Forum only Video i3 7100 vs Epic Fortnite!


Recommended Posts

Hey hey all today's video is a question from @Mightyunit and that question is "Can the i3 7100 still max out Fortnite for a rig I want to make for a friends kids to play Fortnite on?"

 

 

 

Above judge for yourself and if you want more videos like this ask the question and I will keep them coming.

These are not monetized or public and for the Forum and discord only, you are welcome to share them just please link to the forum instead of the video when sharing.

 

Happy to start making more of these but honestly they are not up to RHR quality so they're just a passion project to give back to our great RHR friends and followers 🙂

Wow thank you for taking the time and the effort to test and then make this video!!

I wonder what kind of frame rates one would get without a cpu bottleneck everything else being equal. I do NOT expect you to test this for me however I do wonder. I also wonder at what point does the stutter go away? I think I will have to test this my self somehow... Regardless It seems I should look for a quad core, likely AMD (likely cheaper than old 6th gen Intel i5's) so that my brother in law and his kids who want to game do not own a PC that is soon mothballed. 

 

Again thank you for your this video :)

No problem at all was a lot of fun to make.

 

The stutter seems to be mostly only in open spaces and like the cpu is just holding the rig back slightly, honestly a 5% oc may resolve this or even faster memory.

A low cost ryzen should have you solved and I will also test the similar hardware just different cpu on a few upcoming videos for reviewing other parts so it should fit in.

Re-sending fortnite to my review pool as it should be a good stutter and old/lower end cpu test.

Nice work! I expected it would be cpu limited in fortnite, but it is actually a bigger limiting factor than I expected...the gpu is dying for more to render. 

Fully agree, when I start the next video I may do a quick 1 minute of this same setup with a OCed 7100 and 3200 ram speed

Could be interesting to see the improvement.
 

I would also be curious to see older i5 vs newer i3 (something like sandy bridge/ivy bridge/ haswell era i5 vs the 7100).

Hey you yes you Shuddup 😛 you're stealing something already in the works haha jk

 

Yah that is a great idea and I think I still have a 2500 to toss against it, but I do have a 2500s for sure maybe I'll have some other good i5 that's not low power but even that would make a good comparison

Haha. Always good to know how the older stuff compares. Obviously newer is great, but older i5 boxes are pretty cheap now and should be fine for (I hate the term) esports type games. I would love this to confirmed though (weather proving me right or wrong). Budget builds, kids builds, etc.

    • Hello everyone, now I am choosing between several laptops, but maybe you can advise me something better my priorities: mostly just for home, for watching movies and YouTube, for some light games (a couple of times a month), and sometimes for work (mostly google drive, various marketing resources, nothing heavy) around 600 USD 15.6" or more Acer, Asus? Order on Amazon? Windows prefarable 256 SSD or more. I will leave links of those notebooks that I am thinking about now https://www.amazon.com/Acer-A515-44-R41B-Hexa-Core-Processor-Graphics/dp/B087N4ZRXV?ref_=Oct_s9_apbd_simh_hd_bw_b2N0e&pf_rd_r=61THRATEMWAKYQZB6J7M&pf_rd_p=121acd9e-769b-5530-ae68-5a92ebd704d6&pf_rd_s=merchandised-search-10&pf_rd_t=BROWSE&pf_rd_i=565108 https://www.amazon.com/Acer-A515-55-56VK-i5-1035G1-Fingerprint-Keyboard/dp/B087RTV311/ref=sr_1_10?dchild=1&qid=1613042065&rnid=13896617011&s=computers-intl-ship&sr=1-10 THANKS!   Cali employee monitoring software
    • Hopefully, everyone can get this card before the bots do. Full unboxing of the new Nvidia 3060 Ti Gaming X Trio from MSI below:  
    • Rest assured that no matter if you choose a mainstream Core i5, a high-end Core i7, or the enthusiast Core i9 that you will be getting a very good to excellent processor. All three offer a lot of performance without all that much upfront cost. It just is those who want to get the best, most optimal, option for their needs should put more time, thought, and effort into their decision. So do your homework. Think about what you actually do with your system. Then come to your own conclusions. Not what anyone, including us, tell you what you should be buying. Doing otherwise may result in a rather major disservice to yourself and your next system.   Read the full review below: https://www.realhardwarereviews.com/intel-core-i7-10700k-core-i5-10600k-review/
    • In summary, if you are looking for a good deal, do not need it to be ‘the fastest’ PCIe 3.0 drive going, and do not plan on hammering it with more than 50% of the free capacity at one time, the Silicon Power UD70 2TB is a good option at a great price. Just understand the target demographics it was built for and the compromises required to hit its low asking price before you track one down.   Read the full review below:  https://www.realhardwarereviews.com/silicon-power-ud70-2tb-review/
