Huh, forgot about that one. And it was only a couple months ago that it was released. I had to look it up but it is a native PS5 game, even though it's just a minor remaster. Hence AVX2.
Haswell is almost 10 years old at this point.
Oh that may explain why I wanted to pull my eyes out, when I looked for help in a couple of situations in the game, that I was stuck. I found ps4 videos on youtube, that's why! xD I was playing on my good system at the time of course (12400f+3060ti,ultra).
Anyhoo, I used my 3060ti on the 2700k for quite a while and it was mostly fine. I even played Elex II on that configuration, from start to finish and while the cpu cried inside the cities, during gameplay it was ok. And whoever played Elex II, knows what I'm talking about! Sandy bridge tech launched in January 2011.....:O Still rocking though, so why exclude them, since they can get the job done for 60fps gaming? Especially the hyperthreaded ones.
I have a video of Guardians of the Galaxy, runinng on 2500K+3060ti, on a specific location with a fight, that was also tested by Digital Foundry, and the 4/4 2500k, has equal frame drops, as the PS5 in performance mode! BUT with higher settings (+RT) AND it was also recording while playing. Yeah these cpus were epic and if it wasn't for the pci 2.0 bus, they would be even more epic.
