I play Far Cry 3 with all graphical settings highest at 1920x1080p (highest my tv/monitor goes). I have MSAA and SSAO on. i think HDAO and HBAO look terrible?? I haven't tested frame rate but it's certainly in the 40+ easy. I don't get stutter or loading and i also set GPU to 5frames loading. It's a gorgeous game indeed, night times are amazing with the burnt sky reflecting on the water in patches and shining through individual cracks in leaves. Also the gunshot direction is modeled superbly as is the muffled through dense foliage/trees or within buildings.
Trouble is, when you get as good as FC3 is, it's easier to ask for more. ie; better damage model on vehicles or tracks in the sand/road or craters with explosives. Grab a hang glider and set-out from a high peak and enjoy the eagles company and it is pure visual bliss! Texture detail is amazing down to deep pitted rust on boats and jeeps in a dimensional way.
Fast travel keeps this fresh to offload a full rucksack of spoils. The interface could do with an overhaul imo. The ability to multi-select items for selling/discarding would be grateful, you can't even mouse scroll the list. A definate console attribute, but not in gameplay or graphics.. not by a far cry MILE!!

Do you realise that the Star Trek "Official Trailer" that you have linked here is actually NOT the official trailer, but a fan made trailer using scenes from the first film?

Interesting. I thought Intel would bring something new (i.e. increased speed), but it seems just an graphics chip update. It's good to know that Sandy Bridge was a good investment for years to come.
