AMD Carrizo Part 2: A Generational Deep Dive into the Athlon X4 845 at $70by Ian Cutress on July 14, 2016 9:00 AM EST
Total War: Attila at 3 GHz
The Total War franchise moves on to Attila, another The Creative Assembly development, and is a stand-alone strategy title set in 395AD where the main story line lets the gamer take control of the leader of the Huns in order to conquer parts of the world. Graphically the game can render hundreds/thousands of units on screen at once, all with their individual actions and can put some of the big cards to task. In our benchmark, the in-game scripted benchmark is used with the option for ‘unlimited video memory’ enabled.
For this test we used the following settings with our graphics cards:
|Total War: Attila Settings
|ASUS R7 240 1GB DDR3
|MSI GTX 770 Lightning 2GB
|MSI R9 285 Gaming 2G
|ASUS GTX 980 Strix 4GB
|MSI R9 290X Gaming 4G
Again, similar to Alien Isolation, the Kaveri CPU takes the lead in all the tests with Carrizo being 3-4% behind.
