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.
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.
Benchmark Results: The AMD A8-3850 APU has roughly twice the gaming graphics performance of the Intel Core i3-2105 processor as you can see from the three resolutions we tested at above. The AMD A8-3850 was able to break 60FPS at 1280x720, which is amazing for not having a discrete add-in video card in the system! This is a DirectX 10 game title that might be a tad old, but still fun to play and for a mainstream APU that costs $135 it's pretty damn impressive.
