A10-7860K vs i3-6100 Frame Time Analysis - Batman: Arkham Origins

Arkham Origins, released in 2013, is the prequel for the two critically acclaimed games of the Batman Arkham franchise - Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City. The story centers around the young Batman, as our hero fights his way through Gotham City’s most dangerous criminals.

The built-in benchmark runs fine on both CPUs with integrated graphics, although the APU capture has some occasional hitching, and the i3 produces quite intense zigzag frame times. I never really went after the zigzags on the Intel platform - my gut feeling is that the driver somehow tries to time the frames to minimize tearing - quite unusual thing, but it works; despite the severe zigzags, the capture is pretty smooth. Overall, the A10-7860K has a huge lead, you can go for better visuals and higher resolution on the APU.
