Game Benchmarks: Resident Evil 5 And Fallout 3
Resident Evil 5 is showing a huge win for the quad-core Athlon II X4 620. We're surprised that the Phenom II X3 710 didn't place a little better compared to the dual-core models in light of the apparent benefit of threading here.
It appears that Fallout 3 favors clock speed and cache above everything else. However, once again, all of the contenders are achieving great performance.
OC potential is one of the most important factors in an article like this. If you can, most deff post an update soon.
I would have to agree with some of the poster's above that overclockability is a key factor in this price segment.
Another game that does this really well is Operation Flashpoint 2. Technically speaking, the grapics arent that great. And I notice alot of places where textures and polys arent what they should be for a PC game. But aside from that, the game looks fantastic and runs very smooth even at the highest settings, and it all has to do with art, not technology.
