How big of a performance increase from 1090T OC to 4670k OC?

As the title states I'm considering upgrading to a 4670k soon. But, before I do I'd like to know if it is a worth wild upgrade. I mainly use my computer for gaming and browsing. I don't stream and I don't often use programs for encoding and such other than the occasional MKV to MP4/AVI other than that it's strictly for gaming and browsing.


Right now, I can run BF4 on all high settings with a minimum 38fps but if I switch to ultra I can see it go down to around 29fps with no AA on or post processing. But, with other games like Titan fall coming out which I plan on getting I wonder if my 1090T can keep up. I would like to wait and see what it can do but at the same time. With boxing day coming up in two days I would have to get the 4670k during this time as I can save a great amount of money.


So, as my question asks. Should I get the 4670K? Will it out preform my 1090T which is over clocked no problem? I want to see a pretty big different for $230 as well as upgrading my motherboard to the ASUS Hero. But, as I again just said I want to know I will be getting a significant increase in performance as well as making my computer future ready for next gen games and for possible new lines like broadwell from intel.

  1. the newer cpu is faster and you see it when you put in a high end gpu to match the cpu. I went from an odler 775 system to an ib cpu and the speed is night and day.

    you surely will see a significant difference in performance.

    as for the upgrade to broadwell thingy, i am not sure you will be to do that.

  3. So, I should be seeing a good FPS across all games from the 1090T to 4670k? I do plan on getting a good cooler and going to try to over clock the 4670k to 4.7ghz if I can which is why I'm getting the ASUS hero because I heard good things about that combo..
  4. that combo indeed is good.

    good luck :)
  5. Thanks for the replies. Do you guys have any good benchmarks for the 4670k the ones I have found are older and I wanna see what people have been getting FPS wise in some games so far..
  6. with which gpu do you want a benchmark????
  7. I have a Gigabyte GTX 670 2GB at the moment... may SLI or upgrade later.
