Let me tell you something about a weird experience i had on my p.c. last wkend... I'm running a xeon x5650 coupled with a 1050ti for the " lighter " games and a 1060 for lets say a total war warhammer. Last wkend i tried to run a rts from another developer but whatever i tried i couldn't let it run fluent ... to make a long story short ... the solution turned out to be for me to increase my idle load values, usually around 1,5 ghz to atleast 2,4 ghz which was exactly the required value that was stated by the developer to make the game run exactly as i wanted it to be .... This in its self started a wild search where i suddenly started with comparing the cpu requirements given by the developers.. again to make a long story short.. most modern games ask of you to have a cpu with a baseline frequency of atleast 3,5 ghz , my xeon's baseline frequency is 2,1 ghz .... Does this mean that i should always increase xeon with and o.c. of 1,4 ghz to get the most out of every game?
My fear is that most games would run but limit calculations that are precisily the calculations any serious gamer woulnd't want lacking or does my xeon provide another option because of it being a 12 treaded machine?
