Google games that wont boot on 2 cores? ive never had to budget build that hard before for gaming.

Yeah I talked to him bout and his thinking bout going with the 6100, I'll hear tomorrow. Hey, you'd be surprised but the 1060 can actually do 2k gaming quiet well even with just a 6100, but I did tell him 4K was out of the question lol but I'll post some benchmarks when it's all said and done if you're interested regardless which CPU he picks lol

What games are your client interested in playing?

A pure dual core processor in this day and age for a gaming budget build is a terrible idea, I wouldn't advise it at all.

The G3258 got away with it as it was introduced slightly before the shift to games being more reliant on multi-threaded performance in 2014.

Dual core processors are still able to run quite a lot of the newer games but their performance isn't guaranteed to be smooth or consistent, and it's a real pain if you want to play a game but the processor isn't competent enough, the GTX 1060 is also going to be heavily bottle-necked in the latest games.

I have a huge G3258 thread here: Intel Pentium G3258 Performance and Owners Club NOW with GTX 970

I haven't tested any 2016 releases but the last game I tested was Fallout 4 which seemed to run okay with a 30 frames per second lock.

I see, my client tends to like to play survival type games like Ark quiet a lot as well as games like Fallout and Witcher 3 (which is another reason why I'm trying to get him to go with a 6100 lol)

The G4400 does fine in terms of performance but I was just wanting to know what games won't boot up on a two thread CPU.
he can get a rx 480 and get and i3 instead or evne an used i5 from older socket. and an g4400 wont do "fine " with a mid tier card and recent games. so performance wont be the proper

I built a system for a buddy of mine with a 6100 and a r9 380 and its been nothing but smooth sailing since, everytime i ask him how its been running he says perfect, so i can only assume so as ive never run any benchmarks with it lol, but he has played every new triple A title since i built it and hasnt complained so i again assume its running him perfect. 1080p is really the sweet spot for budget builds, dont get me wrong 1440p is possible but to really get the best bang for your buck its at 1080p, at least imo.

I mean I linked some benchmarks that show the G4400 running some new games at 60fps near max settings... But yeah I mentioned the RX480 but he wanted the GTX 1060 for future proofing and he also wants the LGA 1151 socket for again, future proofing.

framerate benchmarks wont show the FPS drops occurs in ms frametimes do. and if he wanted ot futureproof. the rx 480 is the wya tyo go, AMD drivers are improved longer time, unlike nvidia driver which arent improved past a new arch is released. about going witha cheap haswell CPU will not differ a lot from skylake

Yeah I know but benchmarks do show something and it's not like you can't track such frame rate drops, they appear and even in one of the videos I linked he mentioned the CPU dropping frames twice during fallout 4, and let's just agree to disagree on the RX480 vs 1060 thing.....

As far as im the haswell vs skylake he just wanted the newer platform which skylake, the haswell is more of an enthuiast thing now, if you don't plan on spending over $400 on a CPU then the skylake CPUs do out perform their haswell equals.
