I want to upgrade my GPU instead of buying a new console, but my CPU might...

BF4 CPU performance isn't heavily related to clockspeed, you will get 60fps average, but if you overclock it will be a little steadier.

As for GPU performance you would really need a 7970 to get an average 60fps on ultra but you would be as well going for high settings and a 7950.

We have yet to see what the retail version will perform like on PC and what other next gen games are like to try to put off upgrading till after Christmas to see what the next gen games really need and you will get much better discounts too.

Your setup will run BF4 decently, but if you want an improvement, just upgrade the video card, your CPU is fine.
Ignore Mangorush, he trollin'.


His CPU is fine? Lmao..yea, nice advice there, broski. Don't listen to him, TC. You're going to also need to replace that CPU as well because 2.8ghz isn't going to cut unless you don't mind your fps being all over the place that will cause your game to feel stuttery.


Guess PS4 won't cut it either with less than 2ghz.
1.6 was it?


The funny thing is, developers make sure they optimize their game on it to keep it from stuttering unlike the mess that's going on in the PC version right now, hows that working out for ya, snookie?

People still not understanding that Processors have advanced beyond performance based on clock rate. What is this 2004?

And that's why BF4 on PS4 has framerate problems, while on PC it runs fine?

Ps4 - 399.99
7970 - 299.99

The decision should be simple.

Oh, you thought they made this game for you? You clearly bought the wrong game.

The PS4 CPU is basically a notebook processor. I think he'll be fine.


and it's gpu is a laptop gpu.

Gamefaqs game rating system : 10 = Best Game Ever. 8-9. Crushing dissapointment. Below 8 :Total Garbage. This is getting ridiculous. people agreeing so far 105

The 2300 is a good gaming chip, with a new GPU you'll handle BF4 just fine @1080p.

Stop recommending the 7970. Especially if he plans on playing Battlefield 4. If the "Mantle" really exists, he'll most certainly want that.
