So I recently got my hands on a GTX 1080 Founders Edition (finally) and I hopped into Battlefield 4. Everything seemed fine until every now and then my fps drops below 60. It shouldnt be near 60fps with a GTX 1080 playing at 1920x1080p. Im thinking its my processor falling behind. Here are the specs:
Intel i5-4690k @ 3.5GHz (no overclock)
MSI Z97 PC-Mate Mobo
16GB G.Skill RipjawsX RAM (4x4)
500GB Samsung 850 EVO SSD
MSI GTX 1080 Founders Edition 8GB
I know my processor isnt terrible but its just starting to fall behind. Even when I had my GTX 970 I noticed some frame drops randomly on some maps, Siege of Shanghai to name one..
Since im most likely gonna be needing a new CPU, I wanna get one of those 6th gen Intel processors and with that, A new motherboard. Any ideas to which 6th gen intel cpu and motherboard to get? I dont wanna spend too much but I also dont want to cheap out!
My BF4 Settings are on the Ultra preset, VSYNC off, Res scale is at 100%
