Benchmark Results: Call Of Duty: Modern Warfare 2

AMD Phenom II X6 1090T And 890FX Platform Review: Hello, Leo
By

Despite what we saw in the previous two games, Call of Duty actually seems to favor AMD’s architecture by a bit. The gap between our fastest and slowest contenders isn’t large, so it’s likely that our Radeon HD 5850 is holding back performance at each quality setting. But it is worth noting that the Phenom II X6 1090T ends up on top for each one of the three resolutions.

    Being that I have seemed to changed my use of my pc more toward video editing than gaming I am definitely selling off my Q9550 and going with the AMD X6. I still game some but don't care to have the cutting edge video card atm so this is perfect for me. I'm buying from AMD for my next cpu! Way to go AMD! I still have another Q9550 system so don't think I'm an AMD fan boy but I do love it when AMD gives such a great value for such a great product. Everyone should...

    Great. Six cores for under $200, and I don't have to change my mobo and memory cards. Can't go wrong with that!

    I think you should add Bad Company 2 to the benchmarks. ;)

    My 4 core Core2Quad @ 2.83 is still working everything great, so I won't be upgrading. Nice to see the price for 6 cores is very reasonable though!

    Finally this article comes out. I've been waiting since the morning for this. Lol but anyway, good read.

    Got some GTX 480 numbers in there as well txt, and the results weren't much prettier.

    Is the X6 1090T not oc'able at all? It would seem there should be some headroom for overclock to some degree. Starting out at 3.2g makes me think you should be able to get fairly close to 4.0.

    I was able to hit 3.7 with Turbo CORE enabled fairly easily. It might go higher, but I'd argue this probably isn't as much of an overclocking chip as a 965 might be.

    Where can I sign up to buy this thing NOW. It looks good considering the price. 6 cores is better than 4 IMHO.

    Good to hear they're getting back into the performance market and still focusing on value.

    Actually it's under 300$, but still really affordable :)  to bad i'd have to change my mobo and ram for it :)  so i'll stick to my 4 cores for the time being :D

    So, my understanding the only ocing you can do is with turbocore? 2 cores or less are working to hit the 3.7? If this is so, this is a little disappointing but as I said for video editing, 6 cores even at 3.2 sounds sweet to me. Thanks for the review and the replies! Nice job!

    I remember we did have few articles here talking about what happen when there are multiple programs running at the same time (which I belive is closer to the reality). Will 6-core system look better when there are 2-3 program running at the same time?
    Like playing games while having handbreak and antivirus running at the same time.

    I can see why you would but do you realize the time this would take to do everyones favorite game? Not a reasonable thing to do...
