Whats your Haswell CPU clockspeed in GHz for gaming?

  1. higher? please consider posting below.

    4.2GHz is plenty however with the games becoming more CPU intensive even a 4930MX @ 4.3GHz won't be enough for 4K@60Hz by next year... Then again, who knows what will happen in a year? ;)

    Nah, I pretty much guarantee GPU will be the bottleneck at 4K if we're talking laptops

    Wow, that seems like a steep goal. I never imagined the CPU needing to be clocked THAT high :(

    3.5GHz is a bottleneck for me in some games. Granted, I'm not forcing a GPU bottleneck and I have a 120Hz screen, but if I could find SOME WAY I would keep my CPU at like 4.5GHz 24/7

    I could do 4.5GHz constant if I didn't have this stupid TDP throttle.. Damm Alienware :(

    I use i7 4710MQ at 2.5 GHz at FHD resolution and I have not experienced bottleneck in games. Sure, I lose a few fps but not instant drops like from 60 to 10 fps which is pretty common with bottlenecks. I use it due to lesser heat and fan noise. Actually 3.0 GHz is the best in terms of balance between heat, fan noise and performance for i7 4710MQ but still, I prefer lesser heat and fan noise for sacrificing little performance. I can't even imagine overclocking my i7 4710MQ to 4.0 GHz. That would be horrible when Haswell CPUs are already running too hot. Maybe someday I will enjoy 4.0 GHz CPU speed with no heat or noise problems after I will sell my laptop and buy a desktop.

    i7 -4710MQ to 4.0 GH ? Perhaps with all 4 cores? What.... LoL

    @Dufus got his 4700MQ to like 4.7 GHz XD

    I know... But it is no others who have managed this:p:D Whatever 4.7ghz does not work with Wprime 1024:p

    FWIW I'm not the only one to achieve 4.7GHz on a 4700MQ but perhaps it's a mute point. Maybe if I had a fine machine such as yours Papusan I could achieve a bit more. Also ambient temps where I live of over 30C most of the year round don't help. Better if I lived in a country like Norway where just opening a window can achieve ambient temps of -40C :p hahaha. Well, it felt like -40C during the times I've been over there.

    What's your best Wprime 32M? I see Mr. Fox ran at 4.9GHz for just over 5 Seconds, should be under 5Secs at 4.9GHz (~4.7Secs) so maybe some throttling or it just wasn't run optimally. The 4930MX is IMO a better binned chip so results should be better but running heavy loads at desktop CPU speeds with a much lower pin count is probably not such a good thing for the CPU.
