Has the Moore law failed us? Why I'm still able to play most games with an fx and a radeon 7970? It's a 7 years old rig ffs. Imagine trying to play anything in 2006 with a 500 mhz slot a and a rage 128 pro.

Nah, a 2500K and a 780ti will still run pretty much anything on medium/high. Development has just slowed down.

>> No.71349163

Mostly because of console gaming. Since most games are multiplat a PC that mostly matches consoles will be in the clear.
Hell, even PC game development hasn't made that many strides this console generation. I built my PC for about 600 bucks in October of 2013 and while I have to switch to low settings in newer Total War games or Pathologic 2, I still usually get 60fps.

console gaming i can deal with because eventually consoles with up their graphics to match customer demands for more graphics but lootbox crap will downgrade future games hardcore because devs need to expand their player base as much as possible even to those who are still using optiplexes for that paypig/whale bux.

Moore's law slowed down. Not that that's a bad thing, of course. Right now we're at a fairly good point, where development is slow to the point where you don't have to get a new system every 3 years, but also fast enough to the point where there's a reason to buy the top end.

A lot of people misrepresent Moore's law.
It was just an observtion about the number of transistors in a processor doubling every 18 months. Not performance, not clock speed.
They got around limitations by adding more cores, but not everything utilizes multiple cores well.

>> No.71351237

Hopefully now that there seems to be plateau of what games can do technically they get back to making games that are actually fun and well written. I don't see the importance of pushing hardware beyond what it is now. PBR shading as the new standard makes games look great. Raytracing might make it look better but after that how good does it have to get? Realism isn't a selling point for most games and a bigger army of artists and voice actors for every triple-a game just means SSDs better become more affordable as game data is 90% texture and audio files.

I did with inspectre, but I didn't really notice any change in performance with my 2500k, I tested with Final Fantasy XV, a pretty CPU heavy game and it seemed the same with and without, I guess these patches affect workstations more.

Don't know if the patches would affect the anon with the i3 8100 more, but I think an i3 8100 is probably better than my 2500k.

Is upgrading from an FX 6300 to a FX 8350 worth it?

Thinking to do that while saving money to get an ryzen 4xxx in the future.

>> No.71351659

An FX-8350 is 4GHz base clock straight out of the box, but it doesn't really mean anything, the ipc of new chips is awesome so I wouldn't worry about the clocks speed.

The extra module the 8350 has with two cores is absolutely worth it if you want to stay on FX, and you can get it with a nice wraith cooler new in box for $75, set the CPU vcore to at least 1.38125v, crank the bus speed to 210 MHz, and you've got a little beast.
