3DMark is a program with a set of several 3D benchmarks. Fire Strike runs a “heavy” DirectX 11 simulation. Sky Diver also measures DirectX 11 performance, and is aimed on average computers. The Cloud Gate benchmark measures DirectX 10 performance, and the Ice Storm Extreme measures DirectX 9 performance and is targeted to entry-level computers, so we don’t ran it.
Keep in mind that we used a GeForce GTX 950 VGA in this test on all CPUs.
On Fire Strike, the Athlon X4 845 performed similarly to the FX-4300 and the A10-7870K, and was 10% slower than the Core i3-6100.
On the Sky Diver benchmark, the Athlon X4 845 had the same performance of the FX-4300, was 4% slower than the A10-7870K, and was 15% slower than the Core i3-6100.
On the Cloud Gate benchmark, the Athlon X4 845 was 7% faster than the FX-4300, performed similarly to the A10-7870K, and was 23% slower than the Core i3-6100.
