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.
All in game settings were set to their defaults with the exception of AA and VSync as both of those options were turned off.
Benchmark Results: At a resolution of 1920x1200 with no AA enabled we found the ATI Radeon HD 5870 graphics card appeared to be the limiting factor as the score didn't change much between the different platforms. With the resolution dropped down to 800 x 600 some performance differences can be seen, but who plays games on a $999 processor and $400 video card at 800 x 600? A small difference could be seen between the Intel Core i7 processors, but the gap grows larger when looking at the AMD series. Resident Evil 5 would appear to run on just six threads and that is likely the reason the AMD Phenom II X6 1090T processor at 3.2GHz was able to perform better than the 3.4GHz AMD Phenom II X4 processor. The AMD Phenom II X6 1055T processors 2.8GHz showed a significant performance drop, so it looks like you need more than 2.8GHz to get the most from a Radeon HD 5870 graphics card.
