CPU impact on gameplay tested

Posted on Sunday, May 24 2009 @ 02:37:24 CEST by


HardOCP has tested the Intel Core i7 920, Intel Core 2 QX9650, AMD Phenom II X4 810 and AMD Phenom II X3 720 BE processors in seven games to find out how much the CPU impacts the overall gameplay experience. You can check it out over here.
In this article we are going to take some popular and new CPUs today and perform our ritual of gameplay evaluation to find the highest playable settings with each CPU. We are also going to provide good old apples-to-apples gameplay in each title to compare clock-for-clock performance and how much overclocking each CPU gains in Frames Per Second (FPS). We will conclude with a summary of gameplay and then our conclusions based on the data collected.

We are going to answer such questions as: Is the Core i7 920 really faster in games than a Core 2 Quad? Is there really any difference in gameplay performance between the triple-core AMD Phenom II X3 720 BE compared to the quad-core AMD Phenom II X4 810? Intel or AMD? Clock speed vs. multi-core? Finally, what value does each CPU bring, and can overclocking help?
