    The Voucher Code Will Not Work

    Not against the voucher code idea at all. I thought it was great as ive finally been able to get a 3070. I think the MM access idea was great. Ive bought all my gpu's either from ocuk direct or via the used marketplace every time ive upgraded over the past 15 years. I wanted to pick up a 3070...

    help undervolting msi b550 carbon 5600x

    hi guys, looking to get a little extra performance out of my 5600x and i've stumbled across the youtube video showing to undervolt in bios in order to run cooler and gain a slight performance boost. I tried following it and something seems a bit wrong with my setup. Soon as i set a negative...

    Upgrade from 1070 to 2070 and performance lost.

    I'm getting 18% faster average fps and overall score (30fps more), 16% faster lowest frame, 17% faster highest fps using the same settings as you. Ryzen 5600x is stock speed. Overall, whatever the issue was it does feel like i'm getting the proper performance now at least. Just a shame the...

    Upgrade from 1070 to 2070 and performance lost.

    I benched at 1920x1080 without the 8xAA. Everything else was highest setting. I didnt realise i'd missed off the 8xAA with the old cpu so just used the same settings to make it a fair comparison. I stick to the 1920x1080 as ive got at least one bench from each iteration of upgrades so i can see...

    Upgrade from 1070 to 2070 and performance lost.

    Decided to try running valley again. Left screen was the very very highest i was able to OC the 2070s to while using the 4790k. Took a good 10-15 runs to get there, starting the benchmark from a cold card etc. New score for the ryzen has it performing much more in line with results other people...

    Upgrade from 1070 to 2070 and performance lost.

    I'm not going from a 1070 to a 3070, i'd be going from a 2070s to a 3070.

    Upgrade from 1070 to 2070 and performance lost.

    Yeah but i can't buy one of those now so it's £600 to be comparable.

    Upgrade from 1070 to 2070 and performance lost.

    Averages will go up sure, but lows wont improve much. 6fps lows vs 40fps lows on my very same gpu due to swapping the cpu out. Thats a 6.5x increase on the lows (1070 to 2070s) as well as 10-15% increase in averages compared to a less than 30% difference on the averages (going 2070s to 3070) as...

    Upgrade from 1070 to 2070 and performance lost.

    You will see a big improvement, but you won't see AS BIG of an improvement as the card is truly capable of. So swapping from a gtx1070 to a 3070 you'd be getting 80% of the 3070's fps instead of 100%.

    Upgrade from 1070 to 2070 and performance lost.

    :p Not sure if sarcasm or not but the tech specs were: Capacity: 16 GB / 2 x 8 GB (Dual Channel) Clock: 2400 MHz Latency: CL 11-12-12-31 Voltage: 1.65 V Tighter timings than corsair vengeance pro that runs at 11-13-13-31.

    Upgrade from 1070 to 2070 and performance lost.

    In high fps (tbf you probably wont notice on 60hz screen) games i was having stuttering, fps drops little micro pauses and the whole thing felt remarkably unsmooth. Going to the 5600x and all of that is gone. I just get way more stable frames now. Rendering clips for youtube is literally half...

    Upgrade from 1070 to 2070 and performance lost.

    Well, bit of a thread revival but new 5600x, ddr4 at 3600 and a fresh windows install later. Same 2070super I think my 4790k and ddr3 was holding me back a bit in ROTR and it gets much better scores now. I doubt anyone cares but i'm happy now and thought the thread could do with a conclusion.

    https://imgshare.io/image/NDW9WH https://imgshare.io/image/NDWvap Thank you very much to my secret santa. Sweets are great and the screwdriver is absolute quality. Already used it on a job for the past 2 days (still working hence the slow reply in here)! Really solid piece of kit, thank you.

    Cheap upgrade from i5 4670K to pair with 2070 Super?

    Yep, i get this too. My 4790k is showing its age and it does really hamper the performance of the card. I was concerned about my 2070 super being faulty and when testing in friends machine it was hitting much better and tremendously more stable framerates in games than it was in my machine.
