Ashes of the Singularity




In Resident Evil, Intel still has the lead, and even the 8400 shines pretty well. However, we see definite improvements on the AMD side of things. In fact, in most games, we see that while Coffee Lake takes the cake overall, the margin by which Intel CPUs have total domination is reduced by Zen+.



AMD's 2nd Generation of Ryzen CPUs definitely bridges the gap between Intel and AMD when it comes to gaming. At higher resolutions, that difference is reduced, and it doesn't matter too much which CPU you have, and in some games, the i5-8400 will get beaten out by Ryzen 2nd Generation, especially at higher resolutions.
