Intel Core i5-760 Review

Crysis: Warhead (GPU/Motherboard/CPU)

Crysis: Warhead is still one of the most demanding games available and brings even a modern day gaming system to its knees at high resolution.

Testing was performed at 1680×1050 with Enthusiast in game settings.

With Crysis Warhead being such a demanding game it serves as a great basis for testing multiple components. In our first test we can see that when gaming the two Intel CPUs offer better performance than our Phenom X6 with the 760 just outperforming the older 750.

Moving to CrossFire comparisons between the ECS and Gigabyte boards there is a gap in performance which favours the P55H-AK.

When we move to SLI using 3 cards the gap in features becomes all the more evident. The ECS board is able to operate in 3-Way SLI using a 16x/8x/8x configuration whereas the P55A is limited to two cards running at lower PCIe speeds. This gives ECS a huge advantage but even when we run both in 2-Way the P55H-AK performs best thanks to its 16x/8x configuration.
