CPU Scaling With The Radeon HD 5970

Posted on Friday, November 27 2009 @ 05:30:20 CET by

The time has come once again for us to take the gaming industry’s fastest performance graphics card and couple it with a wide range of processors from both AMD and Intel. In this first part, which will be just one of many, we are taking the Core i7 (LGA1366) processors and testing them with the Radeon HD 5970 at frequencies from 2.0GHz through to 4.0GHz...

Although we have only tested with the Core i7 processors thus far, the results are still quite interesting. For the most part the games were still very much GPU limited despite using the Radeon HD 5970, which is currently the world's fastest single graphics card. Games such as BattleForge, Crysis Warhead, Tom Clancy’s H.A.W.X, Wolfenstein and Far Cry 2 showed little to no difference in performance when clocking our Core i7 processor anywhere from 2.0GHz to 4.0GHz.
