Far Cry® 5: Amazing performance with stunning visuals

5 5 4,532

Ubisoft’s latest blockbuster multi-platform game is highly praised by reviewers, and is a solid hit amongst gamers. Far Cry 5’s performance and visual fidelity combo is the result of a masterful engineering collaboration between Ubisoft’s Montreal and Kiev studios and AMD’s developer engineering teams.

We spent some time with the lead producers, writers and programmers from Ubisoft to get their perspectives on the game as well as the technical partnership with AMD.

And of course Larry is still convinced there are alien technologies EVERYWHERE! Is he right?

The effort made to make this game a nice experience for AMD users is really promising. Especially the X-fire support made me wonder since there was no good news for X-fire (and SLI) support for some months if not years. I can see that this game title has some life in it with additional content and mods in future.

Speaking of X-fire, what about AMD making LiquidVR dual GPU support also more widely available?

With the recent upgrade fro Vive Pro or Samsung Odyssey and soon to be expected higher resolution VR HMDs (Pimax8k, OculusCV2) there has a discussion started among many VR nerds why Serious SAM was the only culprit supporting dual GPUs when for best quality more GPU power is really a necessity.

Surely Elite Dangerous is the most important VR game measured in hours played that has a demanding community, also Skyrim VR and Fallout 4 VR might be titles that people will likely spend 100s of hours in VR, maybe FarCry 5 VR in future?

..... Will AMD look into those titles too to put dual GPU for VR and X-fire use cases back on the headlines again?

The thing I like most in Far Cry 5 is

You can set a bear on fire and send them running into an outpost, mauling and lighting up any of your foes that get in its way that's dope

The Far Cry 5 is the new released game and has spread all over the world. After the installation the installation folder with all the files were saved on the drive, but the drive did not exist after the game was uninstalled. Thus Hard Drive Data Recovery allowed me to get the file from the drive and the game worked without the installation of the game again.

Is that a real question? All electronic components produce heat when they do work, when you game, most components will be running as hard as they can and thus will produce more heat.

As long as the components do not overheat there is no issue.

You will also notice things like audio amplifiers getting hot when you turn up the volume and play your music loud for long periods.
