Intel Pentium G3258 Performance and Owners Club NOW with GTX 970 - Page 63

post #621 of 4581
Thread Starter 
A short clip of Borderlands 2 in Sanctuary, more and longer footage to come.

All settings maxed except PhysX which is on Low (I had lower GPU utilization with it on for some reason)
It's not much but I thought I might aswell upload something in the meantime demonstrating the frame-rate in an area of the game, whilst I upload the larger and longer footage.

No. It's a very good idea if the mosfets are very high quality and enough in quantity to not care what current you use. That of course is not true for most low end boards like those H81.

Though in the case of the pentium-k the power requirements are so low that probably anything with 6 phases or more can be naked safely.

There fates goes again with the phases... rolleyes.gif

as soon as you plug a cpu into one of fates motherboard, it automagically goes to 100% load forever... no wonder he needs all dem phases..

A longer video demonstrating how the G3258 at 4.4GHz handles Borderlands 2, the frames were really impressive.

Do you have an argument? Or only roll eye emoticons and sarcasm. Because explain to us how a Pentium-K is going to burn a low current-capacity motherboard or how a series of IR3550s is going to overheat without cooling.

Still just about playable in these areas but more cores would see a nicer experience... if only the Pentium had HT. sonic.gif

I think you are referring to "Welcome to the Jungle" part of Crysis 3

It also happens to my A10-5800K + GTX 750 Ti, when the camera view is on the grass, the GPU usage drops to ~60% and CPU usage goes up to ~99%. It happens when I use HIGH System Spec or VERY HIGH System Spec

Lowering down to MEDIUM System Spec increases performance, GPU usage returns to ~99% and CPU usage is ~70%. If you manually set the graphic detail, I think it's the Object Quality that causes it.

Hmm that reminds me, when I tried someone's Phenom II 955 machine with Crysis 3 the same thing happened, the GPU usage plummeted and with it the frame-rate.
It's possibly a demanding scene if that's the case.

Is "Welcome to the Jungle" when you have just upgraded your nano suit for the first time and go outdoors just before you hack the mines? I can remember there was choppy framerates there aswell. There have been quite a few areas (all outdoor with dense foliage) that the CPU has struggled with and been completely maxed out 100%, another example of it is when you go outdoors to where there are lots of trains buried in the grass when your nanosuit has been blocked and you meet the aliens for the first time (I forget their name lol... just remembered the ceph). Changing through all medium to all high/very high makes no difference to the framerate and I'm using an R9 290 to deal with the graphics. I'm certain with more cores this issue would be sorted.

Here are the alternative boards I'm looking at


ASUS Z97M Plus

Gigabyte GA-Z97-D3H

What do you guys think ?

Pentium G3258 is already available here and I just need to decide on the board smile.gif

Thanks
I have 2 asrock motherboards:
asrock b85 pro4.- I can´t activate c&1 voltage saving state. I´ll try again later.
I can oc up to 4.7ghz

asrock z97 extreme3.-
I can oc up to 4.7ghz

I hope I can hit 4.6GHz at 1.35v.

Sounds like a possibility if you're fully stable @ 4.4ghz/1.25v provided you don't hit the wall @ 4.5/4.6. What cooler are you going to use?

For real, even if it was a tri-core without HT I'm sure it would be intensely close to an i5 in gaming performance.
So that's three notable multi-thread intense games, Crysis 3, Star Citizen and Watch Dogs.
Hell of a chip for what it does and costs though, it almost outdoes my Phenom II in everything, where it doesn't is the games which want more threads and relys heavily on them, and there's not too many of them at the moment, the Assassin's Creed IV performance is likely one of the biggest performance boosts I've gotten in games yet, alongside emulators, the way how ACIV ran completely blew my mind, I couldn't believe it.

The emulation performance is simply outrageous, this is likely the best and most affordable chip you can get for emulation for this price, there's nothing quite like it for the cost, previously you had to get a Quad Core K chip if you wanted high performance in emulators!

ACIV runs better on my Z97 rig compared to my heavily watercooled hexa core machine with Xfire R9's thanks to a combination of the single-threaded brilliance of the G3258 and the poor Xfire performance of the game on that rig also.

Haven't messed around with emulation for years, I used to like to play the old megadrive and snes era games, road rash 2 was a favourite from my youth. Good to see the more demanding emulators running well on a cpu at this price point. thumb.gif
