FarCry5 Benchmark

We will be using the built-in benchmark of Far Cry 5 to test performance on these desktop platforms to see which one games better.

Far Cry 5 Settings

We tested with the ‘Normal’ graphics quality preset with V-Sync disabled on both platforms.

Benchmark Results: Far Cry 5 gaming performance isn’t the best on high-core count processors as not all the cores are being used and the clock speed is lower than other mainstream processors. It should come as a surprise that the Intel Core i9-9900K and Core i7-8700K are at the top of the performance chart here with a massive lead. The Intel Core i9-9980XE performs a couple FPS faster on average than 7980XE and the overall gaming experience feels the same between the 7980XE and the 9980XE.
