Testing:

Featuring all-new game tests, 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 1024x768 progressing to 'Extreme' at 1920x1200. 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:

  • All default settings in each preset level
  • Entry 1024x768
  • Performance 1280x1024
  • High 1680x1050
  • Extreme 1920x1200

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Across all four presets the Intel CPUs performed at a higher level. The i5 750, clocked almost 1GHz less than the top of the AMD food chain, delivers a superior performance against a much higher clocked CPU. The 870 is no slouch either but the socket 1156 CPU's can't quite keep pace with their socket 1366 brothers.
