Phenom 9350e bottleneck

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
My friend recently bought a gtx 560Ti and only seems to be getting 30% GPU utlization with his phenom 9350e

I realize that this is an energy saving cpu, but would it really bottleneck him that badly?

(he owns this motherboard: http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/AMD_AM2Plus/M2N68AM_PLUS/)

Any suggestions as to why i can do about this?
Even any other cpu's that might work better (i have a spare athlon 64 x2 5000+ lieing around, would it be a better cpu than his one)

Im unsure as to whether i should attempt to overclock his cpu on that board due to its 3+1phase power management, but seeing as it apparently supports 125w cpu's overclocking a 65w cpu should do to much should it?

It's a Phenom I at 2ghz. It would bottleneck any modern GPU.

any suggestions as to any cpus that are supported by his motherboard that he can purchase. as its an AM2+ board but the supported cpu list pretty much shows any cpu on the market (including am3 cpu's)

the only thing i can really see him buying is this: http://www.pccasegear.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=18600

for some odd reason AM2+ cpus aren't sold in australia anymore

heck that will bottleneck even an 8800GT.
Try to find a phenom 9850 black edition or just sell the board and cpu, then get an AM3 triplecore

He needs to upgrade to a Phenom II. Get the best he can afford. Looks like safest bet is a 95Watt chip. I'd either go for 720/740 BE or 945/955 BE 95 Watt. Even at stock they'll blow away that old 2Ghz Phenom 1.

Yeah, it would bottleneck the 560 pretty badly. A 5000+ wouldn't really be any better; it will still be a huge bottleneck.

A Phenom II will rectify the situation though, and looks like the board can handle one.
