Gaming Performance: better an I7-920@ 4,51Ghz or a 980X@ 4,4Ghz?

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,

As from title I'm interested in gaming at 99%, I play at 1920*1080, I have a crossfire of 7970 ( even a trifire but I probably sell the third):

would it be better an I7-920 at 4,51Ghz (memory at 1730 CL8)?

Or an I7-980X at 4,4 Ghz (memory at 2000 CL8)?

Thanks a lot!

Should be near enough identical in most cases. Very few games can use the additional cores of the 980X, and the differences in CPU and RAM frequency aren't large enough be noticeable outside benchmarks.

i agree with Vonnis, i dont think it will make much of a difference to be worth the premium of a 990x.

Yeah, definitely not worth it for just gaming. Just stick with the 920, at 4.5ghz I can't imagine it having a problem with anything you can throw at it.

tri-fire would be wasted at 1080p. a lot of members here tell others even dual crossfire is a waste for 1080p. for 120hz monitors though, dual cards will keep you above 120 in any game that youre not vram limited.

Some people imagine that adding cards only is about adding up performance to get higher numbers, and ignore that fact that adding another GPU actually give you the opportunity to increase the picture quality settings without loosing speed !. So even though you thing you're CPU limited, then crank op the Anti-aliasing levels to the max - now you see the graphic cards sweat.
Yes if you game at 1080 with max 4xAA then a single HD7970 would be fine. Adding a 2nd would just add the FPS until you hit the CPU limit. Instead crank the AA levels up and you'll see the benefit of adding extra cards since the single HD7970 wouldn't cope 16xAA but the two or three of them easily will.
Adding GPU's is not just about speed IMO !.

Maybe with tri-fire, but my old 920 never had a problem feeding two overclocked 680's at 4.2ghz. There was an ever so slight bottleneck sometimes but GPU usage never went lower than 95-96%, usually it was at 98-99%.

Thanks guys for all your replies! smile.gif

My aim is to keep 60fps at 1080p with ultra settings, AA at 2X or 4X, AF at 16X, AO and some heavy mods like maldo 4.0 for crysis, mods for skyrim etc.
