    What is your backup GPU?

    Geforce Now is my “backup GPU”, or there’s always XCom2 on my iPad. I tried Stadia, but not having my Steam library is a major issue. NVidia has steadily been improving their streaming. :)

    Who's Happy So Far with Ryzen 3000 Series?

    Ryzen 3900x has 6% slower performance on average compared to 9900k in 36 games tested, no overclock needed. Is 3600x faster than that? Doubt it. The summary is on 7' 27'' mark.

    Who's Happy So Far with Ryzen 3000 Series?

    Your Ti’s were faster because they were clocked higher than mine. I’ve never claimed that Ryzen is not good for gaming. All I said was that 3700x I bought was worse than my 4790k in low 1 and 0.1%. As it didn’t meet my expectations I got 9900k in the sale instead. I’m happy with the glitch...

    There you go gerardfraser. Wish we had the same graphics though. It’s 1080Ti vs 2080 really. Avg 73.3 FPS Min 56.9 FPS Max 92.2 FPS 1% 60 FPS 0.1% 58 FPS

    Who's Happy So Far with Ryzen 3000 Series?

    Going from 4770k @ stock to 3700x you will see a big benefit. If you had your CPU heavily overclocked, you would be hard pushed to see a difference in single core. In multi-core, that's a different story, the extra cores are amazing. You would notice a big difference even with 3600x. Just ask...

    Intel getting completely destroyed on Twitter

    Wonders of having a real competition again, huh? 9900k was going Amazon briefly for £404. Thumbs up!

    Who's Happy So Far with Ryzen 3000 Series?

    Yeah, it’s the door. Just watched the video. I got my numbers from DE:MD built-in benchmark, so that it’s easier to compare on any other hardware. If you could re-run that, fully OC’d, no v-sync, I’d be grateful. It would be good to see what good Ryzen samples are capable of.

    Thanks for proving my point.

    Who's Happy So Far with Ryzen 3000 Series?

    It’s not RAM timings, it’s CPU and more specifically a single thread performance. Try other games, like DE:MD or DirectX11 games, like GR:W. For me and the games I play, 3700x without an overclock was a downgrade from 4790k @4.8GHz. Yes, extra cores helped, but smoothness they bring get...

    Who's Happy So Far with Ryzen 3000 Series?

    Having looked again I noticed that you run single thread bench, so my bad. I thought it was MT. Good for you. At 4k you shouldn't notice any CPU bottleneck in low 1%. I noticed fair bit even in 1440p.

    Who's Happy So Far with Ryzen 3000 Series?

    You lucky so and so! :-D If my 3700x boosted that well I’d have kept it. If my RAM worked at 3600MHz and not just at 3200MHz, I’d have kept it. If AMD RAID worked reliably I’d have kept it. Rant over. EDIT: Just watched your first video and noticed that yes two cores boosted well, but the...

    9900k or 3800x

    It works ok, but not great, I tried it with 3700x. Wildlands uses DirectX 11 engine. 1% lows will suffer. I had to overclock it to get my lows back up to my previous 4790k @4.8GHz. One of the reasons why I went for 9900k in the end. That’s on 1440p mind.

    9900k or 3800x

    Here's something that could help. I know this thread isn't about 3700x, but here's a result of overclocked 3700x ~@4250Mhz in Deus Ex: Mankind Divided compared to 9900k @ 5 Ghz on ultra at 1440p, using overclocked 1080Ti.

    9900k or 3800x

    Don’t get me wrong, I’d love a 4K screen, but my entertainment budget can’t stretch to 2080ti :-) My ultimate screen would be 4 to 5K, but hiDPI. I occasionally use DSR to prettify my 1440p, for now. Just saying.
