    (980TI + I76700K) VS (980TI + I52500K)

    Hello,

    Is there a difference between these two configuration, I have a I5 2500K and 980TI. And I would buy a I7 6700K, or I7 6700?

    Thank you

    I did exactly that change and my average FPS climbed about 15-20%. What's more important is the higher min FPS, especially with more cars on track. That's with both CPUs clocked to 4.6GHz. I found it to be a good upgrade. P67/Z68 as a platform is getting old.

    ok THX, but 700€ for I76700K and mother board and DDR4 for 20% max ... A SLI 980ti is better ?? for the same price?

    Nope.

    Graphics can only move as fast as your CPU. If you use an I5 with SLI 980ti's, your processor will be the bottleneck. It would be much better to have the I7 with a single 980ti.

    Not really, because the cpu is probably already the bottleneck in your system. Another 980ti would not do much regarding fps, if your cpu is already hindering a single 980ti

    Project CARS is one of the very few games which actually benefit from a high end CPU. Most people would normally recommend an i5 for gaming but in this case an i7 would be a good upgrade if you require more frames. If there was a faster GPU that would be your better option but the 980ti is about as high end as it gets.

    As said above a second GPU would not really benefit without a CPU upgrade first.

    All of the above. I didn't want to exaggerate, but really just give you a realistic number. A platform upgrade these days won't give you "massive" steps. Yes it's quite expensive but then again every upgrade for only one game is. I upgraded my system not only for pCARS, but also for the new connectivity and what not.

    Here are the actual numbers. I can't remember the actual benchmark scene because it was September last year when i did that, but I normally bench with about 25 cars on track, starting in the pack and having medium clouds.

    2500k
    min 55
    avg 78
    max 108

    6700k
    min 72
    avg 97
    max 133

    Gain
    min 31%
    avg 24%
    max 23%

    So it's even more than 20% across the board Even 30% for the min FPS, and that's where it really matters. So see, that's how much a 2500k at 4.6GHz bottlenecks a 980Ti in pCARS.

    I give up...

    You don't know my ingame graphics settings, monitor resolution, track, car (and number of AI opponents), weather, time of day and so on... yeah you're probably right just keep your 2500K

    Edit: i really hope you are joking... And yeah 12 cars is only half of the amount I use to bench, the more cars, the more the i5 will bottleneck. But anyway, I'm not working for Intel so really couldn't care less, just wanted to be helpful.
