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 three processors obtained similar performances.
On the Sky Diver benchmark, the Athlon X4 880K performed similarly to the A10-7870K, and it was 9% faster than the Pentium G4400.
On the Cloud Gate benchmark, the Athlon X4 880K was on tie with the A10-7870K, and it was 21% faster than the Pentium G4400.
