BF3 1090t vs I5 for fps at 1050p gaming

post #1 of 36
Thread Starter 
Hey, let me start off by saying all I want to do is be able to run BF3 on high atleast with smooth framerates. I don't really want to upgrade anything right now, I'm waiting for all the new ivy/pcie/gtx 600 series but I have to as BF series is my favorite so I'm trying to find the cheapest route to play it.

I added in some GFX card questions and other stuff too.


Main concern/issue:

I'm worried my CPU is limiting my FPS, since similar issues are happening to people with core2duos I think I need to upgrade my CPU.(frame rate seems to stay the same on low/high for certain points in game. Also on all low with a 560 TI I still dropped down to 30fps, and on low settings GPU was a low % while cpu was 90-100%, though when I turned to high settings I had 99% gpu, 90-100% cpu, and every now and then I got really bad fps lagging and I think it was when my CPU hit 100%)

I was going to get a 960T or 1090t and overclock to 4GHZ+ but
I seen benchmarks for i5/phenoms in gaming FPS and they were all 1024x768 or so and i5 was WAY ahead of it, but when you got to 1920x1080 it seems somewhat even but i5 was ahead by like 9fps or so.
I haven't found any for 1680x1050 though and I'm hoping I won't be losing out like 20+ fps.


I'm using 1680x1050
I overclocked my 720BE by .2 more ghz and raised the NB to 2400 and saw alot of improvement, specifically I didn't get the drop to 2fps stutter as often as I did before, and I was able to get this
with a GTX 560 TI fps of around 25-35 on high (Note: I just sent the GTX 560 back cause I was getting 100c+ at 60% fan speed lol)
I'm thinking of now getting two GTX 460's and SLIing them as I heard they're as good as a 580, and if I get 25-30 now with a 560 TI, I'm guessing it should be around 45-50. My board has a PCIE 16x, and one 8x, would that affect the performace at all for SLI? I also have to use an SLI patch to get it work or something, as my board is only crsfire.
and when I had BF3 at high 1680x1050, It used around 1000MB of ram, the cards have 1GB each will that be a problem?

Alternatively to two 460s I could go one GTX 570, but that won't be much better then the previous card.

And I also know the game isn't full released, drivers may be optimized more etc but I remember BFBC2 released with the same performance issues from beta, and I also had trouble with my 3core at the time lol.





Sorry for the long post, should of made two topics for the GTX cards

I can tell you from personal experience my CPU was being stressed pretty hard on Caspian Border with 460s in SLi. I personally wouldn't even consider anything less than a SB i5 for that game if you're considering SLi. Phenom II is garbage for SLi and bottlenecks any high end GPU setup. Not as apparently in metro but it shows in CB and other games.

With 1GB VRAM you will have to turn a few things down but it still looks good without AA, shadows on high instead of ultra and SSAO instead of HBAO. Of course you might want to change other settings but it still looks good. Why are you getting rid of the 560 Ti you already have, you can SLi that.

I'll say this before and I'll say it again, after you cross the GPU bottleneck, @ 1080p, it won't matter whether you're running a 980x or a 1090t.

Go where the money lets you. My 1090T is handling my HD6870 Crossfire perfectly in BF3, the CPU hangs around 50%/core and the GPU clocks keep smashing the wall @ 99%.

Take it as you will. If you have the money, then Intel is the "better" option.

CPU usage % isn't directly indicative if you have a bottleneck. If any one of the cores is at 100% then it's a CPU bottleneck.

When this happens the game will choke up.

In big resolutions like 1680x1050 / 1920x1080 /1920x1200 /2560x1600 (for single monitors) all cpu's performs same (+/-2fps). Better to get 960T (costs 115$, he is black edition "can overclock well" , can be unlocked to x6 etc etc). For now the best choice for you is getting that Phenom II x4 960T BE.

Until you play SCII and notice your AMD is terrible.

Uhhh, Starcraft

I'm on a budget ATM so I wouldn't of been able to SLI a pair of 560 ti.

For the 460 sli, does the RAM combine? As I said I got 1000MB usage on it when I played caspian border so I'm afraid I may still need more for bigger maps (wake island) and I can't play without AA lol I may have to just get a 570GTX and hope the new CPU will up my FPS a bit.

Can anyone link me to some gaming benchmarks between a 1090t and an I5 at 1680x1050?

Not like I could afford one atm, I'm barely making it out getting around 500$ to spend on a CPU & GFX card for this game by octobor 25th, then it's ramen everynight for the next month lol
