The system configurations are likely different, back ground processes, etc. You may play different maps and in different places of maps, and that absolutely makes a difference. I know for a fact that there are spots at 5760x1080 that will dip to low FPS (40's - 50's) even with a 4.8 GHz 6-core and 780 Ti SLI. There's just bad spots in some maps. Maybe one guy encountered those and maybe the other didn't.I will trust the two machines sitting on my desk that I personally built and set up extremely similarly and the personal experience
I've had with them over a couple guys discussing FPS differences on a forum. I was excited to see some graphs.
I'll just tell ya from first hand experience that, when set up the same and put in similar situations, the difference isn't much.
I hope you notice that what I marked in bold its exactly
what other members did and shared here/with you?
So how's that different from other people that build those two machines and shared their experience with you? I know there're many variables(NVCP settings, Ram timings/speed, CPU speed, running processes etc) but hey, each one share his own experience that hey had.. And someone can always ask another member for the settings used so he can see if they played a role in that shared information.. E.g: Did you had AO in Quality? etc etc...
And also if you build those two machines and share you experience here, I can come and say the same thing you said to you about your experience/fps discussion.
You think you are the only one that can build a good/clean uncluttered setup with as low processes as possible and everyone else systems are fragmented/bogged down/slow/running 100+ proccesses?
No offense meant btw. Its just for the sake of the "discussion". Edited by Koniakki - 12/18/13 at 1:17am
