Intel Core i7-3770K 3.5GHz Ivy Bridge Processor ReviewMon, Apr 23, 2012 - 12:00 PM
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 six threads as you can see from the task manager shot above that was taken on a test system that was running the Intel Core i7-3960X processor.
Benchmark Results: The higher turbo clock speeds and IPC improvements in Ivy Bridge appear to help a bit as the Intel Core i7-3770K performed noticeably better than the Core i7-2700K.
Integrated Graphics Testing
Benchmark Results: The Intel Core i7-3770K scored 44.1 FPS at 1280×1024, which was roughly 45% faster than what the Intel Core i7-2700K could do on the same benchmark.
