Gladiator i5 4.4GHz Z68 Bundle

3D Mark and Far Cry 2 Gladiator Z68 Core i5 4.4 GHz Bundle

3D Mark Vantage

Nobody would expect integrated graphics to be able to run the very latest titles, and if you do, go stand in the corner, and although with a GTX570 in place the Gladiator Z68 can give the 26000 P-Score we've seen a thousand times, how would it perform if you'd just use it as an HTPC with light gaming?

Despite GPUz reporting DX11 compatibility, 3D Mark 11 swore it didn't have, and Intel report only Direct X 10.1 compatibility, so to Vantage we go. 1840 P-Score. Not by any stretch amazing but, like everything, you tailor your expectations.


Far Cry 2

So with presumptions suitably in check, is this little powerhouse capable of giving you some gaming goodness? Absolutely. Far Cry 2 in the equivalent of 720P and High settings (so identical to how it is on the consoles) gives us a good 30 FPS average which is definitely playable.

Another bargain bundle from Aria and this time with a Z68 motherboard and some Muskin Copper Head. The IGP is better than expected as well 30 fps in Far Cry 2 is pretty good, just don't ask if it can run Crysis Quote
