Battlefield: Bad Company 2
After a promising start in our synthetic memory tests, we finally get our first look at the FX-8150's real-world performance—and it's a bit underwhelming. The FX-8150 is no faster than the Phenom II X4 980, and it's slower than quite a few Intel processors, even somewhat older models.
Of course, a result like this one should come with a reminder: a frame rate of 75 FPS, with a low of 58 FPS, means the FX-8150 is easily competent to run this game smoothly—at least, as far as we can tell when measuring in frames per second. We have some promising new testing methods we may bring to bear on CPU performance soon, so stay tuned.
