IMO it would be better to discuss the implications of the processor and not jump to the value declaration of it demanding a certain processor. The graphs speak for themselves, but not necessarily of what is required for a certain experience.
I guess I'm trying to say that better doesn't equal required.

Well put, my post was not meant to say that a Sandy Bridge was "required" to play the game or that the game "demanded" it either. But I was speaking along the lines of getting 60 fps everywhere before 1.4 and two performance boosting mods, that a Sandy Bridge was required to get to those levels of frames (keyword here) consistently throughout the entire game. I know very well that smoothness of gameplay is very subjective. No doubt about that and I'm not arguing that your sense of smooth is the same as mine as they aren't. Everyone is different, but subjectively I like my games to be 60 fps because I do notice hitching when panning my camera around noticeably fast.

@Cmoney Read the graphs again, it was "required" to have a SB process to get 60 fps. Did I say that I was required to play the game? No, read my post. Smooth as you've said is subjective. I'm not trying to fight with you at all or try to sound bigheaded. I stated very clearly in my post that this "fact" no longer applies now because of 1.4. Any recent processor has enough power to play the game more than sufficiently at 60 fps now.

As far as the stuttering goes, yes that's a fact of any game made with Gamebyro. With Hi-Res textures most of the time it's the fact that people are either not using an SSD or they don't have sufficient VRAM. Or that their drivers are just screwed up. I stated that I was CPU bound before SB, and now I'm GPU bound. Is everyone else's systems different? Sure. Again just stating my opinion.

It seems just because I talked down on the AMD chip that people have to get that knee-jerk reaction, I don't hate on AMD because I was AMD for the last 6 years. I don't want to fight. Sorry I even commented...

Don't equate a disagreement with an argument. Discussions aren't about being right, they are about thinking.

The discussion of a disagreement is more important than agreeing, that's where people think. If two people discussing something agree, one of them isn't needed in the discussion. I'd like to think that two rational people can reign in the natural defensiveness of an exchange and actually exchange ideas without being saddled by the necessity to be the "right" one.

I think you were fairly clear about the level of expectation on your part of 60fps performance, but it deserved discussion.

Great video btw, but it kinda makes me sad, I hope we get to see some of those improvements..

I might not be popular for this, but why don't we have a separate thread now for skyrim gameplay only and leave this thread for all the mods and tweaks? At another forum I post at that's exactly what they have, one thread for mods and tweaks, and one thread purely for gameplay questions, observations, gameplay discussions and videos. People here are posting cool videos and things to do with the game which don't get much response, and almost every post is about some mod or HD pack. It seems the mods and tweaks are more important than the game itself. Just a thought.

If you feel like you have the time to create and maintain a mod thread, go ahead and create one tongue.gif Nevermind a quick search brings up Milambers thread, looks like it didn't take off though, probably because the other two threads are pretty well established.

but I kinda agree, same with the screenshot thread, to much posing, not enough gameplay shots etc, though I'm guilty of that myself redface.gif

It was only for "fun" as mentioned already. A creative week they got free reign to work on whatever they desired. Some of it may see release at some point, but they are not saying what exactly.
