AMD X4 [email protected] vs [email protected], in 25 game benchmarks, all HD video recorded! psolord Oct 14th, 09, 07:31 PM #1

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 [email protected], 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
my rig: it isn't an oil rig. how i wish it was.

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!

@Niceone

Can't wait for those cookies!

@Weib
Errrm....thanks, I guess!

Actually I am not too free nor a fanatic. Just an enthusiast is all...! I've been helped a lot of times by the web and just want to give something back!
