Phenom X6 1100T BE to i5-3570k - would the upgrade be worth it?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
My friend has the x6 1100T @ 3.6Ghz and he mainly plays Battlefield 3.His GPU is the GTX 580.I don't know if you know the guy called Threatty,pretty famous in youtube.I'm talking about him:
Click for his channel
If ,let's say,right now he gets 60ish fps in BF3 on high,how much would he get with and i5-3570k?He'll probably OC to 4.3-4.5Ghz.Something around 15ish FPS performance boost ,more or less?
Thx in advance!

Can his monitor handle a higher FPS than 60? If not, then no.

If he were to invest in a 120hz monitor as well, go for it, if not, he should be fine.

His monitor is 120Hz already.He wants to make the upgrade,he isn't just sure if it's really worth it.Will get get more frames?
P.S. He has already planned a GPU upgrade,so don't suggest he should go SLI instead of new CPU.

I'd say it isn't worth it. Next gen sure but not for this gen.

Probably overclocked, but since he'd need a new motherboard regardless, and he's not in urgent need, why not wait for Haswell, for either new processors or price drops?

Well from what i've read next gen is only going to deliver 10-15% more . Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Twice the vector processing performance
At least 10% sequential CPU performance increase (8 execution ports per core versus 6)
Up to double the performance of the integrated GPU. (Haswell GT3 vs Ivy Bridge HD4000)
Leave that away,i'm just asking is the i5-3570k better and if yes,by how much? I ask for him but for me too,i'm curious.

Yes, of course the 3570K is better. Shoot, a 2500K was better, and so were the pre-Sandy Bridge i7's. Core for core, a Phenom II isn't that much faster than a Core 2 series CPU; it just has more cores.

With that said, if your friend is planning on a GPU upgrade, he's already doing the best thing he can to improve performance. Moving up from an 1100T to a 3570K will provide an increase in framerates, but not enough to justify the expense. With modern systems, the GPU's do most of the work and don't need much help from the CPU. Unless this is just a bragging rights thing and he wants the most FPS at any cost, there's not much practical reason to do the upgrade.

Will the Phenom X6 1100T BE bottleneck a single GTX 680? And what about GTX 680 SLI? He'll go SLI once he gets the money.

i5-3570K is wayyyyy better. No contest and yes, he would see a significant jump in framerate. How much of a jump? I'm not sure and it would be phony to throw guesstimates around but I stand by my statement that the jump would be significant.

Your friend also has the option of upgrading to an FX-8320 which still isn't an i5-3570K at gaming but isn't too far off
