post #321 of 358
my six core oc'ed to 4GHz is good enuf for C3. With the 7970 stock, 1080 VERY HIGH (all) and 4 MSAA . . .



it dips down to the high 20s redface.gif . . .



it baffles me 'cause it does not stutter.

So anything less than 8 is poorly threaded? Do enlighten us if you're such a programming god rolleyes.gif

Theres a reason why clock for clock matters so much. Most programs aren't 'well threaded'.

AMD also may not have the distribution network that Intel has, inflating their prices in certain markets, even say Canada. As far as I can find, the cheapest 8350 is $199. The cheapest 3570k is $26 more. Sure, if I actually did encoding or rendering often then I'd actually say, Intel absolutely blows. But how often is my cpu every doing something like that?

In a game, your CPU should never even get close to 60 FPS at minimum. Most people on OCN spend exponentially more on their GPU setups and having your four digit 2-4way being bottlenecked by your $200 CPU is ridiculous.


Still, I applaud AMD's efforts. It no longer feels as absolutely hopeless and abject like the Core2 vs Athlonx2, Phenom days.

In my case what prevent me get 60 fps is my GPU, not my CPU, and never ever had dips to 20 in that place

For current games one Phenom II x6@4ghz is more than enough

with those settings in C3 - 1080 all Very High and 4 MSAA, even my i7 o'ced to 4.5GHz goes down that low. i never tried overclocking my gpus. with single gpu, i normally i play at High and 4MSAA. using crossfire, then i normally play at Very High and 4 MSAA. gotta have that 4 MSAA even in BF3.

Just going to say B.S., to the title of thread and to thoughs who continue to say it.
Just deside wich platform and cpu you want to build and money you want to spend.
Amd or Intel.

I like both, although I'm partial to AMD because it delivers the BEST VALUE hands down. However, I'm not liking how the accompanying motherboard chipsets and features lag behind the ones that support the Intel processors.

If you provide me with a good choice of micro-ATX or mini-ITX with chipsets like the X79 or Z77 for example then I'd be happy. But, I currently build with Intel because of the good variety of motherboards with decent chipsets and features in those form factors.
