I know what you are saying but my gist is that BF4 is NOT
coded to use 2 CPU's. Nor is any other AAA game. Sure a scientific benchmark , folding, video encoding will do great when those apps are coded to actually use 2 CPU's.
I just got the impression that the grandstanding was making the impression of his rig being better at BF4 because of the Xeon's...My point was his rig is stellar at multithreading, but only alot better than a 3960x when that second CPU is put into play. Then he of course blows everything away.
Not knocking him, just trying to keep it in perspective.
And on Topic, I still say Welcome Back to February 2013 if the performance we expect hits reality with the R9 series. Basically nothing to see here other than AMD putting out a product for brand awareness only and some sales to keep the ball rolling. Most of us shopping at the expected price points already have what we need performance wise. If Maxwell is far off this may be a boring cycle.Edited by Ghoxt - 10/8/13 at 7:45am
