CPU Scaling - Core i7 9xx

This test is meant to show how much CPU speed can affect performance on Bulletstorm. As you can see Core i7 owners will not need to overclock to get the most out of their high-end graphics card, with the average frame rate locked at around 103fps at 1920x1200 regardless of frequency.

Because we have tested with the GeForce GTX 580, which essentially eliminates any GPU bottleneck, this means slower graphics cards are unlikely to run into issues even when paired with slower processors (within reason).
