720P Gaming Benchmarks (pg.2)


Processors play a huge roll in gameplay performance since they have to process copious amounts of information for the GPU. In the following tests, we use a simple 720P resolution and the lowest possible detail settings in an effort to remove the graphics processor from the equation and place additional pressure on the CPU. 720P was used since it is a resolution that is extensively used by gamers sporting lower end HDTVs and it doesn’t put as much stress upon the GPU as 1080P.

For every one of the following titles, a simple 1 minute gameplay walkthrough was used and the average frames per second was logged via FRAPS.




RESULTS: These two games provide an interesting contrast to past results. Street Fighter is actually GPU-limited at even this low resolution which causes every one of the processors to poll within a few percentage points of one another. Torchlight meanwhile show us what multi core optimizations look like since it tends to use between two and three threads. This causes a leveling of the playing field and AMD’s FX-8350 is able to jump to the middle of the pack.
