Anyone Moved On To Ddr4 Yet?

I am and will be DDR4 by June. Just curious to see if there is anyone else here that has or is doing the same.

Yes, DDR4, 5820k here. It's a shame nothing but rendering is currently taking advantage of my CPU :( No games can push it past 30-50% usage.

Have you tried Medieval Simulator? I hear nothing on the market can render the physics in realtime. Both for sheer complexity and a good bit of 'needs to get optimized' alpha status.

Was that targeted at me? Could you post me a link to it?

If it is in "alpha" then it's not Worth it to try it "just to max out my system" if it's not optimized yet.

But running Virtual machines, while playing EVE online, Mortal Online and Path of exile (+ like 50 browser tabs in chrome) at the same time still doesn't use more than 30-50% of the CPU capacity.

5820K and DDR4 is the way to go for x99 , rest is too overpriced for very little performance incrase, There is literally %1 differance between overclocked 5930 an 5820.

 

However if your aim is to make a pc that can render and play games 5960K is a good decision.

*Only applicable if you're overclocking the 5960x

5820k is still a BEAST at both rendering and gaming (when oc'ed)

Yes it is, thats what i personally use. But lets be honest. Its still nowhere near 5960k. And i dont mind it, considering it costs 3x more

I find all PC upgrades are so marginal these days that it is just not worth it. I remember throwing thousands on a new PC every year or so. Just to keep up with new games. Now? $800 will buy you max settings for 2-3 years.

 

More money for ale and whores.

Unless you are doing rendering or running some high end software....vms.....or a server for most end users DDR4 doesn't really offer much.

 

Look even at benchmarks on ddr3 with Haswell......ddr3 1600 vs 2400 offers like 1-4% at most improvement.....tighter cas latency helped more then raw bandwidth.

 

 

Until price of DDR4 comes down its not worth the price premium unless you pc is used for professional....not just gaming reasons.

It will matter quite alot if you are ramdisking.

 

BUT

 

DDR4 is pointless for gaming, well DDR4 itself is pointless. However x99 architechture and haswell CPU's ? They matter alot. I can run PhysX on borderlands pre-sequel easly on my CPU on max settings.

 

I made a java program, a very tasking one, it takes around 30 munites for computer to complete the job. With haswell CPU i can run same program 12 times and it will still finish the job at 30 munites.

True but the majority of casual pc gamers just use their pcs instead of consoles.....so games, FB, porn, web...etc......there's only a small percentage that are huge power users.......ie can build there own....and use it to its full potential. It's like someone building a x99 build and they only play wow 1080p , and them complaining about their frames....when they already got a Titan card and them moving to new Titan will fix it. ( RL example of a friend who buys way way way more hardware then he needs....yet never even oc'ed his cup....or set his ram timings properly....yet alone how to optimize his bios and windows and graphic setting for max/best performance.) yes one extreme I know......but a lot of people I've built pc for who used to be primarily console gamers....just don't have that tech nerd instinct to power use their system....guess them not growing up in a dos world can't blame em consoles dumbed them down.

 

Also depending on the game......1440P or lower a ddr3 haswell 4790k can match or slightly beat 5820+ x99 why ....x99 really for 4k higher (for gaming...actual "work" is different. It's not till 4k multi-GPU that the extra pcie lanes you get in x99 platform shine.

There are only 8 pcie lines between both processors, even when they "shine" it will only matter 1-2 fps

 

It truly depends on how much cache/threads a game can use, if a game can truly utilize haswell, which is what im expecting in future, there will be very big differance between 4790K and 5820K (nearly double cache , 2 extra cores(+4threads)).

 

BTW i dont really think many people care about ram timings at all.
