i5 2500K@4GHz VS Q9650@4GHz Oblivion results - Page 3

post #21 of 24

Same Savegames, also that Unique Districts mod activated. Just like in my first post. Only this time I use a GTX 260 Core 216@702/1404/2430 (And not GTX 570@850/2000), Q9650@4GHz and 1920x1080 Full screen instead of 1280x720 Windowed mode.

Results are almost the same. Only goes to show that this old game have no problems running on a GTX 260, which is much more modern than this game. This also shows that it's bad coding and engine are actually causing a CPU bottleneck.


Q9650@4GHz, GTX 260@702/1404/2430, 1920x1080 full screen



Q9650@4GHz, GTX 260@702/1404/2430, 1920x1080 full screen

Now, If I take this GTX 260 and throw it in my i5 2500K system and ran the same settings, I'm pretty sure I would get the same results I did in my first post with the Sandy and the GTX 570 at 1280x720 Windowed mode. I won't bother though, because the results are already obvious from my first post.

This may explain why some people 'felt' and meassured they actually got new life in their somewhat old graphics cards when they upgraded to Sandybridge. Some old games like Oblivion never get enough CPU power because of it's bad game engine...

The funny thing here is also that, if someone were to upgrade from a GTX 260 to a GTX 570, hoping to get higher FPS in Oblivion, their in for a surprise

Once, again, this is one of the few games showing things like this, because of it's terrible coding.

Also, Downclocking the Q9650 to stock (3GHz) made not Difference! Same FPS in both shots!

I personally wouldn't have decided to upgrade to SB from C2Q if not for posts such as this one.

Thank you, Turrican.
This.

For me, it was trying to decide if throwing a 775 quad in for an upgrade would be worth it. Since prices of 775 quads have not dropped at all, the price/performance is not there to justify that pricey upgrade. Although it may seem easier to just "drop" a quad in on an aging platform, seeing actual results helped me realize that the price for the old quad doesn't justify the performance "like I thought it would."

Some of us work on a budget, and numbers matter.
