The Cloud Gate benchmark is geared toward the Windows notebook and home PC market, and I see in the results that extra CPU horsepower helps the AMD-based platforms attain an extra 13 percent on the combined score. This lead disappears once I run the mid-range PC workload, where the physics component becomes less important. Both A78 results are right on top of each other, and it is starting to show how consistent the platform is.
Unigine Valley also reveals consistency across all three platforms, with a slight edge to Intel for average and minimum frame rates. However, at this resolution, anything below 30 FPS is marginal. Unigine Heaven does show more variation, and I finally see an instance where the MSI A78 board has higher performance than Gigabyte's offering, even if it is only a few frames.
