The Crysis score were made with XFX HD 7850 Black Edition external graphics card making a marginal difference across all platforms. In this particular game at High stings 1920x1080 4X. The Core i7 4470K and Core i7 3770K scores are almost identical, while the A10 5800K scores just a frame less.

We ran Crysis 2 at high 1680x1050 1X AA and 1X AF getting only 8.2 FPS with Intel Core i7 4470K + HD 4600 GT2 while AMD Richland A10 5800K with integrated HD 7660D scores 11.3, much better but still way below playable frame rates.

At first sight you get some 10+ per cent performance in CPU intensive tests, but we will bring more detailed review soon in order to make a better conclusion. Haswell will definitely do well in the mobile market while the desktop upgrade market got something nice and faster to be happy about. However, we expect the big differences to be in mobile, i.e. battery life.

Stay tuned for more.
