I don't think anyone should, nor is that suggested in the article (I think)... rather it's interesting and educational for PC gamers how the latest hardware performs, so if you're building new or upgrading your system, you get to know more information about performance, and perhaps just as importantly, know if your current system is fine and you can skip a cycle.Who will invest all that money in hardware for a game with 74% negative reviews on Steam?
Different architectures. 11th gen has ~20% higher IPC, but higher latency. In most games an oced 10600k is equal or faster than the 11600k, but on stock the 11600k has the advantage most of the timeCan someone tell me how the 10600k and 11600k have a 10-20% performance difference?
Arent they basically the same chip?
10th gen has 200mhs higher base and 100mhz lower turbo. Is the 11th gen actually a faster processor core vs core?
I know there are different architectures. But thats some significant jumps the last 3 years.Different architectures. 11th gen has ~20% higher IPC, but higher latency. In most games an oced 10600k is equal or faster than the 11600k, but on stock the 11600k has the advantage most of the time
Well gaming performance in particular though doesn't scale that much with IPC but moreson with cache and memory speeds / latency. That's why the 10th gen is / can be faster than the 11th gen. You can run 4400c16 ram speeds on 10th gen with gear 1, but on the 11600k you can only run 3333c12 or something along those lines.I know there are different architectures.

typically the 10-20% just was more to do with their ability to push frequency increases than processing power.
BF2042 has bigger maps, double the player count, higher polygon count, destruction, physics, explosions with shockwaves, higher quality volumetric smoke, AI etc.I'm still using a 5930K overclocked to 4.5Ghz and it really struggles with this game. It was great on BF1, noticed a performance hit with BFV, but now with BF2042 it really struggles, especially on 128 player maps it's pretty much unplayable. It kinda sucks how much of a performance difference there is between these games when BF1 still looks just as good as BFV and BF2042, if not better in a lot of ways and runs a lot smoother.
