.1, DirectX 11.
-Destructible environment.
-Dynamic weather.
-Dynamic fire spread, which is also influenced by weather conditions.
-Dynamic vegetation (English RealTree), including growth and regeneration of vegetation.
-Complete cycles of day and night.
-Support for huge open playing spaces, not divided into separate levels.
-Indirect lighting and Radiosity technology.
-Support for amBX technology from Philips, which is intended to create additional special effects and requires special hardware and technical support.
-Non-scripted game artificial intelligence.
-Dynamic music system

According to an official interview, the Dunia Engine used only 2-3 percent of the code of the CryEngine engine, developed by the German company Crytek, since the entire CryEngine code was completely rewritten. However, it is clear that CryEngine is the basis of the Dunia Engine. 

Advanced Game Settings

Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon has a fairly wide range of graphic settings, completely identical to the original Far Cry 3. We can flexibly manipulate various parameters, adjusting them to the performance of our system - both basic and additional settings.

Below we have provided screenshots of the game at various graphics settings, where our readers can see the difference between the minimum, medium, and maximum graphics quality settings. Comparisons of modes with and without anti-aliasing are also presented.

Low quality settings

As we can see, the difference between different quality settings is very vague, bright and smudged colors very significantly blur the graphic stuffing... 

General visual design and game physics

Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon is based on the same game engine as Far Cry 3 has the same graphics settings, and you won't believe it - the graphics in these games are exactly the same! so specifically describe all the advantages and disadvantages Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon makes no sense - if you played the original game, then you can imagine what this project looks like.

 fc3 blooddragon_d3d11_2013_04_30_13_58_47_686

Among the innovations, the only thing that can be highlighted is the new style of the setting - all colors have a brightly poisonous shade in order to better emphasize the features of the post-nuclear apocalypse future. But again, no matter how the developers try to give out Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon for a new game, throughout the entire gameplay we are not left with the effect that this is just an addon...

GPU test

All video cards were tested at maximum graphics quality using MSI Afterburner. The purpose of the test is to determine how video cards from different manufacturers behave under the same conditions. The average and minimum FPS were taken as performance indicators. Below is a video of the test segment: 

Our video cards were tested at separate screen sizes of 1920x1080 and 2560x1600 with the maximum graphics quality settings allowed Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon. The test was carried out in various smoothing modes. Multi-chip configurations from NVIDIA and AMD showed an increase in performance, which indicates sufficient driver optimization, although CrossFireX AMD had minor problems at low screen resolutions...

Testing at maximum quality settings 1920x1080 no AA

fc3 1920 

At a resolution of 1920x1080 at maximum settings no AA, an acceptable level of performance was shown by video cards of the Radeon HD 6850 level or GeForce GTX 650The optimal video cards will be solutions HD 6870 or GeForce GTX 560.

Testing at maximum quality settings 2560x1600 no AA

 fc3 2560

At a resolution of 2560x1600 at maximum settings no AA an acceptable level of performance was shown by video cards HD 7850 or GeForce GTX 660The optimal video cards will be Radeon HD 7870 or  GeForce GTX 580 . 

Testing at maximum quality settings 1920x1080 MSAA 4X

 fc3 1920 4x

At a resolution of 1920x1080 at maximum settings MSAA 4X, video cards of the Radeon HD 5870 or GeForce GTX 560 Ti level showed an acceptable level of performance. The optimal video cards will be the HD 7870 or GeForce GTX 660 Ti. 

Testing at maximum quality settings 2560x1600 MSAA 4X

 fc3 2560 4x

At a resolution of 2560x1600 at maximum settings MSAA 4X An acceptable level of performance was shown by HD 7970 or GeForce GTX 670 video cards. The optimal video cards would be GeForce GTX 590 and higher solutions.

Testing at maximum quality settings 1920x1080 MSAA 8X

fc3 1920 8x

At a resolution of 1920x1080 at maximum settings MSAA 8X Video cards of the Radeon HD 7950 or GeForce GTX 660 Ti showed an acceptable level of performance. The optimal video cards will be HD 7970GE or GeForce GTX 680 solutions.

Testing at maximum quality settings 2560x1600 MSAA 8X

fc3 2560 8x

At a resolution of 2560x1600 at maximum settings MSAA 8X video cards GeForce GTX TITAN and higher showed an acceptable level of performance.

From the above test, we can conclude that cards from different manufacturers behave differently at different quality settings. AMD video cards showed better performance in modes without anti-aliasing and in 1920x1080 mode with 4x anti-aliasing. In the most severe conditions in Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon with maximum resolution and maximum anti-aliasing settings look better than all NVIDIA video cards, showing dominant performance.

VRAM test

memory GPU

Testing of video memory consumed by the game was carried out by the program MSI Afterburner. The indicator was based on results on top video cards from AMD and NVIDIA with separate screen sizes 1920x1080 and 2560x1600 with different anti-aliasing settings.

Testing at maximum memory GPU quality settings

The recommended amount of video memory usage for this game is around 1024-2048 MB for all different graphics quality settings. For ultra settings you will need more than two gigabytes of video memory.

CPU test

 fc3 blooddragon_d3d11_2013_04_30_13_46_04_078

We tested processor dependence on 19 models of basic configurations that are relevant today. The test was carried out in those places where the value of video cards for the game is minimal and its load was less than 99%, this time at a resolution of 1920x1080 with maximum graphics quality settings.

Previously, the boost was 950-970, now it’s 1020-1050, sometimes it jumps more depending on the game, but in the game it didn’t go above 990
Here is the answer to all questions. I didn’t know that 670s could boost so weakly. Mostly people boost 1090-1135. I have 1124 stable. Apparently, at the stand, the boost is about the same as yours.Posted by LEOPARD680GTX:
the better it is, the more expensive it is than yours??? You know, sometimes price is not an indicator!!! I met this very often!! especially in Maretinka!!!
With my VK, the bench processor, of course, will not have an advantage over 2500K, but with titanium or 690... But I said that to emphasize the absurdity of your post - they say, the systems are different and all that.

[quote name="Naglets15"]Hmm. I also decided to check the results and for the first time it sucks. At max. settings in FHD, DX11 and MSAA x4 on wood 320.00 on my 670 without overclocking min fps - 35, avg - 42. Here min - 30, avg - 37. I measured it with fps several times. The difference is significant. What's the catch?
The question is, litsukha or pirate - on a pirate HDAO is buggy and works like HBAO, although it should charge 5-10% more percent.[/quote] And here is the second reason)) and Naglets15, the better it is, the more expensive it is than yours??? You know, sometimes price is not an indicator!!! I met this very often!! especially in Maretinka!!!
