After upgrading from a AMD athlon 64fx x2 4200+ to the 6000+ witch is a 1.6ghz CPU power increase I expected a larger FPS gain in the games I play & performance overall, I have to say I did not notice as much as I thought I would.
I get the same frame rate as my dad who has the same processor I used to have ( 1.6ghz slower ) in every other way our computers are identical. I am wondering what is going on, So doing some investigations I have learned about RAM speed, Is my mhz of my ram bottlenecking my CPU ? My ram is DDR2 400mhz I have 4gb ( windows 7 32 bit )
I opened up speccy & Watched my core speed & noticed I get huge drop spikes, I am wondering what this is from ? Also this processor got put in by the shop I bought it from who did the swap, Is there something in bios when booting up the PC I need to change to get full advantage of the processor here or whats going on ?
Any help is greatly appreciated ! Thanks in advance guys. I really want to get the most out of this aging rig as possible & I thought a 1.6ghz CPU increase would help more than it did maybe you all can help me I really hope so, Here are some screen caps.
