CPU Gaming Benchmark at low resolution Tags: CPUs Gaming Resolution Benchmark Last response: January 3, 2010 2:40 AM in CPUs Share andy5174 a b à CPUs 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.

The people who are making claims that the CPU gaming benchmarks done with low resolution are useless are in fact themselves making useless claims. Bluescreendeath a b à CPUs 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. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
