FIFA 11 is the 18th title in Electronic Arts' FIFA series of football video games. Developed by EA Canada, it was published by Electronic Arts worldwide under the EA Sports label. It was released on 28 September 2010 in North America, 30 September 2010 in Australia, and 1 October 2010 in Europe for all platforms, except the Wii and Nintendo DS.
We tested FIFA 2011 at its highest settings and 4x Anti-Aliasing at three resolutions, 1024x768, 1680x1050, and 1920x1080.
Performance in FIFA 2011 for all CPUs was stellar even with the settings cranked to the maximum. It wasn't quite a clean sweep for Sandy Bridge but performance of all Sandy Bridge CPUs was consistently in the top of the chart, even the Core i3 2100. The i7 2600K shows that its extra cache and clock speed is worth a few percentage points of additional performance at the lowest tested resolution.
The overclocked Core i7 2600K is a complete waste here, though 500+fps is a crazy number to see when you're playing a game!
