Driving and Racing Game Benchmarks

In a single monitor full HD scenario, Dirt 2 and 3 run well on moderate systems such as Core2 DUO fitted with an appropriate medium performance gaming graphics card.  In benchmark mode, the much more expensive Intel platform gives a worse performance per dollar rating than both AMD systems.

For Trackmania Nations, we have an interesting scenario.  Considering average frames per second both AMD systems do not hit the magic desired number of 60 FPS and that is with an overclock version of the HD7950 graphics card.  The Intel i7/7970 combo almost achieves double the performance.

Do the AMD platforms offer enough performance for Trackmania?  At 5 and 10fps loss, yes they do especially for the low price of the CPU/Motherboard platforms.
