Would my i7 3770k be sufficient for the next 3 years?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Would you say the i7 3770k would be good enough to play next gen games (paired with SLI 780s or something) like battlefield 4 for at least the next 3 years?

The way cpu improvements have been the past few years, I would say it should last a long time, especially overclocked to 4.8ghz.

Unless AMD can actually compete, I would assume intel is going to focus more on power consumption/igpu etc instead of increasing performance in the future. So it seems like performance is going to stagnate a bit.

Thanks for the reply.

I honestly have no need for something like an i7 3930 or 3970x or w/e (the CPUs that cost like 1k lol).

Benchmarks wise for games they are on par with the i7 3770k, and the i7 3770k is only beaten on tasks of no importance to me like video stuff or photo related things.

Sufficient is a broad term. My son uses my 6 year old dual core 2.13 ghz E6400 in his gaming rig with a 5770 and plays everything on medium to high.

Sufficient as in can I run battlefield 4 (a game which is probably going to be quite demanding) or other "next-gen" games like titanfall, dragon age 3 at 120+ fps.

My current set up lets me play BF3 at about 60-80 FPS on ultra (minus motion blur). I'm held back by my GPU I think (1176 core/7008 mem).

Well to be honest I don't think there is any cpu out on the consumer market that can manage 120fps at all times in BF3 in multiplayer.
