Intel Pentium G3258 Performance and Owners Club NOW with GTX 970 - Page 146

post #1451 of 4581
Anyone have some results for this chip playing Path of Exile? Seems to be fairly single core dependent and I was wondering what kind of difference it might make over my 8320.

I have mines overclocked to 4.4Ghz with a xfx 7950 clocked at 900/1250 (stock). I get around 250 fps in POE sitting in hideout. I keep my fps throttled down to 80 though to reduce extra strain through rivatuner though. I can maintain 80 fps in most group maps too, unless its something really flashy.

Here is link to imgur with screenshots at 1080p: http://i.imgur.com/8O6wBm9.png

Geez, with my 8320 at 4.5ghz I get around 55 fps in the same area with an R9 270. GPU usage never goes over 30-35% even in heavy combat.

That doesn't seem quite right. I get more GPU usage than you on average. The the R9 280 is a rebranded 7950, so your GPU should be maxing itself if you have no fps cap.

Well, Core 1 on the CPU sits at 80-95% all the time so I'm assuming that would be why. I've had the same issue with other heavily single core games like World of Tanks, going from an AMD 8-core to a Haswell chip at the same frequency net me a 100% FPS gain in many maps.

Guess your CPU is bottlenecking hard in this case then. This pentium + mobo only costed me about $130, so its not expensive at all to just upgrade. Budget was too small for a decent i3/i5. However, when you do too many different things at once, I think I notice a bit of slowdown compared to a cpu with more threads. My previous computers have all been quadcore i7s with 8 threads, so its a change to a desktop with only 2 threads even if the core speed is much faster with OC.

Would a r9 270x 4gb crossfire bottleneck g3268? Mobo is MSI z87 g41 Pc mate. Second card would be running x4 only because of pcie2

In some games it will.
