What is this blog about?

One day, a computer enthusiast named Fr4nc couldn’t find conclusive results of the extremly popular AMD vs. Intel battle, so he decided to commit to a project and put his time and money into a research, which will finally reveal the true objective preformance of both brands.

For comparison, he will be using AMD FX-8120 and Intel i5 3570k. The tests will be preformed in many applications/games under frequencies of 3.4GHz, 4.0GHz and 4.5GHz.

Tests:

  • AIDA 64 extreme 2.50
  • Cinebench 11.5
  • Fritz chess benchmark
  • Preformance test 7 x64
  • PC Mark 7 v1.04
  • SPEC Viewperf v11.0
  • Sunspider
  • WinRar 4.2 (6,1GB – rar)
  • WinRar 4.2 Benchmark (3min)
  • x264 benchmark v 5.0
  • y-cruncher Version 0.5.5 Build 9180 (fix 2)
  • ZIP 7 (6,1GB – LZMA2)

Games:

  • Alien vs Predator Benchmark
  • Call of Pripyat Benchmark
  • Dirt 3 Benchmark
  • Far Cry 2 Benchmark
  • Final Fantasy XIV Benchmark
  • Hard Reset Demo
  • Lost Planet 2 Benchmark
  • Resident Evil 5 Benchmark (Test1 in Test 2)
  • Steeet Fighter IV Benchmark
  • Tom Clancy’s H.A.W.X Benchmark
  • Tom Clancy’s H.A.W.X 2 Benchmark

Benchmarks:

  • 3DMARK 06
  • 3DMARK 11
  • 3DMARK Vantage
  • UNiGiNE Heaven v3.0

Other:

  • Power consumption in AIDA 64 extreme 2.5 (Stress CPU, FPU and cache – ON)
  • Power consumption in AIDA 64 extreme 2.5 (Stress CPU, FPU, cache, memory and GPU – ON)
  • Power consumption in Resident Evil 5 – All Maxed out (W)
  • Power consumption in idle (W)

Fr4nc is very surprised of Intel’s very low power consumption in idle and Resident Evil 5.

He can hardly wait for the AMD rig to arrive (which should be approximately on Saturday, 23.6.2012).
