CPU Questions

Beet
 Share

I'm in the market to get a new cpu but I have a question relating to it . I'm using an intel core i5 6400 2.7GHz quadcore and my cpu is bottle-necking terribly . I see all cores jump to 100% usage just gaming on the lowest setting possible and even stay at a state of low performance at 10 FPS or even locking up and having a total freeze of FPS for a few seconds to just got right back to having another freeze of FPS all the while staying at 100% usage on all cores [I'm also on a GTX 1050TI overclocked and there seems to be no problem with the card in the slightest] my motherboard is a asus z170-e and looking to find out if I can support a 8th gen processor or if there might be some sort of underlying issue i'm not aware or that might fix the issue [the games I play are Destiny 2, Diablo 3, Division, Witcher 3, Ghost Recon Wildlands, Overwatch.] I notice the issue straight away with The Division, Diablo 3 and Wildlands

nah z170 is locked away from 8th and 9th gen and tops at 4 cores. Even then don't bother with this platform, upgrades that gives noticeable performance jump (the 4 core 8 thread i7s) need to cost below $120 to make sense which is rarely the case.

 

What you can try though is your memory, since it's still in the era of DDR4. How much RAM do you have?

Agreed. Skylake and Skylake + (6th and 7th gen) aren't old enough to be worth upgrading. The prices are still too high. 

 

I do find it odd that the OP says he has DDR3 though. Possibly super old mobo and DDR3L?

I have 8GB of DDR3

 

too bad, prepare for $400 upgrade makes more sense (cost taking US standard)
