Hi guys,
I have i5 4440. If i change for i7 4790k i can have more performance with my rx 480? I have Z97M PLUS Motherboard. Thanks!
BF1 is a monster in CPU and my rx down for 45FPS in certain cases
 
Even without overclocking you'd likely get a noticeable improvement. The 4440 suffers from slow clock speeds, 3.1 ghz base speed up to 3.3ghz if and when turbo boost can be utilized. Turbo boost often drops back down when all 4 cores are in heavy use. The 4790k out of the box runs at 4ghz and slightly faster, around 4.2ghz with turbo boost (turbo's up to 4.4ghz) with all 4 cores in heavy use. Hyperthreading can also offer a performance increase in bf1.
