Synthetic Gaming

These tests aren't really game testing but are more synthetic gaming-related tests. For that reason these benchmarks are done using the GeForce GTX 560 Ti graphics card installed and are meant to continue testing the x86 CPU performance of the benchmarked platforms. 


3DMark Vantage


A reliable and popular benchmark, 3DMark Vantage can provide a good insight into overall gaming performance of a system.

 

 

Even though the processor portion of gaming is somewhat limited still today, a fast processor can still make a difference for a highly responsive gaming experience.  The Core i5-3350P does "just fine" in these tests including the first test that is much more heavily threaded than the second. 


3DMark11


A reliable and popular benchmark, 3DMark Vantage can provide a good insight into overall gaming performance of a system.

In the physics portion of the 3DMark11 we find that the FX-8150 with its 8-cores is able to push past the Core i5-3350P but not by a huge amount – 5%.
