Intel’s Core i5-3570K internal graphics no match for the new Socket FM2 processors
Intel users who buys the Core i5 series usually go for the faster encoding speed and support of new technologies on new boards e.g based on Intel Z77 chipset.
In fact, something that most intend to forget is the raw power of the processors. In fact, when the Socket FM1 processors were introduced, it was not well received.

Today, we took a look at our old records and did a comparison and found that our Socket FM1 A8-3850 actually outperform our Core i5-3570K processor in terms of graphics capabilities. This is especially in games frame rates and openGL tests. Although it is fast, graphics encoding is behind Intel’s.
So, will the Socket FM2 processors going to change that or will there be any breakthrough ? Discuss.
