The processor is one of the things they upgraded somewhere along the line, hence the word upgrade.
Saying it's an upgrade (over many, many generations) of the Quake 3 engine is fanboy nonsense. Might as well say it's an upgrade of the Quake 1 engine. We are talking many, many iterations ago, there is nothing direct about it.
What is your point any way? DICE didn't build a new engine for Battlefield 4 either by your logic. But I didn't see you trolling the Battlefield thread by saying they simply used an old engine saying the devs had it easy and it's all based around Bad Company tech. Oooh right, that's that fanboyism coming into play.
