It has been a while since one of our articles featured an AMD Processor. Ever since intel's core 2 line up of processors emerged, the gaming and benchmarking market has been heavily dominated by intel. However, over the past few years we have seen AMD release some high quality processors that offer great value for the end user. The latest among these processors is the Phenom II X6 1100T and this article will analyze its performance in various gaming titles.
If you look at the different reviews online it is not hard to assess that AMD might not be the best choice if you are aiming for the best graphics rendering performance. One can also find reports of multi-GPU setups being severely handicapped when coupled with a Phenom II processor as opposed to an I7. Of course, some of these tests are run at resolutions and image quality settings that only worsen the situation. Unlike such scenarios, this article will try to make full use of a powerful TRI SLI setup at resolution and image quality settings where high end GPU offerings are supposed to run ! Hopefully this will give us a more practical picture of the extent of the disadvantage that an AMD Processors puts you at, when you are running a high end gaming set up.
