Processor from 2008 with GTX 1070 !! meet the beast i7 920

post #1 of 43
Thread Starter 
Dears.

I have been in hardware since 2005. And I do see a lot of people upgrading there machines with no need at all sometime. and sometimes an upgrade that doesn't worth what has been paid for.

I do have i7 920 since 8 years where I can feel it is a close friend of mine. Since my GTX 560 TI was serving me for 5 years playing BF 3 on Ultra and BF on High. I thought it's the time to prepare for BF 1. I did chose to upgrade to gtx 1070.

I was sure that i7 920 can handle it but users across the forums was not believing that is possible by i7 920 and it will have bottleneck. I'm not leaving anyone to say bad thing about my friend i7 920 and challenge accepted.

Here are my specs:
Intel i7 920 @4.20
Gigabyte GTX 1070 G1
HyperX 16 GB 1666
FHD Monitor

- I have tested the cards on BF 4 ULTRA. and changed the card mode to OC Mode to heat up the challenge.



- Checking the i7 920 clock.



- Making sure the card was 99% during BF 4



- After running all 18 valley test.



- Running BF 4 on 2K using DSR.





We can see no bottleneck. and I7 920 has never let me down.
Also found youtube video someone overclock i7 920 to 3.5 only and was able to get the card used 99% Link

Show some respect to my i7 920 friend. thumb.gif

Regards.

Is your i7 920 a C0? Even if it's a D0 consider upgrading to a 6 core 12 thread 32nm Xeon (x5650 and up) for as little as $60 from Ebay. If your motherboard has a bios compatible with it that is.

Try putting your 1070 in a machine with a 2600k at 4.5Ghz or above, and then tell me your 920 is not a bottleneck. My 3770k at 4.6Ghz and 2133Mhz CL9 RAM are a minor bottleneck for my 1070 at 1080p in some games, so I am having a very hard time with the idea that a 920 is letting a 1070 stretch its legs.

Yeah, some people don't understand how bad they have it until they play on a "bottleneck-free" system and realize what they're missing out on.
