Benchmark Results: Burnout Paradise
While F1 2010 is too much for these platforms to handle, Burnout Paradise might be a good alternative:
At 1024x600, the game is playable, although an extra 5 FPS would be appreciated. Burnout Paradise is still a great romp, and it remains the most fun racing game I’ve played. The resolution doesn't make much of a difference beyond 1024x600, as the game appears to be CPU-limited, but 1080p feels a bit choppier than 720p.
Burnout Paradise is playable on both platforms at 1024x600 and on the verge of playable at 720p.

so the gpu's in modern consoles are around the same as the e-350? since these gpus are mainly cpu bound? Also should have put counterstrike fun and not demanding.Reply
Can they make a video game that features a Monopolistic Chip Company who threatens and bribes computer manufacturers to be zombies?Reply
OOPS It's not "Aamusing"Reply
It's Pointless To Compare Them...
Why are you guys not testing some good quality freeware first person shooters, that could run smoothly on those low end PCs? For example:Reply
Urban Terror (my favorite one), Open Arena, Alien Arena? Or at least Quake live?
Cause it's ridiculous to test all those latest shooters on such low end machines...
I was just thinking about reinstalling either of the Star Trek: Armada titles now I've moved to Windows 7, just to see if it removes the stuttering I experienced in XP. Good to see one of those titles here.Reply
Good review; was kinda wishing for the HL2:LC or some previous-gen UT titles though. :)
You could've tried overclocking them :DReply
But seriously, the ION seems to be bottlenecked by the cpu.
Low end graphics! How about testing them with popular MMOG for addicts that travel, but like the portability of netbooks!Reply
Diablo 2? and Warcraft 3?Reply
Thank you for including older titles in your comparison ! I hope you'll be able to include even more of them in any future tests to give each major game engine of the era a fair chance :)Reply
