Resident Evil 5

Resident Evil 5

Resident Evil 5 is a survival horror video game developed and
published by Capcom. Resident Evil 5 features similar gameplay to
Resident Evil 4, with context-sensitive controls and dynamic cut scenes
also making a return. The player can control Chris Redfield or Sheva
Alomar in a similar fashion to Leon S. Kennedy in Resident Evil 4, with
the same over-the-shoulder perspective.

Resident Evil 5

We ran the Resident Evil 5 benchmark in DX10 mode with all the image quality settings turned down, which just happens to be the default settings of the game.

This game title runs on up to four threads as you can see from the task manager shot above that was taken on a test system that was running the Intel Core i7-2820QM processor.

Resident Evil 5 Benchmark Results

Benchmark Results: The AMD FX8150 was easily able to out perform the Intel Core i7-2600K by 8.6% at 1024×768 and 9.4% at 1920×1080. The Intel Core i7-990X crushed the AMD FX-8150 by 27% at 1024×768, though realistically who is going to run a processor that retails for a thousand bucks at 1024×768? When we look at the performance of the Intel Core i7-990X and the AMD FX-8150 at a much more realistic gaming resolution (for processors of this caliber) the difference is only 2 frames per second (1.3%) in favor of the Intel Core i7-990X. For the $750.00 price difference, a 1.3% gain, well we’ll let you decide on that one.
