4790k in 2019

 Share

I was looking at recommended specs for battlefield V and was shocked to see the ryzen 3 1300x listed next to the i7 4790k as an equivalent Cpu.

 

I was under the impression the 4790k was nearly equal to a ryzen 7 2700x for gaming, but if that spec is believed its not even equal to a ryzen 5 1600. I planned to keep my 4790k for another year but im wondering if its time to upgrade, or at least wait until the ryzen 3700x is out this spring(hopefully). 

 

Is the 4790k really lagging that far behind recent cpus?

4790k is faster than 1300x once overclocked, so it's not outdated. However since BF5 uses 6 cores well (I think scales with 8 cores as well) the 4790k does get beaten by Ryzen 5 2600.

nah, the 4790k is very much enough.

I've had mine since launch and don't plan to upgrade for at least a year or  (likely) two.

4790k is still a good CPUand another person here is looking for one if you don't want it but the ryzens all have more cores is why they claim to be better but you cant use most of their cores in games so they are pointless unless you can use them and your overclocked 4790k would murder a 2600x in gaming.

In battlefield V what would be an expected fps difference between a 4700k and 9700k at 1440p?

 

How about how smooth the game runs? I ask because its not a comparison i can easily find online since so many generations seperate the two and the game is so new. 

 

An upgrade would be very expensive since id also need a new mobo, ram and cpu cooler. I also dont like that the 9700k has no hyperthreading. Unlike my gpu i usually try to future proof a cpu as much as possible.

You are good for two more years I think. It's still a quite good CPU!

I watched a youtube video of a 2700X @ 4.2ghz running BF5 @ 4k. The CPU usage for all the cores was 25-30% My 3570K @ 4.5ghz would be close to 100% usage in BF5. Your 4790K @4.5-4.7ghz is certainly not outdated at all.

I should add I don't OC my 4790k, never have. I could but I have a Corsair h60 cooler which does fine keeping it cool at stock speeds but doesn't strike me as very capable for OC'ing. If im gonna go through the trouble of buying and installing a better cooler id probably just upgrade the CPU too.
