    Smile AMD X4 620@3.6Ghz vs Q9550@4.0Ghz, in 25 game benchmarks, all HD video recorded!

    Hey Vr-Zone friends.

    I recently built a new rig for a friend, based on AMD's Athlon II X4 620 (propus) and I was curious to see how good or not, can this <100€ quad core cpu stand against a higher end cpu, in games.

    The systems used, were

    1) Intel Q9550@4.0Ghz, Asus P5Q Deluxe, 4GB DDR2-1000
    2) AMD Athlon II X4 620, Gigabyte GA-770-UD3 rev 2.0, 2GB DDR-800

    Common for both systems were, my overclocked Nvidia GTX 260 core 216, Forceware 190.62, Windows 7 X64. So, hardly a fair comparison, but still...

    I used high settings in games and 4XAA where available, knowingly that it will bring most of the burden to the gpu, but I was specifically trying to see how well can this somewhat budget plattform can cope in real life gaming, with a decent graphics card.

    All benchmarks have been video recorded and uploaded to my Youtube channel. The results are presented in three ways. First, as a normal vbulletin text, with all results being actual hyperlinks to their respective Youtube videos, second with a simple Excel chart with which I calculated the percentage difference and third with typical graphs.

    Text results (the results that do not have a hyperlink are included in the precious hyperink)

    no doubt, performance of L3-less chips are less affected in GPU intensive games

    It would have been more fair if you used the same RAM on both setups.

    I wanted to test how a system with half the price, would fair against another.

    I am sure if I used the same memory, the results would not be any different anyway! Memory speed wouldn't do any good, that's for sure. As for the memory amount, I didn't see any related problems during these runs!
