Intel Core i7-3960X Sandy Bridge-E Processor ReviewMon, Nov 14, 2011 - 2:00 AM
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: We heard that the Intel Core i7-3960X wasn’t going to make a huge difference in gaming benchmarks, so we were shocked to see the CPU at the top of the chart for the Resident Evil 5 DirectX 10 benchmark! This game is only threaded for what looks like six cores and that is the reason that all the 6-8 core processors were at the top of the chart. The Intel Core i7-3960X was just ahead of the Intel Core i7-990X.
