Thanks @Brother Ben you are a gent and a scholar.

Highly recommend all buying a new system to Benchmark here. 

Like Covid... we are all in this together!

No worries, and thanks

I hope the two threads can run in tandem and be mutually beneficial, we had 60 odd benchmarks last year, lets see if we can hit 100!!

I'll see if I can find time to run the tests tomorrow, at least the first 3.

Thanks mate, I think Benchmark D is only going to be vaible for a few users but there was a fair bit of demand so we'll see how it goes

I had to do this test with chrome open to use the stop watch as phone is broke don't know if that will make any difference, I doubt it would

I feel A, B and C was all quicker in FM20 by nearly half of what I have got in FM 21 I'm really surprised in test A, I only got 52 seconds in FM20, this time in FM21 my time in test A was 1.47 secs

This year its running in season 2 and it runs through transfer deadline day so longer times are to be expected, in FM20 the English window closed later.

This wasn't by design it was just co-incidence so sadly it's going to be hard to compare to last year in that regard.

Ah right it goes through transfer deadline day I didn't even think about that, so yeah that makes sense I prefer the benchmark like tbf.

It would be awesome if you could do benchmark D with this CPU! It's made for tasks like this and it would really help to see the benefits of such a good CPU:)

I think I'm gonna have to bite the bullet and do it on my old dog of a laptop just for the sake of comparison

impressive! I am looking forward to compare it with my 3950x. It should be a tight race due your better IPC and mine has more cores.

Interesting results. Although i'm left with a feeling that it could do better. Especially on Benchmark A.
What surprised me a little was that my GPU was going hard(-er) on intensive days. Nothing measured or anything but the fan activity went up significantly during high load, like Transfer Deadline Day.
Not sure why. Maybe someone more knowledgable could give some ideas if any.

But seeing @jckc221013jamie results it is pretty much in line with what i expected.

Seeing some of the other results I'm actually really pleased with our CPU's,  but at first when I done it when the test and there wasn't no ones scores yet so I was panicking thinking why is it taking so long haha lol.

I’ll see what time I have. For the FM20 ones I just done them one after another. Is it worth starting with D or are they meant to be done  in quick succession?

That was the first time I have really heard the fans going on this machine, and boy did they go, thought it was going to take off a few times. Fans weren't constant through the whole test, coming on and off when they felt like it. First time I would say it got hot at well, still nothing like other MacBooks of old, which can get scolding, but yes was hot. I nearly stopped it a few times because the fans really were blasting away. Won't be doing that again lol

Yeah, i think you're right.
I had only seen your results when i did the test.
I couldn't remember the numbers either, so i might have been fooled by the actual feeling of a personal idle minute. Had the same feeling about why the heck it was taking so long :D
I'm happy with it. Will be fun to see where we end up, after more people have done the benchmarks.

Great thread.   Although a generation behind, very similar to @roykela and @jckc221013jamie.  CPU spent most time around 4.3 Ghz, which I believe is what happens as turbo freq only applies to single core.  Time for a Ryzen!

To be fair the i7 8700k still packs a great punch it literally goes head to head with the i7 9700k in mostly everything. I want to upgrade as well but I'm just gonna hold out till ddr5 comes out on main stream, as what I have now is more than enough for the time being, but I am really keen on the new Ryzen 5000 series

Big thanks to everyone who has done the tests so far. 

After seeing that they were taking a little longer than last year and with the added benchmark I did worry that people would be put off but you've all proved me wrong  :thup:

Once we've got a few more results i'll start the spreadsheet and we can start to analyse the results in a little more detail

It's a shame to see results like this
In 2021, a game that can potentially be parallelized to all cores almost does not use them.
Apparently, everything is bad in the code and it won't be possible to fix it for a long time.

These attempts to measure the speed look pathetic, because this is the task of developers, not users.

I get what you are saying but if you look at the difference between your B & C results its shows that with your processor you can afford to have the luxury of turning on full detail for a really immersive experience.  Turning on full detail in previous versions used to be a processor killer and they have done a lot of work on this aspect

Not to pick on anyone in particular but if you look at @Felmet's results and the difference between B and C you'll see the difference multiple threads and cores can make

Big thanks to him by the way, that's a LOT of time to put aside for these benchmarks

Pretty happy with these results compared with those posted so far. The CPU temp did get insanely high for Benchmark D but when first putting my PC together the fans used to ramp up and down a little too much so I might've set their threasholds a little too high. In regular game play there is no issue and I do tend to load up a lot of leagues (in FM20 I had the whole of Europe loaded in)

Heyy would it be possible for you to run benchmark D? It would be great to see the difference to the 5900x:)

What do you mean "It's a shame to see results like this" ? Your own results or other peoples benchmark times?

I wouldn't say everything is bad in the code as this game seems to run faster than the previous versions and neither would I say it's pathetic that people would go through the effort to do these benchmarks. They're a tool for anyone looking to buy the game or upgrade their system - comparing our results for example, your CPU cost 3 times what mine does but your results aren't 3 times better ;)

The problem with PC gaming is that almost every PC is different. The game would never get released if SI were to optimise it for every machine that is out there.

You've said exactly what I wanted to, this is just a good tool for us to see how the game fares on various systems.  My laptop & desktop are both 4th gen Intel and with the results here I can make an informed choice about an upgrade

You've said exactly what I wanted to, this is just a good tool for us to see how the game fares on various systems.  My laptop & desktop are both 4th gen Intel and with the results here I can make an informed choice about an upgrade

Any time I get asked if a PC/ Laptop is good for FM I send them a link to the benchmark of buyers guide threads on here. I think the recommended specs that get listed everywhere are just to vague if you don't know much about computers, so why not have something that'll give you an idea of how fast (or slow) a new machine/ parts upgrade will make the game run. It can only be a positive.
