Lost Planet 2

Version and / or Patch Used: Standalone Benchmark

Lost Planet 2 is again one of our older benchmarks. Looking above, though, you can see we've got a difference of just 4 FPS between the two setups. When you're talking about FPS that are nearly hitting 300, a 4 FPS variation is nothing that's going to make a difference.

Just Cause 2

Version and / or Patch Used: Latest Steam Update

Just Cause 2 shows the same kind of results as we saw above, except in this case the X79 setup gets those extra couple of FPS. This just goes to show us that here we're really dealing with nothing more than a bit of fluctuation.
