On top of that...this is just a patch. I have a feeling that if a game was compiled with the Mantle Options set that we might get more out of it.
Though I am really beginning to get suspect of the A10 + 290 results increasing 40%...I have never seen an A10 perform that much worse in games than even a 3770k when combined with the same GPU, but I haven't tried BF4 on it. I've seen the benches showing an old althlon x4 combined with a 290 getting 88fps and all the top end CPUs were at 95fps on an obvious GPU bottleneck.
There is no way an A10 should even have room to increase by 40%. I build rigs for people all the time using them and they are not that bad of a CPU. Does every one think this is even possible?This is what I am posting about
I mean it is still only "High" settings, but how could that A10 increase 40%? That would be like...35fps putting it far above the high end CPUs with their measly performance boost. Does ultra change the CPU usage that much?Edited by Vagrant Storm - 1/30/14 at 9:48am
