In one of the key releases from the last year, Battlefield 3, which uses the same game engine as the upcoming Medal of Honor game we see that the three CPUs are offering us very similar performance. There is a minor increase moving from the FX-8150 to 8350 which just edges out the comparable Intel chip but for this game it is important to have a decent GPU to maximise the detail level, backed by a CPU of this level.

Here is an example of the image quality at our tested settings.

There was of course no new CPU at that time with the existing socket 1150 processors working without issue in the new boards. Since then though Intel launched (along with some lower spec models) the Core i7-4790K, a model which sits at the top of their mainstream platform. Today we see how it compares to various other models when installed on Gigabytes Z97X Gaming 5 and paired with PowerColors new dual core 290X Devil 13.
