Here's another case of clear separation between the six-core FX-6350 and the quad-core FX-4350, Trinity, and Richland chips. The Core i3-3225 again has a slight advantage over the A10 APUs, too. All of these CPUs run this game quite competently, but the FX-6350 and the higher-end Intel CPUs sling out frames every 16.7 ms or less (that is, over 60 FPS) virtually no matter what.

One last gaming test shows us a familiar pattern, with the i3-3225 just ahead of the A10 APUs.
