Resident Evil 5
We've been using the Resident Evil 5 fixed benchmark for a while now and so it only made sense to include it in these testings. We used Medium settings at 1080p and took the results for both 0xAA and 8xAA.
Resident Evil 5 is an older game now and so we don't expect massive performance gains between Kaveri and Richland, and we do see roughly the same results. The 6800K does actually edge ahead slightly, but as this is an older game that we don't expect the user to be playing anyway, we can't mark the APUs down too harshly for this.
Resident Evil 6
Resident Evil 6's benchmark utility is DX9 only, which is strange when its predecessor has DX10 support. We ran the benchmark with the Medium preset over 1080p and 720p.
We see similar results in Resident Evil 6 as we saw in 5 - no real performance differences between any of the APUs. The older games such as these don't have updates to optimise them for use with latest generation graphics chips, so this is perhaps why we see very similar results across the board.
