    CPU for Gamers : 30 CPUs compared

    I tested & measured gaming performances of "all" properly-existing CPUs in the market. Criterion for determining 'properly-existing' is that, a product shouldn't be being replaced by latter SKU at the same price level(ex: IVB is replaced by Haswell). Hope that could help those who are considering buying or upgrading one's gaming machine. Here we start.

    Test system is composed as follow:
    (+ VGA : GF GTX780Ti)

    Since the host provider (of my blog) consider sudden traffic increment as an abusing, I'm going to upload the summary part of all results only.

    Here's the performance summary at 1680 x 1050 resolution. The former one emphasizes just a sum of framerates of all games while the latter one implies average relative performance of each CPU. Of course the latter one is more important.

    Here's for 1920 x 1080 resolution.

    Here's for 2560 x 1600 resolution.

    Well, the article is over. Thanks for reading this.
    Have a nice day!

    I wish you would've done some test for World of Warcraft given that its such a CPU centric game (i'm talking about raid environments before someone comments that a Celeron is good enough).

    Great stuff thou!

    I see someone has a 4790K. I'm jealous. I want to see how well it overclocks compared to my 4770k.

    not that between "gameing" processors there is really much of a difference in the first place

    While thats true, its also to have a great proof that this doesnt mean that the differences are HUGEE like some people say even while using the most powerful single gpu card now ;-) 15% is not the end of the world.And thats between a 1000$ cpu and a 200$ one.Yes i know that SLI/CFX would show much larger disparity ,but most people use single gpu confs.
