Resident Evil 5 is a survival horror video game developed and published by Capcom. The game is the seventh installment in the Resident Evil survival horror series, and was released on September 18. Resident Evil 5 revolves around Chris Redfield and Sheva Alomar as they investigate a terrorist threat in Kijuju, a fictional town in Africa.




With the synthetic tests out the way, we get into some actual games and get an idea of what's on offer. At stock you can see we're close to that 60 FPS number we like to achieve at 1280 x 800. On the other hand, you can see the HD 3000 graphics on the i7 2600k is 19 FPS away from it.


Overclocked you can see that the A8-3850 is able to break that 60 FPS mark at 1280 x 800 and give us a nice boost at 1680 x 1050. Unfortunately we're a bit far away from where we want to be.


You can see if we throw a HD 6670 in our system and don't CrossFire it, that card manages to get just over 60 FPS at 1680 x 1050. When you CrossFire it with the A8-3850 you can see a 50% boost in performance, bringing us a 99 FPS average which is fantastic.
