Shadow Of War and Project CARS 2
Middle-earth: Shadow Of War
At a high-enough resolution, most games are limited by graphics processing. But because we've already seen the Athlon 200GE handicapping our GeForce GTX 1080 at 1920 x 1080, it's no surprise that the dual-core chip is notably slower than its competition in a benchmark that's normally graphics-bound. Still, an average of 70+ FPS is pretty good for a $55 chip.
Project CARS 2
Although Project CARS 2 is purportedly optimized for threading, clock rates have the greatest effect on this title's frame rates.
Again, the Athlon shows up at the bottom of our test pool.
