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 Intel Core i3-2120 might have a higher CPU core clock speed and more available threads for processing, but none of that matters when you have a GPU bottleneck. The Intel Pentium G620, Pentium G850 and Core i3-2120 all have roughly the same gaming performance thanks to the fact that they share identical GPU clock speeds and Intel HD 2000 graphics!
