How much a game can benefit of an overclocked CPU?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hi, I was looking for graphs that shows how an overclocked CPU can make a difference (when using a discrete VGA) over the same not-overclocked CPU (like, how much FPS difference there is in Battlefield 3 when using a powerful GPU like an Nvidia 680 with an overclocked i3770k over an i3770k with stock frequencies). I wish you could help me, looks like I can't find them myself... Thanks.

they haven't been doing it that long but since MOH it seems to be a part of the performance review.

I'm interested in seeing bf3 numbers??? And also the difference between the 3570k and 3770k for that game?

well really it depends on the game and the system

something like Crysis 3 or Far Cry 3 would benefit a lot more from it then... say... Minesweeper.
also if your getting lots of CPU bottlenecking the improvement would be much more significant then if you were getting GPU bottlnecking

you'd have to look at some specific graphs to get a comparison on your system

MOH uses the same engine as BF3 so i would believe the performance would be similar enough to look at a MOH bench and be able to translate it to BF3. i am not saying it would be exactly the same but close enough.

I'm not sure if this is right but we must factor in ram plays a bit of extent?
Depending on your OC you'll see a reasonable different. We're probably not talking about more than 30 frames but probably more than 5-10 easily.
Wish I had graphs for you, I had some that showed bf3 a long time ago but i reformatted and forgot to save all my favorites frown.gif lost all the cool links
