Benchmark Results: Diablo III
I’ve been playing a little too much Diablo, so it’s pretty easy to take an Inferno-geared Wizard into Normal mode and steam roll a benchmark run of my own creation.
The experience wasn’t enjoyable at 1920x1080 on any APU. The minimum frame rate dips are just too low. Playing at 1680x1050 was a little more viable. However, I had to turn everything down to Low quality just to average more than 40 FPS on the A10-5800K. Although that’s 16% faster than A8-3850, it’s really only at 1280x720 where performance is truly fluid.
At a suitably-low resolution, you’re getting as much as 30% more performance from A10-5800K than A8-3850. Surely, that’d be quite a bit of fun in an HTPC. Though, again, you’d find me using Dual Graphics, at least, if gaming alacrity was really a requirement.
Well at least in gaming
really the question is what gpus are able to hybrid crossfire with it. the information was never public. not all amd gpus will hybrid crossfire with it.
Once they are pitted against each other, that will be A TRUE measure of the APU Trinity's marketability
i mean what is the processor usage during the benchmark ? are all CPU cores used? or only one?
