Gaming and 3D performance
Far Cry 2
Featuring fantastic visuals courtesy of the Dunia Engine, this game also features one of the most impressive benchmark tools we have seen in a PC game. For single GPU results we set the performance feature set to Very High, graphics to High, and enable DX10 with 2xAA.
Not a great show here from AMD in comparison to the Intel counterparts, but playable nevertheless.
Warhammer 40K: Dawn of War II
We are big fans of the Warhammer franchise, especially Dawn of War II. One of the latest RTS games in our library is also one of the more demanding titles on both the CPU and GPU. We crank all options to Ultra, enable AA, and then run the built-in performance benchmark for our result.
Things are a bit better in Warhammer, with AMD a shade behind the standard.
AutoCAD 2010 x64—Cadalyst 2008
We utilize AutoCAD 2010 x64 and the Cadalyst Labs 5 benchmark.
We were expecting a bit of a better standing for AMD’s HD 4290 IGP in the Cadalyst benchmark but it appears Intel’s processor crunching advantage and bus I/O performance keeps things on a near even keel with the i3 540.
