Modern Warfare 2
With Modern Warfare 2, we used FRAPS to record frame rates over the course of a 60-second gameplay session. We conducted this gameplay session five times on each CPU and have reported the median score from each processor. We've also graphed the frame rates from a single, representative session for each. We tested this game at a relatively low 1024x768 resolution, with no AA, but otherwise using the highest in-game visual quality settings.
AMD's new entrants don't do any better in Modern Warfare 2, although here, Intel's success matters little. Even sub-$100 dual-core processors can crank out a minimum frame rate of about 60 per second, which matches the maximum most LCD monitors can deliver. Processor performance should be the least of your worries in cross-platform titles like these.
