You could gain 15% SC and 75% MC with this, more with overclocking, but neither of us will not be so stupid that paying over 600 as performance improvement will still be quite small and mostly by 12 vs 8 threads: http://cpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Intel-Core-i7-8086K-vs-Intel-Core-i7-4790K/m516988vs2384 I used to have rule of upgrading, triple the computing power of component or at very minimum double or it is not worth of upgrade, kinda hard to do these days. Your GPU is quite even to pretty much average GPU Steam users have: http://gpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Nvidia-GTX-1060-6GB-vs-AMD-RX-480/3639vs3634 1080 is "83%" faster, whatever that is in practice. I still can get 100% GPU load in BeamNG though, just need to do a burnout, smoke is such heavy to render in this game It is really difficult and requires a lot of work to make map perform in this game, I'm really looking with interest of what you manage to squeeze out from this engine! Oh, also I kinda wanted to donate, but I can't do it monthly based, my medical is so high on some months that I'm going to negative already and if I decide to keep 1080 I will be dry for 6 months or even more (it kinda is nice though and would not need upgrading for 5 years or so). So I don't know if there is way to donate a tenner just now and then option?
