System Benchmarks (pg.2)



Civilization V: Gods & Kings Unit Benchmark


Civilization V includes a number of benchmarks which run on the CPU, GPU or a combination thereof. The Unit Benchmark simulates thousands of units and actions being generated at the same time, stresses multi core CPUs, system memory and GPU We give the non-rendered score below as it is more pertinent to overall CPU performance within the application.


RESULTS: Here AMD’s new APU drops further back from the pack and actually finishes in last place. It really seems like the Piledriver cores don’t like certain applications.



PCMark 7


PCMark 7 is the latest iteration of Futuremark’s system benchmark franchise. It generates an overall score based upon system performance with all components being stressed in one way or another. The result is posted as a generalized score. We also give the Computation Suite score as it isolates the CPU and memory within a single test, without the influence of other components.



RESULTS: In a bout of redemption for the A10-5800K, PCMark shows it running neck and neck with the Intel i3 3225 which is a great result considering how close the two are in terms of pricing. It also handily beats the Llano APUs by an arm’s length.
