Originally posted by: cliveneo yea i think u r right thanny. after playing with varied cpu speeds it would appear the open areas that i have mention gained a low fps by 3 or 4 bringing it closer to 30. so if i had a fx 8530 and oced it around 4.5 give or take that would increase my min fps to prolly around 35 to 40.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Piledriver is roughly 5% slower than Phenom II on a clock for clock basis.  A FX 8350 at 4.5GHz would be less than 5% faster than your 1090T at 4.1GHz.  So where you're getting 30fps now, you'd be getting about 31fps with a FX 8350. 

 

Your only path to real improvement is to jump back to Intel, where pretty much any i7 at 4.5GHz would get you from 30fps to about 45fps.  Lowering the Level of Detail setting is a much cheaper fix.

 

 

 

I agree with you totally after reading your explanation. Makes sense. Maybe I will plunge into the deeps of btr water cooling as my 1090 sits at 19c idle n bout 25 to 30 load with a H50. If I get something btr maybe a higher OC

what i am going to try to hold me over is i deff have a good cpu, the move to FLA didnt help as it is hotter here so i had to back down to 3.8 3.9 since ive been here. plus i also had central air plus my own wall ac unit in my old office where it was a constant 68 degrees F. i got two 120mm fans by corsair the hydro ones @ 2500 rpms as oppose to my current 1500 rpm ones. see if that will bring me a lil lower as my oc is limited by my temps. if i can get my cpu to a 4.2- 4.3 i should pick up the slack a lil. I am not going to turn this thread into a green vs red but i had a i7 rig a 920 that i had @ 3.8 with a x58 n a gtx 470. Nvidia/intel lost me as customer due to money vs performance ratio. I can build a powerhouse rig for hundreds less that usually is only out performed by synthetic benches. I dont like payin and extra 2 to 3 hung cpu and hung gpu for syns n a 5 to 7 fps difference (in some cases more if the CPU is more dependant, Like here) thats just me. Thats around 400 more on average i could use for a gpu or other componants. Heck ive been wit nvidia/ amd back in the day when they were friends n recently moved to AMD at the release of the 5xxx series and up after the takeover of ATI bc i like the idea of a platform. but other posters are right GE the only way we will see a 10 n in some cases 15 fps increase during CPU dependant apps, clock for clock is going intel bro. I deff fiddled wit thannys theory n it proves true. I have similar comps n they prove the same numbers when u factor the difference in other hardware on board and calculate the changes. We r deff CPU limtied with any last/ current gen AMD cpu. and the gain going to a a FX 83xx, for me its CPU n new MOBO as my current is a AM3 board not AM3+, is just not worth it. Even gong another 79xx card for me n 78xx for u isnt worth it GE as it will only increase the bottleneck even more in certain cases.

again they didnt test the games open levels only area from the first level. when u get into the areas we were discussing, the game becomes way more CPU dependant

just thought id bring this thread back to life with a update. I can confirm that after upgrading to a FX 8320 and OCin it to 4.6 increased my max FPS in the areas I mentioned- mountain village shantytown from 26 to above 40. WHICH is on par or close to the intel users thats posted here.  Upgraded from a Phenom II x6 1090 n gigabyte 890fx UD5 to a FX 8320 n Gigabyte 990FX ud3
