Call of Duty 4
Call of Duty 4 is a DirectX 9 game implementing high-dynamic range (HDR) and its own physics engine. We ran this game at 1440×900 with all image quality settings at their minimum values (no anti-aliasing and no anisotropic filtering). We used the game internal benchmarking feature, running a demo provided by NVIDIA called wetwork. We are putting the demo for downloading here if you want to run your own benchmarking. The game was updated to version 1.7. We ran this test five times, discarding the lowest and the highest scores. The results below are an arithmetic average of the three remaining values, given in frames per second (FPS).
We ran this game twice with each CPU. First, we used the CPU integrated graphics. Then we added a Radeon HD 6570 video card, which is an entry-level DirectX 11 video card. The CPUs from AMD included in this review allow you to combine the integrated graphics chip inside the CPU with the Radeon HD 6570 video card in CrossFireX mode in order to increase the performance.
The integrated graphics processor of the A8-3870K was 46% faster than the one from the Core i3-2100 and 44% faster than the one from the Core i3-2105, and achieved the same performance as the A8-3850’s.
When we added a Radeon HD 6570, the video performance of the A8-3870K increased 44 percent. With this video card installed, this CPU was 28% faster than the Core i3-2105 and 32% faster than the Core i3-2100, also with the Radeon HD 6570 installed.
