CPU Gaming Benchmark at low resolution Tags: CPUs Gaming Resolution Benchmark Last response: January 3, 2010 2:40 AM in CPUs Share andy5174 CPUs Authority January 2, 2010 9:00:01 PM Some peoples claim that the CPU gaming benchmarks done with low resolution are useless. I have to ask "Do you know that CPU benchmark are always done with low resolution?". Why? In order to eliminate the GFX bottleneck at high resolution! In fact, the higher the resolution you are at, the lower the impact from CPU. Hence, it is best to compare the gaming performance between CPUs at low resolution.

Makes sense to me. The people who are making claims that the CPU gaming benchmarks done with low resolution are useless are in fact themselves making useless claims. | Report abuse Bluescreendeath CPUs Authority January 3, 2010 2:24:25 AM Both CPU and GPUs work harder at higher resolution than at lower resolution. However, GPUs are far more dependent on the resolution than CPUs. So yep, CPU bottlenecks can be sniffed out using lower resolutions and a powerful gaming GPU. | Report abuse andy5174 CPUs Authority January 3, 2010 2:40:43 AM Bluescreendeath said:Both CPU and GPUs work harder at higher resolution than at lower resolution.

Actually, you have to choose the best components for the rest parts in order to eliminate any unnecessary bottleneck. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>CPUs>CPU Gaming Benchmark at low resolution> Related ressources: ForumLow 9600GT SLI benchmark scores ForumNew build low FPS, CPU and GPU Usage ForumFFXIV Benchmark score, low low low ...help!
