Thread: Empire Total War and new hardware

    Default Empire Total War and new hardware

    Empire Total War is a game from 2009 but still I find it hard to have a good performance with everything maxed even with today's technology. Considering the current available hardware technology, I would like to discuss and understand how can Empire Total War benefit from the current hardware. Which hardware components would make a difference in performance? For example, for graphic cards (GPU), would make a difference in performance a better GPU than Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 6 GB DDR5? Considering this game is from 2009, I wonder if a GPU Nvidia FeForce GTX 1070 with 8 GB DDR5 is really needed to boost performance fps in Empire Total War. This is my favourite game because of the time period and I am planning to build a new computer to play it with the best quality and performance possible. That's the reason I am asking for advice, because I don't know if it would be better to invest more money on CPU rather than GPU, would a good gaming CPU boost performance and bring stability to Empire Total War? I am thinking about a combination of good GPU + top CPU, as an example: Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 + i7-8700K.

    Thank you in advance.

    When Empire was released I think games used 1 maybe 2 cores. There’s a way to manipulate the ‘threads’ to make it use all four cores if you have a modern computer, I’ll post more detail about that if you can’t figure it out yourself.

    After a quick research I found this:

    Is this what you are refering to? I will give a try with the current computer I have.

    I think The multithreading they’re talking about is it yes
