Game Benchmarks: Far Cry 2
Here, the Core i7 shows a solid lead over the Phenom II system, especially when overclocked. Both systems also offer perfectly playable performance, even when clocked at stock speeds.
With AA enabled the situation doesn't change much. Far Cry 2 appears to favor the Core i7 architecture, especially when overclocked. But as we mentioned before, both systems are perfectly playable at stock speeds.
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.
