Out of the Box iGPU Performance: GPGPU Memory, UNIGINE, ResidentEvil, LostPlanet, 3DMark


AIDA64 Engineer Edition: GPGPU Memory Bandwidth Test




3DMark Fire Strike





3DMark CloudGate








Resident Evil 6 Benchmark




Lost Planet 2 Benchmark




3DMark's FireStrike test is heavily GPU dependent while CloudGate is CPU dependent, and this comes through in the benchmarks. The 7870K clearly has better integrated graphics than both the other contenders, and it shows in the benchmarks, but when the CPU is very important to the score, the 4770K can take the lead. In games such as Resident Evil where the GPU does most of the rendering the 7870K beats the 4770K, and when the CPU is used a lot like in Lost Planet, then the 4770K takes it, but the Pentium is no match for the 7870K.
