Multi-Threaded Benchmarks: FEAR

FEAR - Multi-Threaded Test

Source: Sierra

FEAR is Sierra's latest first person shooter which relies heavily on DirectX 9 features. With its "Soft Shadows" feature enabled, even the fastest videocards run at a crawl, FEAR is definitely the new benchmark for future FPS games to follow. Prime95 was running in the background to simulate load on a one core.

So what does all this mean, is the E6600 the best dual core processor Intel has in its stables?
