Who Says an AMD FX8350 with a GTX 970 Can’t Handle Battlefront II?

Recommended Posts

Some folks out there seem to think the aging FX 8350 and GTX 970 can’t handle games such as Battlefront 2, Battlefield 1, V, etc. To those people I say: You are wrong.

 

My 8350 & 970 can handle anything I throw at it, even Prepar3D. Check out the video below I made.

I'm not sure who says that... does anyone say that? The 8350 was a decent choice of processor back in the day because it's actually faired very well due to it's threads and relatively high clock, and newer games taking advantage of those cores. The 970 is ok, but the 8350 won't bottleneck it, even my rx580 isn't bottlenecked by the 8350 but it's probably getting close.

Yea, The FX 8s are still holding up in most games. If you get ryzen the difference will be massive, especially in single threaded games like BORDERLANDS, etc. I am living proof of the difference. Based on what I have witnessed each ryzen core is = to 2+ FX cores combined and everything is so much quicker to execute. Even things as simple as turning feels a lot more responsive on ryzen. I went from using the fx8320 to the r5 2600X/ r7 2700. I wasn't expecting a big difference, but I was wrong.....very wrong. The r7 2700 only has a 65 watt TDP and it smokes my 8320 in any way, shape. or form. Try running destiny 2 on anything over med settings with an FX cpu and tell me how it turns out. I still think FX 8s are good CPUs, but in some games they hold back mid range GPUs like the 1060. My proof is my youtube channel.

The only reason that I'm holding out as long as possible for Ryzen is that it's a whole platform upgrade, mobo, ram, cpu, it won't be cheap.
