Six Socket FM2 Motherboards For AMD's Trinity APUs

Benchmark Results: Skyrim

We keep turning to our test notes to check playability, and again find that every board plays the game smoothly from the APU's Radeon HD graphics core at 1600x900 and medium quality settings. Higher settings weren't smooth on any board, so we’re left to judge each based on non-gaming criteria.

A difference of 3 FPS does look fairly large when charted on a narrow performance scale, but we’re not concerned, since none of these resolutions are playable at Skyrim’s High quality preset. These averages become additional data for each board’s overall performance index.
