x4 955

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
I'm going to buy a Pll x4 955 3.2Ghz and replace my 550BE. I've overclocked my 550 to 3.8Ghz. In F1 2010 with my 5850 on high settings, I get 42 fps at 3.1Ghz, and 48 fps at overclocked 3.8Ghz which shows me how much the game is cpu dependent. I'm assuming and hoping I'd get considerably more with a quad core 955, even at stock 3.2Ghz? How much more fps approximately am I possibly going to get, at stock, and then overclocked?

That really depends and I don't think anyone can give you a general idea of the FPS increase you'll acquire_ Most likely you'll have to test that on your own.

Now I know that I use to play World of Warcraft(til Cataclysm killed it) I would get 34-45FPS with my Phenom 9100e at 1.8ghz on a HD5770 VGA card_ Switching over to a Phenom II 955x4 I was getting constant 60FPS =]

So from my experience the difference was big =]

So in all likelyhood, there's a good chance I am probably looking at anything between 15 to 25fps extra?

The Phenom II 550BE is a great processor also, it is only a dual core compare to a Phenom II 955x4 which is a quad core.

Now the thing is both processors has 6mb L3 cache_ So in my eyes, the 550BE is basically a dual core version of the 955x4_ Most games don't fully utilize 4 CPU cores, so I sorta doubt you'll see much if at all any performance gains_

It really depends. U know how many cores the game are able to use?
It seems like U know how to OC so if U OC the 955 to U will probably see a nice gain if the gpu isnt bottlenecking.

EDIT: Have U checked if the 555 unlocks?

My 550 won't unlock, can't get it to boot.

Hmm, I certainly hope the 955 gives me considerably more fps. According to reviews on people who bought it at overclockers.co.uk, they say it's amazing and gave them loads more fps.

I don't think you'll see a big boost if you've already had your dualcore OC'd, some games might help but overall I think you'd end with a similar result.

Unless you have your machine seriously performance tuned, you will most definitly see a performance increase from having the extra 2 cores for background services and machine running whilst playing the game, so the game your playing can fully utilize the full 2 cores (if the game is 2 cores+), although the actual amount completely varies

If it wont unlock I would say go for the 955. They are great. Mine does 4.1 with 1.51v.
