Discrete GPU Benchmarks
In 3DMark, the AMD X4-845 couldn’t compete with either the A10-7850K or the G3220. While the gap is far from ideal, consumers opting for a budget processor probably aren’t overly concerned with synthetic scores. Also, overclocking the CPU appears to resolve this drop off in performance and it’s extremely beneficial.
Ashes of the Singularity
Despite the mediocre stock 3DMark score, the processor fares much better when tackling real-world gaming scenarios. During the strenuous Ashes of the Singularity benchmark, the AMD X4-845 exhibited a good lead compared to the competition and overclocking really contributes to outputting great frame-rates.
Rise of the Tomb Raider
There’s very little to choose between various processors in this price range as they output frame rates within a margin of error. Once again, overclocking does have a significant impact and helps to maintain a more fluid gaming experience.
