We have largely missed one important consequence of our insights, though. Latency-focused game testing doesn't just apply to graphics cards; it's just as helpful for considering CPU performance. We made a quick down payment on exploring this matter in our Ivy Bridge review, but we haven't done enough to pursue it. Happily, that oversight ends today. Over the summer, we've tested 18 different PC processors from multiple generations in a range of games, and we can now share the results with you.
I love Tech Report's reviews. I guess frame-time latencies also depends on which processor you use, and AMD isn't faring so well in that area.
