$185 Gaming CPU’s: AMD 5600+ Versus Intel E6300Thu, Apr 19, 2007 - 12:00 AM
Sierra; F.E.A.R w/ v1.0.8 patch:
F.E.A.R. (First Encounter Assault and Recon) is a first-person close-quarters combat game for the PC. The story begins when a paramilitary force infiltrates a multi-billion dollar aerospace compound, and the government responds by sending in Special Forces. The group loses contact with the government when an eerie signal interrupts radio communications–and when that interference subsides moments later, the team has been destroyed. That’s where you come in. As part of a classified strike team created to deal with threats no one else can handle, your mission is simple: eliminate the intruders at any cost, determine the origin of the signal, and contain the potential crisis before it gets out of control.
F.E.A.R. is a pretty recent game title that many people are still playing today. At 1024×768 with 4xAA/16xAF we found a 22 frame per second difference (21%) with the AMD Athlon 64 5600+ processor leading the Intel Core 2 Duo E6300.
At the higher resolution of 1600×1200 there was only a 2 frame per second difference shown on the benchmark.
