Battlefield 4 Budget Build Performance
Published: 12th February 2014 | Source: PCSpecialist | Price: £549 |
As this is a gaming system we skipped the majority of CPU intensive tests as they are rather meaningless in this case. Benchmarks such as AIDA64, SiSoft Sandra, wPrime, and the numerous rendering and transcoding benchmarks we normally run aren't really applicable to a system like this since the chances are Financial Analysis benchmarks from Sandra, and mathematical calculations in wPrime won't be the sort of thing you'd be using a budget gaming PC for. However, we did still run a few such as PCMark and Cinebench in order to get an idea of the CPU's performance.
It's worth noting that we didn't optimise the system in any way. Of course, with a system like this you would be able to increase the GPU clocks in order to attain a little more performance. However, since some people may be uncomfortable overclocking the system themselves, we didn't think it would be right to include overclocked results in our testing.
Our CPU-z and GPU-z screenshots below show the clock speeds that the system runs at.
