    Far Cry AMD64 Edition - A First Look at 64-bit Gaming

    Today, however, AMD and Ubisoft are announcing public availability of the first 64-bit patch and content update to Far Cry. As we just implied, the 64-bit add-ons to Far Cry come in two separate packages. First, there's the actual 64-bit patch that installs and enables a native 64-bit binary to run under x64 edition. The second package is the AMD64 Exclusive Content Update that improves the actual content in the game.

    Well the performance did increase even after adding more detail to the levels. Perhaps it would have gone up more if the draw distance and textures hadn't been improved.

    It's going to take time before the software and drivers are really ready for 64 bit.

    No it's not ready yet, I figure another year or 2 before it hits the mainstream.
