 CS:GO Gaming Performance Benchmarked

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive

csgo

Counter-Strike: Global Offensive (CS:GO) is a multiplayer first-person shooter video game developed by Hidden Path Entertainment and Valve Corporation. It is the fourth game in the main Counter-Strike franchise. Counter-Strike: Global Offensive was released on August 21, 2012. It features classic content, such as revamped versions of classic maps, as well as brand new maps, characters and game modes.

This game remains one of the most played game titles on Steam with daily peaks of over 500,000 gamers playing it daily! That is more than 10x the number of people playing Grand Theft Auto V online, so we figured we’d take a quick look at performance with everything cranked up.

This game title uses the Source game engine and looks pretty decent. We tested CS:GO with the high graphics quality preset with 8x MSAA and 16x AF. Once we had the graphics and display settings figured out we used FRAPS to manually benchmark a section of the game for a couple minutes. We tested at two resolutions during the same online game, so you will have an idea of the general performance at that resolution. The two runs were done at different places in de_dust2, so the performance lines shouldn’t line up at all.

Benchmark Results: CS:GO is a very easy on modern graphics cards, so the AMD Radeon RX 480 4GB does great at both 1920 x 1440 and 2560 x 1400 screen resolutions. The system averaged around 215 FPS at 1080P and around 265 FPS at 1440P. You can easily play CS:GO at 4K resolutions with the image quality maxed out!

Benchmark Results: When it comes to CPU utilization we found that we were using about 70% of the processor while playing CS:GO. The chart is done in slow mode, so this is a look at four minutes of CPU performance.

    What is the weight of the pc because I want to know the Shiping cost in my country

  • lonemuffin

    i have a few questions
    1. On amazon it says that it has a i5-7400, so will they change the processor due to availability reasons or will that always stay the same no matter what
    2. Is it possible to upgrade to a nividia 1070

  • Mark

    This was my first PC but. I always went with the laptops but I wanted something that I could upgrade down the line. I didn’t do enough research into this computer and if Cyberpowerpc can’t fix it and send it back I will be disappointed. The good news is that I fell in love with it immediately. Of course, ignorance is bliss. I didn’t know about the power supply. I did the power supply test after it crashed and wouldn’t turn on. The power supply is still working but the tech support says that the motherboard itself is fried. Was this caused by the power supply? Will a Corsair 750 be an improvement? One month without a PC….. I’m going crazy and I just want to make sure that it works and stays working when I get it back. Help?!?

  • Spacecreepkitan

    yeah, that power supply WILL fail, if you buy this system do yourself a favor and fit it with a namebrand psu; you can use the one the system ships with as a nifty doorstop or paperweight, the possibilities are practically endless… unless you count the possibility of long-term use as a power supply… the possibilities end there

      The High Power HPG-600BR-F12/14S has been around since 2010 and I don’t see too much about it online. Does it have a bad track record or short life span? Let me know if I missed something! All power supplies will fail, but I don’t know much about High Power models.

      • Spacecreepkitan

        I can only speak from personal experience ( and everyones personal experience will vary ) but I’ve had them in a couple cheap setups and they failed relatively quickly, no damage to any other components or anything, but i definitely don’t trust them, the systems here are still a good value even after buying a more reliable power supply.

        • Nathan Kirsch

          I totally understand and I’d take a good EVGA or Corsair PSU over a High Power model on any given day based on the same personal experiences. Having used this system and pounded on it for a week it seems like this PSU is okay and it should be okay.

        • JustaGuyFromCincy

          Can you recommend a better power supply that will work in this PC and will be compatible with higher end video cards? Thanks.
