#46 TF2 benchmarks in TF2 General Discussion
WaldoOblivionageWaldoEDIT: Ran all tests again, this time with my CPU overclocked to 4.2GHz, got only around 15 more fps, does anyone know why my results are so shitty?
The x1xx series for AMD's FX processors are pretty bad. What resolution do you play on? You might want to save up a $140 and buy a 6300 or a little bit more and get a 8350 in the future because for tf2 the 4100 might not get you the best fps. Though you can always try overclocking more if you feel safe and have a good cooler.
I'm running a Hyper 212, so I can probably OC this to 4.6 or 4.8, the point is that if TF2 only utilizes 2 cores, shouldn't a 4 core CPU @ 4.2 outdo an 8 core CPU @ 3.5?

Yes a 4.2 quad would get higher fps than a 3.5 8 core in this game. Your current CPU is bulldozer based, the ones he suggested are piledriver based which brought slighty faster clock for clock speed(4GHz piledriver is faster than a 4GHz bulldozer).

If this is your main game though I wouldn't bother because the jump from bulldozer to piledriver still wont be anywhere close to what a newer i5 will get you.

Any reason why my results are so low? I feel like I'm doing something that I shouldn't be.

TF2 only uses two cores.

AMD cores are slow.

Ragdolls enabled stresses the cpu.

These are the reasons.

2639 frames 18.074 seconds 146.01 fps ( 6.85 ms/f) 6.381 fps variability

CPU and overclock: i7 920 @ 3.5 GHz (Hyperthreading is off so it's just 4 cores)
Graphics Card: GeForce GTX 460 stock

Driver version: 306.97 (any driver newer then this is broken in DX8)
dxlevel (default is 90): 81
Resolution: 1920x1080
Full-screen or windowed: Full
FPS configs enabled: Modified Chris high frames. 4xMSAA, 8xAnisotropic, texture shader and model detail high.
Shadows enabled/disabled: disabled

Additional notes: n/a

I'm building a new system soon and I'm disappointed with the scores that I see above. I was honestly expecting the ivy bridge chips to destroy this old system from 2008.
