Its a fresh install on wow, with no addons also ;/
BF3 is multithreaded and that's why you see good FPS. WoW on the other hand certainly won't take advantage of all 8 threads (I'm not familiar with the game but would guess it only uses 2 threads). Single-threaded performance on Bulldozer isn't the greatest. Here is a test Toms did
, you can see Bulldozer performance isn't the best and doesn't account for the FPS spikes as it only has average frames listed, not minimum or anything else.
Overclocking the CPU more will help. You can also tweak NB frequency and RAM frequency which will still help, but to a lesser extent than the core frequency.Edited by Dopamin3 - 2/6/12 at 1:31am
