Here's another game with a reputation for making life hard on CPUs. We tested by taking a quick stroll around the block and then blowing up an electrical junction box with our phone. Kind of like real life around here.

 


 

Well, this game is strenuous—but only for the A10-7800 among the CPUs we tested. Even the Core i3-4360 aces this test, rendering 99% of the frames in 19 ms or less. Notably, the Core i7-5960X takes the slightest of leads over the 4790K and 4960X.

 


Yeah, perhaps we need to find a different area to test, but this game doesn't look to be as tough on the CPU as we expected. Even the A10-7800 stays below our 50-ms "badness" threshold throughout the test session.
