WoW - How much cpu power do you need? (Answer: More than Sandy Bridge) - Page 4

post #31 of 253
sorry was wrong that screen is with shaders at ultra. thanks problame was about to post that its still the same no gpu usage on screen lol . just logged back on and changed shaders to good and i gained 20fps . but you should be getting more fps than me . if anything to me as long as your getting at least 40fps its all good

I don't play WoW but I have heard multiple people say that an SSD helps a lot in heavily populated areas. Because if Sandy Bridge isn't enough than nothing is.

I went through my email and found one of those 7 day invites. Jumped on my very first character, enabled DX11, turned all settings to Ultra, disabled V sync and I'm still getting ~80fps. even with a slow AMD cpu . So yeah, I'm not sure whats going on in your particular situation.

I max wow in heavily populated areas with 60+ fps (maybe not dalaran in wotl but thats no longer populated)

And I don't have an 'ultra' high power set up

And your first screenshot isn't showing a cpu bottleneck...

I smell a fail thread. I'll be honest though, I didn't bother reading most of your post because you are talking about performance in a game whilst bashing it as the same time

Pics? Or at least a picture of the screen, I want to see so much WoW on one picture my head explodes.

Well since I can duplicate the low usage, I'm going to assume its a cpu bottleneck until proven otherwise.

I also really don't care what you get on x server at y time, it has no bearing on what I've seen since the cpu intensive tasks are based solely on the number of people around we could have the exact same hardware and get 100 different results on different servers.

If you want to "prove" anything, log in with me, and we'll get it done proper.

However since this has turned personal for several people, I'll provide some benchmarks from my hardware itself - if you'd like to see any other tests done please request it and I will be more than happy to provide it for you.

MaxxMem at 4.8GHz


HD Tune - Please keep in mind this drive is OS/Storage so some of the deep dips could probably be equated to the OS needing disk time.


Afterburner + Task Manager - WoW was forced onto core 3 and 4 to remove windows thread sharing between all 4 cores.

This was done on a mid pop server at 3am, there weren't a lot of people around so the load on the chip wasn't anywhere near as high as it was in my OP.


Please point out the defective hardware that performs subpar so I can address any issues that may be present, thanks.

Edit: Removing the major cpu load results in 300 fps at stock, and 400 overclocked.

I see Recount on, but not any other telltale signs of other addons. I know that addons can drastically change your fps especially if they're outdated. I currently play wow and can't recall the last time I dipped below 60fps. (I play on a far higher pop server than Kel'thuzad too.) SSD only seems to really matter for me when loading or in a really really high congestion area such as Tol Barad. By chance, are you running in windowed mode? I recall WoW not using SLI unless you're fullscreen/non-windowed.

I'd love WoW to be bottlenecked by my CPU as it would give me another reason to tell the missus I NEED to upgrade once BD/SB-E/IB are released. I have a serious case of upgrade-itis.

I don't think anyone is making this personal, and there is certainly nothing wrong with your hardware. I'm quite jealous of your memory bandwidth, but I've been cut off from buying more RAM until I upgrade my motherboard/CPU.

Got me interested. Now, I'm not saying this is the issue you have but what I remember is my old rig's harddisk crunchin for some time when entering a crowded city/area so I wanna do some testing.

What I want to do is make a comparison of HDD vs SSD to see the difference in usage, loading time and FPS when in WoW (Crowded and normal circumstances).

Is there any good app to see the HDD loading/accesing real time?
