will the Q6600 @ 3.6Ghz be equivalent or even close to i& 920@ 3.2Ghz? - Page 2

post #11 of 23
An overclocked q6600 wont be a bottle neck however when comparing clock for clock against a i7 920. The 920 is alot faster. i dont remember the benches off the top of my head but it was around 25% faster in benches relating to video encoding.

If you don't do do the intensive work then i wouldnt bother to upgrade until you feel you do.

Probably only because they're both run at stock clock speeds. At the same clocks, the Q6600 will leave it in the dust. Even with a Core i3 at 4.5GHz, at 3.6GHz the Q6600 will be faster in most benchmarks and in real-world.

Bottlenecks ARE overrated.

A RELEVANT and CLEAR bottleneck would be getting 25 FPS with the Q6600 and 100 FPS with the i7.

This is NOT the case.

IMO, you can't call it a bottleneck if you get 85 FPS with the Q6600 and 100 FPS with the i7. That's the i7 simply being a faster CPU. Nothing more.

Bottleneck implies a SEVERE impairment of one component caused by another.

I suppose you are right if you want to say bottlenecks are only when it is a severe limit to the gpu. IMO though anytime the gpu isn't able to run at its max should be considered a bottleneck. Granted most of the time even with the bottleneck the game will still be perfectly playable but it is still limiting the gpu's speed. All a bottleneck implies imo is that it doesn't allow something to run at its optimal speed.

Q6600 turns 5 years this year, and still pushing high-end gaming performance (when OCed).

+1.

Mine is still going strong.

That's a pretty bold claim.

Its nice reading from everyone giving good feedbacks about the Q6600. Makes me feel a little better since I'm still not working and its not easy to save up.

TYPING IN CAPS MAKES YOU GET YOUR POINT ACROSS.

A bottleneck is something that is holding another part back, the Q6600 does have limitation especially with the absolute newest games paired with a high end GPU.

The Q6600 is a solid CPU, it depends on the game you play. Architectural upgrades and an entirely different take on the bus that powers your rig have shown significant improvement especially in multi-gpu configurations.

You will be held back with that CPU. Performance increases are huge with the newer tech. Check out some benchmarks with the Core 2 architecture vs the Core i series in games with the same GPU, should be enough right there to tide you over.
