Gaming: X2 and Far Cry 1.1
X2 is performing better on the AMD processor here, in a similar fashion to the UT2003 benchmarks we just saw.
This is a newer gaming test to our suite of benchmarks. While it is obvious the AMD processors are defending their names as the best gaming processors you can buy, what is interesting to see here is where the CPU bottlenecks are relieved. At 1600×1200, the main bottleneck is the video card as we see the differences between the different platforms become very small.
