And you're very much under estimating Indie developers, you give them a machine with a 6x power jump and expect them to not use it?
/me looks at minecraft
No, I'm not. Minecraft does not use all my CPU, it does not use anywhere close to even half my GPU. It has been that way since day 1.
You are showing your ignorance in thinking that everyone everywhere will max out everything, and to top it off, you're being incredibly stupid in trying to do so while the topic is on minecraft
of all games.
I told Minecraft to go all out on my 6970. Guess what:
Oh that's right! I'm CPU limited! 200 FPS at 6020x1080, and my GPU wasn't even breaking a sweat since it was only at 43% usage for this. That gives me a theoretical max of 463 FPS at 6020x1080 if I didn't have a CPU bottleneck.
Now, according to the wiki, 4k is 3840 × 2160. Alright, So. 8294400 pixels vs my 6501600.
6501600 / 8294400 = 0.7838 x 463 = 362.9(for those who want to keep track, this is well over half, I'm still CPU limited to 200 FPS)
That's serious overkill. But wait! We're doing this on a 7850, not a 6970!
Well I'm lazy, so I'll use HWCompare. http://www.hwcompare.com/12075/radeon-hd-6970-vs-radeon-hd-7850/
Hmm... That puts the 7850 53% of the 6970 at it's absolute weakest point. Realistically speaking, since MC doesn't have any anisotropic filtering, lets call it 30% weaker on the whole.
So after my e-peen recovers, lets do a .7 x 362.9.
Ok, well.... I'm still CPU bottlenecked into 200FPS. Even with a 7850 at 4K.
So Minecraft could run at 4K 60FPS even with just an A10 and 7850, using under 25% of the GPU, and around 40% of the CPU.
But ya, no games ever will run 4K. Edited by KyadCK - 11/15/12 at 2:47am
