A single 570 isn't powerful enough to differentiate between the more powerful quad cores because it becomes the limiting factor.
Well I guess what this shows is real world data then which is more useful that benchmarks that show resolutions that people with the hardware won't be playing at.

The clocks the tests were ran at were at stock to boost. Looks like my q6600 wont need an upgrade till BF3.

Crysis 2 isn't as hard on the PC as BC2 multi-player. I can't even imagine what BF3 is going to do to our systems with even more CPU Havok physics. Minimum specs required: i7 920 / X6 1075T. Preferred: 2600K @ 5Ghz.

Glad to see that 4 cores are getting more love from games now biggrin.gif

You could assume that the frostbite 2.0 engine will also be better optimized. But I don't think it will be as taxing as you may think.

Looks to me this game uses 2-3 cores/3-4 threads.
If it fully used 4, you would see drop-off with the HT duals.

The AMD X2's are a little behind, but the triple are right there.
Noticeable disadvantage with a 2 core/2 thread CPU.

Hopefully it's gonna all 8 threads (hello, HT!).
And I very much doubt we'll see a difference going from 2600K @ 4Ghz to 2600K @ 5Ghz... Not without insane GPU horsepower, at least.

I'm pretty sure this is wrong. Anything above 1080p is either for extremely high end SLI/Crossfire gaming systems or professional/CAD applications.

I'm willing to bet 1680x1050 is still the most common resolution for gaming PCs, if not something below that like 1440x900/1366x768/1280x1024. Most people are still on 8800 series GPUs, and back then 1680x1050 was the best resolution at which they could pull off playable frames while maxing out games (though they struggled, especially with their common 512MB VRAM limitation). If people are going to play today's games with older GPUs they would probably drop the resolution first if it means them getting more playable framerates (and it will since this game is again almost entirely GPU bound).

And I'm disappointed somewhat since it seems to barely tell the difference between a dual core and a quad.

Also DDR1333MHz on Q6600 and other socket 775 CPUs? Really?
confused.gif What do you mean? That they tested socket 775 machines or that they had ddr2 1333mhz ram?

Dude I posted that ages ago. Read the rest of the thread, I didn't know when I posted that they were using socket 775 motherboards with chipsets supporting DDR3 RAM, because it cost a freakin' fortune back then and because 90% if not more socket 775 users are on DDR2.
