Single Core vs Multi-Core Performance in AoC

Hey all,

I am currently pricing out my next build an I'm curious as to how AoC caters to the various processors.

Now, I've priced out a couple different options for builds:

<a href="https://pcpartpicker.com/list/CghFhq" target="_blank">Ryzen 5 1600</a>

<a href="https://pcpartpicker.com/list/hcnZKZ" target="_blank">Ryzen 7 1700</a>

<a href="https://pcpartpicker.com/list/JG9Q9W" target="_blank">Intel i7 7700k</a>

My budget is right around $2500. I'm looking to game at 1440p, average greater than 100fps @ 144hz. I've seen several videos on youtube showcasing the differences in FPS performance between the various processors and some games highly favor single core performance with higher clock rates, while other games it doesn't really matter with a ~5 FPS difference in mins/maxes.

With AoC still in development and with the rise in creasing cores/threads in processors, I'm curious what will be favored. I'm not sure if this can be answered at this time but and insight would be helpful. Currently I play mainly Blizzard games such as HoTS and Overwatch which there wasn't much difference in performance single-core vs multi-core. But if you look at GTA V and Tomb Raider, you will see that they favor single-core with higher clock rates.

    The only info I know is that the Devs said that the game is being made to run on mid-range machines up to six years old. Not enough info yet if you looking for a rig that will play the game at peak performance as far as I am aware.
  • Single core gaming is going to phase out.

    4 core now is pretty much minimum specs.

    the R5 1600 is the best bang for buck right now. allround performer. i5s are dead at intels stubborn prices.

    The 1700 is the best value multithread productivity cpu that can game.

    the i7 7700K is only relevent for high 120hz+ refresh rates gaming* specific, However with Intel now recomending users not to Overclock 'K' scu because of thermal spike issues is just ridiculous.

    If I didn't have a 6700K myself, I would personally get the R5 1600 and use the $ saved for other hardware upgrades, GPU/Monitor/SSD or the like.

    The GPU is still the most important factor for gaming.
  • You will never have 100+ fps in a crowded area full of players. Not even the best computers can in a mmo game.
