GPU Limited Gaming Performance
The games below are tested using maximum in game quality settings at high resolutions. Here they are primarily GPU bound (BF3 is single-player) so a faster CPU generally has little to offer.
Despite being heavily GPU bound the Core i7-5960X was able to offer an extra frame here and there over other high-end CPUs such as the 4960X and 4790K.
