Testing:

Featuring all-new game tests at the time, this benchmark is for use with Vista-based systems. "There are two all-new CPU tests that have been designed around a new 'Physics and Artificial Intelligence-related computation.' CPU test two offers support for physics related hardware." There are four preset levels that correspond to specific resolutions. "Entry" is 1024 x 768 progressing to "Extreme" at 1920 x 1200. Of course, each preset can be modified to arrange any number of user-designed testing. For our testing, I will use the four presets at all default settings.

 

Settings

  • Settings (each preset): Default Testing
  • Entry: 1024 x 768
  • Performance: 1280 x 1024
  • High: 1680 x 1050

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

  

  

  

  

Higher = Better

 

The CPU scores show the i3 2120 to be stronger at stock speeds, as well as when overclocked. Running with a discrete card installed, the 2120 leads the A8-3850 in almost all the tests.
