Games

Crysis DX9 800 x 600, low details

Crysis is still one of the games which has very high system requirements. Therefore developer Crytek implemented Direct3D-10-API, High-Dynamic-Range-Rendering, Parallax Occlusion Mapping, Soft Shadows, Motion Blur, Depth of Field as well as Soft Particles. We test Crysis by using DirectX9 to show CPU-sacaling especially which low resolutions. If we look at the high resolutions we are able to spot that the CPUs influence compared to the graphic card becomes much less important.

Crysis DX9 800 x 600, low details GPU / CPU Percent
ASUS Crosshair IV Extreme 118.78fps / 167.72fps 103.15 %
ASUS M4A78-HTPC (DDR2-800-CL4) 117.05fps / 160.01fps 100.00 %
ECS A890GXM-A2 111.22fps / 150.51fps 94.54 %
DFI LanParty DK 790FXB-M3H5 113.25fps / 140.68fps 92.31 %
  Higher is better



Resident Evil 800 x 600, low details

Resident Evil uses nearly every modern rendering technology: HDR, Hemisphere Lighting, Soft Shadows, Soft Particles, Field- und Motion-Blur oder auch Alpha to Coverage and static Ambient Occlusion. Furthermore Resident Evil 5 has been optimized for multicore architectures and already comes DirectX11 ready. By using the DirectX9 as well as the DirectX10 benchmark we can again show you CPU-scaling with low resolutions and the compared to the CPU overproportional influence of the graphics card at high resolutions.

Resident Evil DX9 800 x 600, low details Average Percent
ASUS Crosshair IV Extreme 134.0 fps 102.37 %
DFI LanParty DK 790FXB-M3H5 130.9 fps 107.29 %
ECS A890GXM-A2 124.3 fps 101.88 %
ASUS M4A78-HTPC (DDR2-800-CL4) 122.0 fps 100.00 %
  Higher is better



Street Fighter 4 800 x 600, low details

Street Fighter 4 comes with an extra benchmark version which makes testing you system childrens play. At low resolutions the system requirements are pretty low and we can see CPU-scaling in the results. At high resolution the graphic card becomes more important and the CPUs clock speed has less influence on the fps.

Street Fighter 4 800 x 600, low details Average Percent
ASUS Crosshair IV Extreme 566.52 fps 103.98 %
ASUS M4A78-HTPC (DDR2-800-CL4) 544.85 fps 100.00 %
ECS A890GXM-A2 516.37 fps 94.77 %
DFI LanParty DK 790FXB-M3H5 503.59 fps 92.47 %
