As with our FX-8150 review, I’m testing three games today. The first, Crysis 2, remains unchanged, as does the third, World of Warcraft. In between, though, we have DiRT 3 (rather than F1 2011). As a last-minute addition, a bit of Battlefield 3 scaling analysis makes it in at the end. For the other titles, two- and three-way SLI testing rounds out the game benchmarks.
There remains very little reason to favor one processor over the others in a graphically-demanding title like Crysis 2. Of course, our GeForce GTX 580 is the bottleneck, and from 1680x1050 to 2560x1600, performance remains fairly consistent.
