Game Benchmarks: Crysis
Let's start with Crysis. In the Cyberpower review, the game was somewhat dominated by the Intel Core i7 system and its dual GeForce GTX 260 graphics cards:
Right out of the gate, we're seeing a huge difference between these new results and the Cyberpower Gamer Dragon results. Here, while the Core i7 system is showing a slight advantage at lower resolutions when overclocked, the Phenom II system is holding its own where it counts at 1920x1200.
And, when anti-aliasing (AA) is applied...
...the Phenom II system with its Radeon HD 4890 cards even wins by a few frames.
Adding in nvidia cards would be interesting to see, yes, but then we're moving more into engine optimizations and such, and things get less exact. Maybe the effect of software preferences on hardware architecture can be a future writeup? Nice article, here, though.
As I expected on the numbers, but I now want to see if the 790X chipset is to blame, or the Gigabyte board itself, or perhaps the memory controller onboard the CPU is to blame?
Did you read the conclusion at all? AMD lost by the numbers. That's not pro-intel, it's pro-logic. It's pro-science. That's the way the world works.
Wow. You take things way too seriously.
