Far Cry Primal

Far Cry Primal is another Ubisoft game, but it runs on a different engine than The Division—the latest version of the long-running and well-respected Dunia engine. We test the game with the free 4K HD Texture Pack installed.

The GTX 1060 beats out the RX 480 and the GTX 980, but just barely. The lead is more pronounced at 1080p resolution. The older $200 cards? Barely playable.
