AMD Radeon HD 7970 tested with 7 CPUs from Intel and AMD
A few days ago we came from Inpai one review which explored the performance of a video card based on the AMD Radeon HD 7970 GPU on a total of 13 microprocessors from Intel and AMD , this time we get a similar comparative by OCaholic, testing this After seven microprocessors.
What would be the purpose of coverage to give you a similar analysis in such a short time? The answer to this is that the analysis by focusing on games Inpai FPS (First Person Shooting) while OCaholic tests are based on different types of games, some of them more dependent on the CPU, which grouped in three categories. Without further ado, here are some of their test:
FPS games are known for their low dependence of the CPU, but its use by multiple threads for processing and physical effects, so these games depend on a good balance between performance per cycle and number of cores, so having with CPUs with more than two cores is vital.
RPG games (role) show similar requirements (in terms of CPU) that the FPS, so the CPUs with two or fewer cores are not much favored.
Strategy games largely make use of only one nucleus, so it is not affected by the number of microprocessor cores, especially matter yield per cycle, in this test see as E8400 exceeds the overclocked q6600 (both running at 3GHz) and the FX-8150 losing to the FX-4170 and in some cases by the phenom II X4 970.
