720P Gaming Benchmarks 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:
As usual, AMD’s Piledriver architecture gets brutalized in gaming benchmarks. This all comes down to single thread performance and unfortunately, neither of these two CPUs has that in abundance.
