AMD Phenom II X4 975BE and 840 CPU ReviewsMon, Jan 03, 2011 - 11:01 PM
StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty is a military science fiction
real-time strategy video game developed by Blizzard Entertainment for
Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X. A sequel to the award-winning 1998 video
game StarCraft, the game was released worldwide on July 27, 2010. It is
split into three installments: the base game with the subtitle Wings of
Liberty, and two upcoming expansion packs, Heart of the Swarm and
Legacy of the Void. StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty has had a successful
launch, selling three million copies worldwide in less than a month.
We tested Starcraft II at Ultra Settings on both the GPU and CPU at resolutions of 1024×760, 1680×1050, and 1920×1080.
Benchmark Results: Similar to the Left 4 Dead 2 results, the Phenom II X4 975 BE is able to match the performance of the Intel Core i5 750, which is expected to be the same price point as the X4 975 BE. The X4 840 is able to perform slightly better than the QX6700 in Starcraft II.
