Benchmarks: IGP - Part Two

Moving over to real-world gaming at 1,280x720 and 1,920x1,080, AMD's APUs - new and old - run rings around Intel in BioShock Infinite.

You'll know exactly why the A10-6800K is that bit quicker than A10-5800K. What's of greater importance for the casual gamer is that AMD's APU provides reasonably smooth gameplay at a full-HD resolution when run with the game's medium-quality settings. The price-comparable Intel chip, on the other hand, struggles to provide the same smooth experience at 1,280x720.

Providing a clean sweep for IGP-based gaming, A10-6800K maintains a small, largely insignificant, lead over A10-5800K. Intel's last-gen IGP is left trailing in its wake.
