3DMark is a program with a set of several 3D benchmarks. Fire Strike runs a “heavy” DirectX 11 simulation. Sky Diver also measures DirectX 11 performance, and is aimed on average computers. The Cloud Gate benchmark measures DirectX 10 performance, and the Ice Storm Extreme measures DirectX 9 performance and is targeted to entry-level computers, so we don’t ran it.
Keep in mind that we used a GeForce GTX 950 VGA in this test on all CPUs.
On Fire Strike, all the CPUs were on a technical tie.
On the Sky Diver benchmark, the Athlon X4 860K performed similarly to the other CPUs.
On the Cloud Gate benchmark, the Athlon X4 860K was 10% faster than the Pentium G4500, performing similarly to the Athlon X4 880K and the FX-4300.
