"Gamers who play the 32-bit version of Far Cry will be ecstatic with the
64-bit version of Far Cry because AMD64 technology has transformed the 2004 best
seller into an even more adrenaline-charged game," said Marty Seyer, corporate
vice president and general manager, AMD Microprocessor Solutions Sector.
"Die-hard gamers know the single-core AMD Athlon 64 FX processor delivers the
world’s best gaming performance."

PC users who smartly invested in AMD’s premiere AMD Athlon 64 FX processor
for gaming can now experience the next evolution in high-performance 64-bit
computing. Because most games today are single-threaded, gamers’ performance
needs will be best served with the single-core AMD Athlon 64 FX processor.

Microsoft® Windows® XP Pro x64 Edition operating system and 64-bit optimized Far
Cry software, gamers will notice larger and more detailed areas to explore,

"AMD64 platforms are providing game developers with incredible game design,
flexibility and freedom. There are specific enhancements we wanted to create,
like view distances, texture details, map sizes and graphics that 32-bit
platforms could not handle," said Cevat Yerli, chief executive officer and
president at Crytek. "Working with AMD64 processors in a 64-bit world has given
us valuable insights on how we can continue to leverage 64-bit processing in the
future. What is most eye-opening about the 64-bit Far Cry is that we are only
now beginning to tap into the potential power of the AMD64 platform."

With the new era of 64-bit programming, game developers now have a rich
landscape of tools to develop games that a few years ago could never have been
imagined.
