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: 1080P gaming really narrows the gap between the i7 4770K / i5 4670K and their immediate competition. Both processors still remain ahead but we can really see how gaming at higher resolutions and detail settings has the potential to make even lower-priced CPUs look great. AMD on the other hand really struggles in gaming benchmarks, even when the settings are turned up.
