The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

AMD Desktop Trinity Update: Now With Core i3 And A8-3870K

We really probably should have dialed Skyrim down more than its Medium quality preset, but game looked so bad already that anything lower would have just been going through the motions. You can muster close-to-playable performance on the Trinity-based A10 and A8 at 1280x720, but 1680x1050 and 1920x1080 run too slowly.

Intel’s chips are lucky to break double-digit average frame rates, though, and are wholly unsuited to a mainstream title like this one.
