The one thing I learned over the years is if you don't plan on upgrading every 2~3 years buy the best thing with the most "future proof" shit.

Everyone was like when will you ever need 4 cores, nothing uses 4 cores. Don't buy the Q6600 it's a waste of money, buy a E6700 that has better game performance!

>>69502501
SSE 4.1, which has caused a lot of compatibility issues with Phenom CPUs down the years. A lot of games had to be hurredly patched after launch because they needed SSE 4.1 and Phenom owners couldn't run them. Metal Gear Solid V, for example. It's starting to happen with AVX now too.

>> No.69502818

>>69502553
so, this is all the fuzz? A game where the developer didn't include any fallback method just like every sane s/w is built?
also MSGV gets 15fps on phenoms, as some users reported on steam when launching the game with this https://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/intel-software-development-emulator/
>hurredly patched after launch because they needed SSE 4.1
sse libraries do that automatically. you can choose to include older versions of SIMD inscructions.
The infamous icc jewish trick which crippled amd cpus, forced amd cpus to run FLOPs with legacy x87 instructions, while using SIMD on intel CPUs.
This is a non-issue, just a developer flop.
e.g. cryengine got optional SSE4 somewhere around 2008 and 2009
you might need to read about SSE5 and the avx/sse versions AMD uses like FMA instructions and XOP.

>also MSGV gets 15fps on phenoms
Post-patch MGSV gets a solid 60fps (its framerate cap) with an overclocked Phenom II. I know because I played it my 1090T.

As for the rest of your rambling, I don't give a shit. The issue has come up numerous times over the years, not just with MGSV. It's been an issue, whether your fucked up brain can parse that or not. Nobody cares about the how or why of it. Your theoretical dream reality where all software conforms to your standards takes a backseat to the actual reality that we live in.

My 2500k died recently, it served me well for so many years. Though I think the mobo might be fine, just the cpu light goes on. Kind of not worth trying to find another though prob just gonna save for a new thing instead. Really was one of the best chips I ever had though in my opinion.

I work for a living and that's how I know what we, programmers, deal with SIMD instructions.

pre-patch mgsv had 15fps on users with phenom x6 as reported by those users in steam.
Not supporting h/w is a deliberate move.
On the s/w dev side, it's just some flags, or how several studios do it, they deliver 2 executables.
I wonder why did you mention it as an issue and blamed it on phenom, when they "fixed" msgv in the end.
SSE is not a dead IS and AVX or SSE4 are not a one way road in SIMD. You can do the same job even with legacy x87 instructions.
Keep blaming h/w for incompetent s/w development.

Still running on a 3930k and feel no need to upgrade for mainly development tasks and some gaming. Looking at benchmarks of the latest CPUs I don't think I'm missing much except some instruction sets like AVX2.

I honestly don't see how the average gamer/power user needs much more than this. Obviously single core performance is most important to games, but it really isn't worth having to buy new DDR4 ram and another stupid socket. It seems like Intel is prioritizing GPU compute now anyways in hopes of capturing more parallel workloads.

If I have a compute intensive workload, I'd rather offload it to server farms that are far more stable and scalable.

I’m running a 2600k now (at stock) is there any reason for me to upgrade? I guess if I want to upgrade other parts though I’m gonna need to upgrade the mobo/cpu. What’s a modern equiv of the 2600k? I haven’t kept up

I hope you didn't pay more than like $350 for cpu+ram+mobo when all you got is 6 threads. It wasn't enough for some applications and games on release date, let alone to expect it to age better than the 2500k did.

>>69510499
Dang, didn't notice that. Someone making that little money should be looking at something more budget.

>>69504893
9700k is the only CPU which makes sense in their lineup. But it's also too expensive.

>>69503687
You still do because of the security updates. Massively crippled it, especially the HT. Before the updates, yeah it was fine.

Same. People convinced me the $100 extra wasn't worth it and that technology progresses so fast that it'll be obsolete by the time HT was used.

From 2014 onward with my 2500k was suffering for my heavy usage. If I had a 2600k, the wait for Zen would have been much easier to endure.
I even had decent 1866mhz RAM, and 16Gb of it, and everything. A high end model of 7970. That 2500k held back my system so hard.

8 threads has been minimum for 5-6 years if you want a more stutter free experience.
8c/8t or 6c/12t is pretty much the minimum now.

2500k with a 1080, the cpu is showing its age. Should I wait for the 3700x or just get a 2700x now?

>> No.69528678

A 2700X is enough for a 1080 even at 1080p. But you may as well wait if you can wait 4-5 more months.

Threads are not important. 6 normal cores are better than 4c/8t.

Rocking a [email protected] in my main rig. Already had the upgrade parts in the shopping cart when I realised that I'm spending about $900 for CPU/Mobo/RAM just for the sake of upgrading. Still don't need the extra speed to this day.
Bought myself a new e-guitar for that money and couldn't be happier.
