Game Benchmarks – Real Time Strategy
Supreme Commander is another game the sub-$1,000 system struggles with, but as a real-time strategy game and not a twitch game, 30 frames per second average is more than enough for smooth game play. This game really appears to like more than two CPU cores, and the sub-$4,000 system’s combination of four cores and high clock speed when over clocked takes it to a new level.
Warhammer doesn’t appear to be multi-threaded at all, while very clock speed dependent. The sub-$1,000 and sub-$2,000 machines are locked in a dead heat, with the fast sub-$4,000 machine taking high honors once again.
