will I notice a big performance gains going from i7-3770k to i7-7700k?

Recommended Posts

Currently running i7-3770k OC at 4.5GHz with HT ON. And GTX 1080 FTW 8GB and 32GB Ram. Would upgrading my CPU to i7-7700/8700 make a big difference to me in terms of performance in P3D v4.1?

I was thinking the same, have a I7 2600K @ 4.4ghz,  with a EVGA 580GTX, decided after a lot of reading that a new processor (plus motherboard, faster ram etc :blink:) was not "necessary" so I upgrade the gpu to a EVGA 1070GTX, it increase my frame rate by 50% in FSX and 20-30% in P3D v4 but also a lot more stable,locked at 30fps

I went from 3770 to 7700. 3770 ran locked at 30 frames averaged about 29, 7700 I OC'ed to 4.7 ghz and run unlimited average frames 48. 

3770 ran better with frames locked, turns out that 7700 runs best at unlimited. 3770 I had to run with AM (don't remember what it was) and the 7700 runs rather smooth with no AM.

*forgot to mention the 3770 ran a 960 TI 4 gig, and when I went to 7700 build, it is using a 1060 6 gig, so that accounts for some of the advance in fps.
