I installed Tomb Raider to bench it, but I'm having another (but different) issue with savegames. This time I can't restore the saves I kept from last time I played it. No matter what I do the stupid game says they're corrupt - which I'm pretty sure they're not - and it won't let me use them. Does anyone know how to solve this? There aren't any good CPU benchmark levels at the beginning of the game, and I'm damned if I'm going battle through all those QTEs again.

I don't think there's any point in messing with HT quads now with Haswell-E set to make hex core processors more 'mainstream' (so to speak).

I'm personally still not interested in Hyperthreading at all, even after the Crysis 3 result. All that's done is made me more interested in procesors with more than 4 real cores. I'm hoping Haswell-E is going to give us some decent IPC gains though, as well as more cores.

How come these tests are always done with one gpu frown.gif i have a 3570k pushing 3 290x. I would like to see if I can benefit from simply going to a 3770k or if spending $700 on going lga2011 is justified. I already know I get 100% cpu usage on all cores in crysis 3. But I would like to know what kind of improvement I would see changing platform. Anyway you could get your hands on one or two more gpu? I just want to see 3570k, 3770k, 4930k against eachother in a 3 gpu setup. 1440p or above

This thread was dealing with straight CPU bottlenecks, and how games scale on multiple cores. PCI-E bandwidth in mainstream vs HEDT platforms is a completely separate issue.

That can just be a bonus variable. I would just like to see framerate vs. framerate at the same overclock my three cards with my cpu and ram vs putting them with a 4930k on a 2011 board.. Gains and how much? If you want to say "why" get a cheap platform with 3 290x.. Then show me a 3570k with three cards vs. a 4930k with two cards (would be similar in price/budget). I know this thread is diff. Does any bench exist showing this?
