Does Metro Exodus require a 8 core cpu

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I currently have an i5 8400 and a vega 56 with 16gb of ram.  I recently spent 79.99 on ac odyssey and couldnt even keep it at a consistent 50fps at low settings mostly due to my 6 core cpu.  I want to buy metro exodus but I dont want to waste money on something I cant play so do you think a 6 core cpu could rum this game at a consistent 60fps on high settings?

the CPU is pinned at 100% or something?

I easily get 60+ FPS on 8600k+GTX1080 using high settings.

Yeh and the graphics card is at like a 70% its a terribly optimized game.

u have a pretty balanced system...its just that the game still demands more...id upgrade the cpu...but since the gpu is also at 70% it might not make it better to the degree that u expected

Seems like it wants at least a high clocked 6 core 6 thread Coffee Lake, but I think a HT 6 core will do as well. I havent played it with my laptop though


Studying abroad, ditched the crappy laptop for a do-all laptop double. Dried factory CPU paste, long memory timings, cooler cools the inductors but not the mosfets and an inch of unused internal space on both left and right

Model: HP Omen 17 17-an110ca CPU: i7-8750H (0.125V core & cache, 50mV system agent undervolt) GPU: GTX 1060 6GB Mobile (1696MHz 0.812V ~ 1860MHz 0.95V) RAM: 12GB DDR4-2666 19-19-19-43 2T Storage: 128GB Toshiba NVMe SSD (KBG30ZMV128G) + 1TB Seagate 7200RPM 2.5" HDD (ST1000LM049-2GH172) Monitor: 1080p 120Hz IPS G-sync

 

The best thing to do is reading the clock speed that doesnt end in a pair of zeros. Software voltage readings are wrong if your motherboard's not a high end model

CPU: i7-2600K 4493MHz (multiplier: 43x) 1.35V (software) --> 1.4V at the back of the socket Motherboard: Asrock Z77 Extreme4 (BCLK: 104.5MHz) CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-D15 RAM: Adata XPG 2x8GB DDR3 (XMP: 10-11-11-30 2T 2133MHz, custom: 10-11-10-30 1T 2229MHz) GPU: Asus GTX 1070 Dual SSD: Samsung 840 Pro 256GB (main boot drive), Transcend SSD370 128GB PSU: Seasonic X-660 80+ Gold Case: Antec P110 Silent, 5 intakes 1 exhaust Monitor: AOC G2460PF 1080p 144Hz (OC'd 150Hz) TN Keyboard: Logitech G610 Orion (Cherry MX Blue) with SteelSeries Apex M260 keycaps Mouse: BenQ Zowie FK1

 

Results: Cinebench R15 Single thread:159 Multi-thread: 770 (thx Meltdown Spectre patch) Super Pi (v1.5 from Techpowerup, PI value output) 16K: 0.11s 1M: 8.4s 32M: 7m 45.9s

Well 4 cores and 8 thread CPU is plenty for any game.  What is the usage of the CPU in Metro ?  Also perhaps your using vsync which would make sense it is only using 70 percent of GPU power.  Try turning vsync off and see if you get close to 100 percent GPU usage.  Also if the CPU isn't taxed to 100 percent, then you should be fine.  Only bummer is you can't overclock the 8400.  sighs
