Resident Evil 2

1440p CPU Bottleneck Results

2160p (4K) CPU Bottleneck Results

RE2 uses the RE Engine and it runs great. Earlier we saw this engine push the 12 Thread X5660 near it max performance in Devil May Cry 5. Resident Evil 2 uses an older version of the RE Engine, but it still runs great on the X58 platform. 1440p pushes the X5660 to 80% on average and 4K lowers the average to only 67%. However, there is still a slight CPU bottleneck at 4K so what you see is what you get in this game at 4K. With the lower average at 4K overclocking the GPU won’t necessarily bring more frames due to the X5660 being pushed hard with the RE Engine.
