Best Processors for 4K Gaming and Editing 2016

I don't want to keep you waiting for and jumping straight into recommended list.


Best 4K processor

The findings are odd and linear. The best processors for 4k capable gaming are Intel i7 6700k and Intel i5 6600k. Anything below is not recommended. Of these let's check how each one stacks up against each other.

Best CPU for 4k under $350 and lower

Intel i7 6700k
The new iteration is out and is Intel 6800k.So it's going to be a skylake vs. Broadwell -E. But 6800k is not worth its weight and gold for gamers. And you don't even get bragging rights. The differencebetween fps of these two @4k is about 2-3 fps. So the Intel i7 6700k is the reasonable choice here. And you get 4GHZ speed just out of the box.

Best CPU for 4k under $250 and lower

Intel i5 6600k is the next logical choice. Not because of $100 less price compared to i7 6700k but
 the difference between i7 6700k and i5 6600k is marginal (5%) in the game. The extra $100 in
 6700k will give your more headroom and is more future proof (no upgrade needed for next 4-5 years).
I can't recommend anything else at this moment. These are the best cards you should get for your budget if you are going for 4K gaming, Streaming and HTPC.

4K Gaming HTPC Series: 4K for Everyone



Whats's this series?
We can no longer ignore the fact that 4K (3,840 x 2,160) resolution is mainstream. Heck, even 8k is coming into existence now. In this series, we are choosing the best components for your 4K gaming and HTPC need. Note: - This is is not a 4K PC build but a full guide on the best parts for your 4k PC build.

Who's for this series? 

It's for me. lol. maybe you can have a peek at it! nah , it's for everyone! We are going to do the 'reasearchgate' and going to find the best of the best components for your 4k PC. Instead of looking all over the internet, we are going to compile necessary parts to hook up like the best Processors, GPU, PSU, and monitor for every budget and maybe TV's later on the road. So you can find all at one place. And it's easy to update later. I'm dedicating some serious time to build this list

Budget-friendly?

4K setup requires some ransom amount of money. But here we are compiling the best parts for all budget that capable of 4K gaming. You may find what you are looking for! no guarantees.

Benchmarks and data

Every recommended buy is based pm data, real world performance and all other stuff (not too technical) from multiple sources instead of one place. So it'll be accurate. It's like a mini review for each component and comparison. It'll be a table, that way it's easy to understand.
Of course, there's a possibility that there'll be errors or bugs in this data. But I'm going to make sure there's zero error. If you spot any, let me now.

AMD Radeon RX 460 vs NVIDIA GeForce GTX 750 Ti


So today I was looking for a possible upgrade for my aging 750ti bought two years ago. I do have a list of best low profile graphics cards (Without the 6-pin PCIe) for any budget. This 750ti versus RX 460 is to analyze whether RX 460 should be recommended over 950 or 750ti based on its performance.  I’m plugging that list on the bottom if you want to check. Last generation card didn’t give me the cheapest upgrade path. I’m a mid-range GPU fan. There were 900 series Nvidia and R series  AMD cards previously. What I was looking for is the best performer without the need for external power supply and without breaking the bank. I do have a Seasonic S11 520 W Bronze power supply that can run most GPU’s. The possible option was GTX 950, but it didn’t offer anything spectacular nor it a replacement for 750ti if you do have own one.

So this year I was looking for upgrade options for my 750ti again. So I found that the competitor is from rival AMD RX 460. The name 460 brings me back the memories of GTX 460. Name sounds familiar. Back on to track. Let’s check RX 460 is a worthy upgrade to 750Ti since its new. Check the RX 460 versus 750ti on the table.

Current Price (8/14/2016)$110/£130$105/£80

It is going to be a tough decision for gamer. After all, I'm looking for a card that can replace 750ti that released two years ago. It's certainly not for me. If you are looking for a new low profile card, then it's a good upgrade. According to chart, RX460 will kick 750ti off its low power throne.




Or you can wait for the GTX 1050 (rumored), but I doubt the price will be lower.

Update:- You can find latest benchmarks (950 vs 750Ti vs Rx 460 in this channel)

FIFA 17 vs PES 17 : Rivalry Ends?

This war between FIFA and Konami PES is going on for years now. Many battles have been fought, and both won many. This year they are going to battle again! Who will become the final King of the football game? Is it FIFA 17 or PES 17? Let's check it out.

FIFA 17 - Analysis

The PC version of FIFA 17 launches on September 27 in North America or September 22 for Origin Access members.The expectations are high for this game. FIFA is dominating the sales chart for past few years. Why? More licensed Leagues, Teams, and top of that well-polished gameplay and minimal bugs. Taking that aside have a look at this year's impressive features.
Story Mode
For the first time FIFA 17 feature story mode. The story will follow a man named Alex Hunter aspiring to become the best footballer. Incorporating RPG into a football game makes FIFA 17 changes into a non-linear game this year.
Frostbite Engine
FIFA 17 switched from the impact engine to Frostbite engine which powers the company's infamous Battlefield 1. A major graphical overhaul.

Gameplay Changes in FIFA 17

Physical Gameplay Overhaul




It's a new way player interact all over the pitch. For example, Eden Hazard likes to play with contact and use his body for physical advantage in the game. And he always keeps ball at his feet. At the center of the overhaul is 'pushback tech' which is US patent pending technology EA built for realism. During any situation, you can trigger the physical play. So you can decide when to engage in battle for ball and space during the game. Also, it enables the first touch shielding against defensive threats. When a pass is played the recipient already knows the defender nearby. So he can shield out and receive the ball in protected position. The overall physical interaction in the game is realistic ever than before.

Active Intelligence System

In FIFA 17 Every player has an awareness of his surroundings and space. Players always try to create space off the ball. Teammates are more active and look for a chance to create space with new run types such as fake runs and run into deep.

New Attacking Techniques
For years FIFA had a problem with attacking techniques. Most shots always go to the roof of the net and Finally! Shots go low instead of always finding the roof of the net. Now you can drive low hard shots into the bottom corner or shoot low volley to deceive the keeper who is expecting high volley. Also now you have the ability to head the ball down. Threaded through passes is another new technique which exists in FIFA 17. Have a look at Lampard pass the ball through the defenders in the real game. It's called the threaded through the pass. Look at the %#@! Awesome delivery of the pass.


Now you can pass like that in FIFA 17.


Set Piece Rewrite
Last but not least one another impressive feature is set Piece Rewrite. In FIFA 17 You can adjust your distance from the ball and based on that distance ball now has a different trajectory. It's useful for players who like vary the free kick or penalty. You can go for a far post or near post based on the position of yourself from the dead balls which allows a wider variety of free kicks and penalty. You can also control your run up to penalties.
Take a look at this you can do that in FIFA 17 too.


nah. kidding! Now let's have a look at what's PES 17 has up its sleeves set to release on 15 Sep 2016?

PES 17 Analysis
Nobody trains for a second place. Let's have an eye on the impressive features of PES 17. What? Are they trying for a second position? I'm not expecting for a big marketing campaign, and I wish I could list some interesting features. But there aren't any?

They are talking about player authenticity and such things, but I hear this for some time since PES 13. It was called player ID before now they call it player authenticity. Whats player ID or authenticity? Each player has a set of a unique identifiable feature in a real football game. You can tell who's that player looking how they are running, passing and dribbling. Just like in real games PES has this feature. Each player has a unique set of feature just like in real games. Initially, there weren't many players with life-like authenticity. Now they increased player ID to more players in PES 17.

They signed an exclusive deal with FC Barcelona.The PES 2017 core concept is  'Control Reality' this year. The FCB signature style is Tiki-Taka will get implemented by Konami in PES 17.
Update: EA signed a deal with Man U

Apart from above, there's not much to write.

Gameplay Changes in PES 17
Real touch, Precise pass, advanced instructions, Total team control, corner kick control, Adaptive AI, Authentic visuals and natural movements. It's the same as last year with a different tone.

PC gamers also got left behind with no content improvement on PC port. I LOL'd when the Konami spokesmen (Bhatti) said in another tweet that PC port would have superior resolution and FPS with FIFA 17. If you are on PC, don't ever think about buying PES 17, its the same old game in a new bottle.

The decisive conclusion
It was a long ongoing battle, and it's clear from PES side that they no longer want to compete with FIFA anymore. The rivalry ends here. It's FIFA 17 who scored the winning goal.

Both games are available on PS4,Xbox One and PC
