    You are correct about detail level of the competitions your team is entered. Still, it's only one league out of 10/20/30/xy you select. Speed difference between running default/full detail is more than double from my experience. You get all cores to work, still processing speed is halved. You do get most accurate results, but aren't the default ones quite OK?

    I wish we had more i7 920 results, as the other one is half minute slower.

    What mostly interests me is difference between 2600K and 2500K at the same clocks, and it's quite a lot, around or even more than half a minute (because of H/T?).

    There is always the forgotten factor of how well maintained people keep their OS & background programmes & as you say a larger sample of results for each processor would be preferable as the two results so far for the 920 might just represent the max upper & lower ends of the performance scale.

    I still hope we will get to see what 5GHz+ 2600K is capable of.

    The file has disappeared....? I wanted to see if my i3 could stumble over any of your times.

    There is an i3 in the list already, which has finished around the 5 minutes mark. As you can see, there isn't that much of a difference amongst newer processors, as the text interval isn't that taxing to begin with for new machines and it's the full detail match simulation that benefits from faster processor architectures AND multiple cores alike. So much so that a benchmark graph looks more akin to application software rather than your typical game, where fast dual cores such as the i3 can often downright outperform quad cores of the previous generation, such as Phenom II X4 and Core 2 Quad. Not the case here. Usually lower speced mobile chips are another matter altogether, though.

    The argument against that and a question you have to ask yourself is of course: Who does really simulate a bigger number of leagues and competitions, each one, even, in their save in full detail? If you do, however, this benchmark will tell you only so much how FM will perform on your machine. In this save, even a handily spec'ed Core 2 Duo can do okayish. Not the case if you set it up differently. In this case, any older dual core processor (Core 2 Duo, Athlon X2, Athlon II X2) will finish way behind anything else. And an i3, which I own myself, will certainly be no equal to a much more expensive i5 clocked at the same speed, as is the case here*.

    * As I personally simulate only a number of competitions loaded in full detail, this was quite useful to see though. It seems upgrading to an i5 will only take me so far. :-)

    I was interested to see how this little fellow from my HTPC will do.

    Ah man I thought my laptop would have been much faster

    Any suggestions to make my laptop run fm quicker.

    Sorry to bump this, but I thought it was an interesting thread and I wanted to check out my new PC

    Good bump, Scribe. I'm thinking of buying a desktop to coincide with the new game because I'm frustrated by the speed of my Vaio and the 2 stars my graphics card gets on FM12 (1GB ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4650).

    CPU: Intel® Core™ 2 Duo P8700
    CPU Frequency: 2.53GHz
    RAM: 4GB DDR2 SDRAM/800MHz

    Sorry for bumping this but is there a similar thread like this for FM 13?

    New link - http://depositfiles.com/files/ac5z7asgk . For some reason I can't update link in post 1.
    If there is someone with new gen CPUs still playing FM12, I'd like to add those results.

    edit, this is for a Clevo Custom built laptop so spec is mobile based. No need to O/C the the Cpu due to quad cores. Bit paranoid fiddlig with the oc so will leave as is

    I am on H61 chipset atm, when I get Z77 mobo I will try with OC. This exact specimen is capable of 5,2 GHz. Can't wait.

    CPU: Intel Core I7 3820
    CPU Frequency: 3600 MHz
    RAM: 8GB 1666 MHz (3.5GB due to 32-bit OS)
    OS: Win Vista
    Time: 5 min 11 sec

    Just had an upgrade of my computer and was curious to see how much different it would be from my previous setup.

    Had a Core 2 Quad Q6700 before, OC'd to 3340MHZ, and 8GB 800MHz on a Win 7 64-bit.
    That got the time 8 min 52 sec.

    My newer system is faster but i thought it would be a bit better than that time.
    Ah, well. It's definitely a difference and i'm happy with that.

    Off the top of my head that's something like 42% quicker in a weeks worth of processing, over the long run thy will be a significant difference.

    Might be even quicker with a 64-bit OS.

    That is true. Had to order a new Windows 7 license and i'm waiting for that to show itself in the mailbox. Well....the dvd of course ;)
    That is 64-bit so there should be a tiny improvement there as well.

    Will definitely be a very significant difference in the long run.

    I got a 6 years old machine, so I'm afraid if i test it will take an eternity, the world collapsed and Mars overshadowed earth during the whole process ;p

    Probably worth bumping this, just in case anybody is looking for a new machine this year...

    Once FM14 is released, expect new version of this benchmark.

    Had anyone got i7 4770k with 8GB Ram?

    I am sure it will beat 3 mins 19 Seconds!
