[Tom's Hardware] FX Vs. Core i7: Exploring CPU Bottlenecks And AMD CrossFire - Page 35

The point is which CPU is best at gaming.

Last I heard, 1080p is standard.

But lower resolutions are more useful for testing CPU performance. I suppose it isn't very realistic to benchmark CFX 7970s at low resolutions.

Okay, here's where I'm having a problem. The human eye is literally incapable of processing any video at faster than 30 fps, which is why Hollywood puts out all their films at 27 fps. Basically all I'm seeing is that on max settings the 8350 is every bit as good as the i7 in a practical sense and anything extra fps above and beyond 30 fps is just bragging rights.

All wrong... 24fps for video relates back to the projector days and huamns have no problem seeing over 30fps so get your facts straight before posting.

Yeah, it does test CPU bottlenecking better, but who uses Cfx 7970s at 720p? There are also other factors in high res setups that may be CPU dependent.

...Yeah, that's why the difference between 30 and 60 FPS is REALLY obvious.

Um, it's not? I've been playing video games since I was three (yay for NES!) and I'll be damned if I've ever been able to tell the difference for anything above 30 fps. Now, excuse me, I need to go take some aspirin after watching the ping pong moons with their artificial motion blue for far too long.

Yea the reason for 24/30 FPS standards is not because that is how many FPS the eye sees (eyes don't work the same way as screens anyway), that has to do with motion capture. Except at very high speeds, capturing video at 24 FPS produces motion effects that we are comfortable with. This does not apply to rendered images since it is not captured. The motion effects depend on the engine that renders the image and are independent of the framerate they are displayed at.

Claypool, Claypool and Damaa (2006) report that performance saturates in a first-person shooter game at about 30 fps.

Learn something before you bring hostility at me, you hormonally-ridden aspie.

Haha.... some random website?

1. The 24fps was brought in during the old cinema projection days, way before we had VCR's and CRT TV's

2. Film standard is 24fps and not 27fps like you claimed.

3. Hollywood itself is making the move to 45fps and 60fps, why would Hollywood move above 30fps if we can't see the difference?

That's right.... because you are wrong.
