Gaming

Our gaming tests set out to find games that were heavily CPU dependent in order to test for platform differences.  Games at higher resolutions with more emphasis on the GPU won’t show us any differences, if they exist.

FEAR v1.03

We ran FEAR at 1024×768 with the CPU settings at maximum and the GPU settings at medium to show any performance differences off of the GPU.

This benchmark is used by many in the enthusiast crowd to compare their systems so we decided it would be good for our readers if we included numbers from our test system here as well.

The gaming scores on the AB9 Pro are slightly higher. I believe as the Abit BIOS matures that gap will become even larger.
