Game Benchmarks: Far Cry 2
At very high settings, the stock Core i7 is simply outclassing the overclocked Phenom II 955 in this game, too. With silky-smooth performance from both systems, it doesn’t matter much, but it's still a little surprising. What happens when we crank up the AA?
Here, things aren’t looking as good for the Gamer Dragon. Even though its graphics system is superior, Far Cry 2 is putting a heavy-enough load on the CPU to handicap it. The Phenom II X4 955 just can’t cope as well as the Core i7-920, even when overclocked to 3.6 GHz. The overclocked i7-920 is delivering almost double the performance at lower resolutions.
