1080P Gaming Benchmarks


While lower resolution gaming highlights processor bottlenecks, most people use slightly higher resolution monitors and want to play with increased detail settings. In these situations, the CPU tends to take a back seat to the graphics processor but even at 1080P (ie: 1920x1080) a slower CPU can still have a drastic impact upon in-game performance. In order to illustrate this, we have carried over the games from our previous tests, pumped detail levels to their max and used the increasingly popular 1080P resolution standard.




RESULTS: As the GPU becomes more of a bottleneck, we can see that single thread CPU performance becomes less of a determining factor in overall framerates. While the FX-4300 and FX-6300 may not be able to quite reach the level of Intelís i3 3225, they put up a pretty good fight.
