Look like Phenom X4 has same memory controller problems as Athlon 64 X2. I cant run my memory controller at full speed 400MHz, it caused memory management error everytime in Vista but I prevented by low it to 333MHz.

Intel 45nm quad core is the only best choice to play Crysis.

q6600 OC'ed, seems like a good choice then ;)

Has anyone even seen more than 50% total load on a quadcore for crysis?

At resolutions of 1920x1200 any of those will play the game basically the same due to the GPU limitation. That review does not indicate what resolution was tested...at least I could not see it.

I have seen more than 50% load on all four cores many times in Stranglehold not so in Crysis SP demo. I have checked that in real-time via G15 LCD and also through CPU usage history log. UE3 engine liberally takes use of all four cores.


Wow they needed 1.52 Vcore for Phenom to hit 3GHz? At the same time intel is getting better and better in power consumption/generated heat.

I thought my G0 was the COOL proc but now the Penryn redefines the term "cool processor" puts the G0 Kentsfields to shame then LOLZ at Phenom.

That 1.52 Vcore alone tells a lot of story...

I was thinking it may be possible, but you'd have to load some tornadoes and throw down a few more buildings so there is a steady stream of debris.

Nope not me. I would say my average is 30% totaly load. Typically it's ~50% on 1 core, and 25-40% on the other three. So over all like 30%-40%. At higher resolutions the GPU is definately the limiting factor.

Yeah and if you read some of those recent QX9650 reviews I linked in another thread you'll see almost all reviewers hit 4.0GHz or greater on air with them with little trouble.

Not a slight difference between dual & quad core .. what a shame :headexplode:

Seeing as I game at 1920 x 1200 I am ready for the 9x series already :p Although I bet it would help if Crysis (at least the demo) used my Quad core more effectivly.
