Do you want the best CPU and get the maximum out of Battlefield 4, but you do not have time to read reviews? We selected the 5 best CPUs processors for gaming of the month January 2014.
Intel Core i7-4930K Ivy Bridge-E 3.4GHz LGA 2011 130W Six-Core Desktop Processor
Amazing performance and stunning visuals at their best. Get top-of-the-line performance for your most demanding tasks with a 4th generation Intel® Core™ i7 processor.
For a difference you can see and feel in HD and 3-D, multitasking and multimedia, the 4th generation Intel Core i7 processor is perfect for all your most demanding tasks.
Intel Core i7-4770K Quad-Core Desktop Processor
While an i5 is a bottleneck in Battlefield 4, an i7 2600k/3770k/4770k is a much better purchase than the FX9590. The reason being that the standard i7 is not far behind the 9590 and can be overclocked more than the FX9590 ever could.
Essentially giving you better performance at less power cost. A 6 core i7-4930K is the best you can do, but the regular i7 is the one to have for Battlefield, even since BF3.
AMD FX-9590 Vishera 4.7GHz Socket AM3+ 220W Eight-Core Desktop Processor
