Batman: Arkham City
In spite of the spiky nature of the frame time plots for Arkham City, the FPS averages and 99th percentile graphs again roughly track together. One exception is the Pentium G2120. Its FPS average tops all but one AMD processor, but the Pentium drops down the ranks in the more latency-sensitive measurement. Nevertheless, the general story told here isn't terribly different from what we saw in Skyrim.
One ray of light for AMD is the relative performance of the Trinity chips versus the A8-3850. The A10 spends less than half the time on long-latency frames that the A8-3850 does. Trouble is, the Core i3-3225 spends less than a quarter of the time the A10 does beyond our threshold.
