3D Mark Vantage
There is a finite amount of CPU performance that you need to get a good gaming rig though, and so it proves with the Core i5-2405S. Despite it's fairly terrible performance in the synthetics, it's a decent underpinning in 3D Mark Vantage. When combined with the latest ForceWare drivers and our GTX570 it is clearly capable of good things.
3D Mark 11
The more recent 3D Mark 11 does require a more meaty CPU and the i5-2405S, although not bad, starts to show some of its limitations. When the Image Quality is ramped up to Extreme and the GPU becomes more of a factor the CPU clearly becomes less of an issue.
