AMD 8350 & 7970 Gaming Rig Review

Far Cry 3
Moving into the jungle with Jason Brody and the lack of CPU performance is really noticeable. 8 frames behind our first HD7970 test, and a whopping 12 behind the Intel test on the same card and drivers. 30 is right on the borderline of where we'd like to be. Fortunately Far Cry 3 is slower paced so it's tolerable.
The benefit of the latest Catalyst drivers can be felt in Hitman Absolution. Also the power of the full-spectrum AMD setup. Only 3 FPS average below a LGA2011, which is vastly more expensive. Good job, Agent 47.
