Is AMD going to x86 instead of staying x64? Why? - Page 8

post #71 of 74
That's right I was referring to a Bad Company 2 benchmark which does in fact max a GTX580, obviously to achieve this the game has to fully use 4 cores. When a game fully uses 4 or more cores that is actually a huge amount of processing power. I agree with your post.

I only saw a about 10 fps average more in games that use 4 or more cores, like Mafia 2 or BFBC2.

The problem was it was near it's limit with a single card, when I tried to fraps I took a huge performance hit on my AMD rigs.

I can play BFBC2 with a i5-2500k and my gtx 470 and never drop below the min I was getting without fraps on the AMD rigs.

The sheer amount of "headroom" the Intel chips have is insane, even compared to an x6 from AMD.

Wow, that must have been a nice experience.

I am sure there are plenty in there if I wanted one, but I am not building any servers until much closer to launch because I am too busy these days.

It really helped all parts, min, avg, max... but the most important was the min. In games where the 1090T would bottleneck the gpu as much as 50% it created a huge loss in FPS. In dual threaded games I got about the same FPS with a 9800GT card on my 1090T as I got with a GTX 470 (in certain areas). To me that constitutes a fundamental problem, no matter what gpu I got I'd still be sitting at the same frames because the original gpu wasn't the problem, it was the cpu all along.

I never said it was crap, however it is subpar. GPU is the most important part of a gaming rig, but you need a cpu that can push it.


The reason I'm here stating it is because I went through SEVERAL AMD chips, spent $150 on a water loop, and all the while nobody with an AMD chip told me that my problem wasn't going to be solved while using an AMD chip.

My only hope is that I save a few other people the hassle of going through several tiers of AMD chips trying to increase their overall gaming experience.
you said also , that stock intel chips have that kind of bottleneck..
and thats why you needed OC it...
