is haswell-e 4th gen cpu? - Page 8

post #71 of 77

Oh, well typically we'd go by actual benchmark numbers. Not like you can directly compare Stat A with Stat B when both GPUs are different architectures.

Until then, we just have speculations and hope. No prices, no benches. Just PR

turned off AA in bf4 framerate still goes down to 40-50 sometimes. Thats just ridiculous man.

We're CPU bound man. Wondering if the hexacores fare better.

Neither of these is going to help. I think you need to realize that running heavy TXAA/MSAA at 1440p is beyond the capability of your two GTX 780 in SLI if you want to "guarantee" that you won't drop below 60FPS in all situations. I'm running three Titans in Tri-SLI with a 3930K at 4.3 GHz and I can't do it - you certainly won't do it with two slower GPU and a moderately faster CPU.

p.s. BF4 is in beta. I wouldn't use it for any benchmarks until it's released, AND NVidia has had a chance to optimize performance in the drivers.

Ya using a beta is the worst possible thing to use to test performance on something, lots of bugs and code that isn't going to be int he full game. Also BF4 runs smooth as butter on windows 8, with the same hardware when i boot into windows 7 i get far less frames using lower settings then i do in windows 8, because it is infact a beta. The devs probally coded the game to run on windows 8 and had to modify things to run smooth on 7.

Should be 30% less demanding than 1440p, but you still won't get performance levels where FPS will never drop below 60. Some games are just poorly optimized for multi-core processors, or have physics coding that needs optimization. Wait until BF4 is released, give NVidia 3-5 weeks to work on production driver optimizations, and then test it on your i5 and see if it's acceptable.

I have no idea if BF4 is even optimized for multi-core. If it's not, you won't see any benefit moving up to a hex or eight core CPU over your i5. You'll need to focus on a CPU with a higher single-thread performance. The 4670K with a decent OC might be a good choice, of course you're going to need a new motherboard and RAM to find out.
