Gaming benchmarks are usually a great way to gauge a machine’s performance. However, I have had quite a bit of experience with i5 and i7 gaming laptops, and I find that i5 7600k has a higher frame rate than i7 7600k. I can’t say this is a major issue for me because I don’t do intense gaming. However, I do play some light-duty video games, and I am interested in learning.
So it looks like i5 7600k has a good gaming performance with a low power consumption, but i7 7600k has a higher frame rate and slightly more power consumption. So it depends on your personal needs.
I think it boils down to a matter of personal preference. Most of us agree that i7 7600k is very slow, while i5 7600k is pretty fast. I could also be wrong about this because I am not very familiar with i5 7600k’s gaming performance, but I think i5 7600k’s frame rate is better overall.
I don’t have a high-end gaming computer right now, but I was able to run a couple of games on my i7 7600k at 4.2GHz, and I did not notice any CPU bottlenecks. So I guess the point is that, for what I do, the choice is yours.
On to the benchmarks. I have two i5 7600k systems in my office. One is a desktop that I picked up at Costco for $200, and the other is a $500 gaming rig that I got for $100. They are running Linux Mint 19.1 on the desktop and Ubuntu 18.04.3 LTS (not LTS) on the gaming platform.
I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but most of the gaming benchmarks are done with gaming CPUs and not gaming GPUs. I’ve been doing gaming benchmarks with AMD CPUs and Nvidia GPUs since I started in the video game industry. The reason is that most of the computer manufacturers have a certain minimum speed that they want to hit in their product line. Some things like CPU clockspeed and GPU clock speed don’t really matter anymore. You just need to get the highest clock speed possible for your CPU.
This is why most of the gaming benchmarks are done with gaming CPUs and not gaming GPUs. Because you dont want to look back at the benchmarks with a feeling of disappointment because you didnt hit the target. You can do a few more benchmarks and see how it compares to other brands and brands at the same price. Then come back to it after you’ve gotten it and see how you did compared to others.
One interesting thing is that you can compare the clockspeed of all the brands that are out there. For example, a brand of gaming GPUs usually has a higher clock-speed than a gaming CPU, so you can compare the speeds of the two.
A lot of the time, I’ve not played games before but have to admit, playing games is better than sitting still and not being able to play them. At this point, I don’t feel that I have to play games to keep up with my friends. I play games when I’m not constantly being on time, but when I’m playing a game I’ve never been on and I don’t always know when I’m looking at the clock.
That said, I think that it is a good idea to get a little more comfortable with how you are using your CPU and GPU. They are very fast, but you have to push the bounds of what they can do. I also believe in getting used to the idea that your system is going to be slower. Ive never owned a computer that was faster than my own. I do however, keep track of the clockspeed of my gaming rigs.
