I benchmarked 3 less common Intel SKUS using the Bioshock Infinite utility.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I wanted to benchmark and compare some less common Intel 1155 SKUs that represent a "wider" spread on the spectrum. The CPUs I tested were the i3-3220, the i5-2500, and the i5-2400S. All I really had to go on was the Bioshock Infinite benchmark utility, so that is what I used.

For each test, I used the same Gigabyte GA-Z68-D3-B3 motherboard and EVGA GTX 660 Sig 2 GPU. Turns out, the average FPS was exactly the same for all 3:

<<CPU: average FPS, minimum FPS, and highest FPS>>

i3-3220: 52.68, 15.46, 167.05

i5-2500: 52.93, 18.47, 84.36

i5-2400S: 52.68, 14.20, 86.68

Thoughts: Either Bioshock Infinite is GPU dependent, or it's not optimized for four cores. What do you guys think?

According to the utility, the max FPS of the i3 at all 5/151 measurement points was 167.05, 130.51, 100.5, 93.07, and 90.76. Anybody know why the framerate spikes up like that?

For the purpose of benchmarking the CPU, you must run the utility at the lowest resolution possible. What resolution did you run it on ??

I ran the utility at 1920x1080 Ultra w/Diffusion of Field. Was that not the right thing to do? ohno-smiley.gif
