Crysis 2 v1.9
The 3D gaming part of this comparative begins with Crysis 2. We used the latest version 1.9 in DirectX 11 and measured the framerate obtained at 1920*1080 Ultra at a precise point in the game during a shoot-out.
Crysis 2 doesn’t really use more than four cores, which means it doesn’t fully exploit the potential of the AMD FXs. With such low performance when only four cores are fully used, the FX-8150 trailed the X6 1100T and the X4 980 here in spite of its clock. The comparison with the Intel offer is simply catastrophic with even the i3-2100 managing to equal it.
Arma II: Operation Arrowhead v1.59
In Arma II: Operation Arrowhead we measured the framerate when crossing a village in the first solo mission, still at 1920*1080 and with all options pushed to a maximum, including visibility.
The same causes and the same effects: as in Crysis 2, the FX-8150 was outdone by its predecessors and the Core i3-2100 was also faster.
