    I guess geometry 3d makes the GPU work twice as hard, but what is the effect on CPU usage?

    This information may help me in trying to figure out if it’ll be worth it to upgrade my CPU from an i5-2310. Unfortunately none of the new Ryzens even match old Intel CPU’s single thread performance which I think is what I need to look for. :/


    CPU performance is also affected since for one vorpX has to do more work and also many calls to the DiretX API are doubled, which can be quite costly CPU wise. High single thread performance is what’s most important here. If it doesn’t blow your budget, I would recommend to go for a quad core i7. High single thread performance combined with the i7’s HyperThreading for 8 virtual threads is probably the best you can get for vorpX (and gaming in general).
