4C/4T were bottlenecking Crossfire/SLI setups from BF3.
My DDR3-1333 was never reported by Windows 10. Just blank spaces there, nothing.
Yes, but it wasn't as apparent with the large frame drops that you would experience in BF1. Yes you are bottlenecked but if it can keep it at over 100fps then it is not really that noticeable.
In BF4 with an i5 and 980ti I could keep it at over 100fps at 1080p for the most part with very few frame drops. BF1 on the other hand was a mess with frequent drops into the mid 60s (averaging around 100 the rest of the time) when playing at 1440p.
Pretty sure the i5 being pegged at 100% resulted in stuttering etc, rather than the FPS dipping.
So it was pretty noticeable
On the subject of BF, my performance in BF5 is dire.
I've mentioned this many times in the past. Performance with BF1 was crap too. But I don't know if it's a cpu/gpu bottleneck or just something to do with the server you play on.
Once in a blue moon performance will be fine but 90% of the time I get massive slowdowns when there are big explosions, laggyness and hitching.
It detracts from the game. Makes me think about upgrading the GPU to be fair.
Also the two other games I am playing Assassins Creed Odyssey and Metro Exodus also destroy the GPU.
On the other hand really want to wait it out until the Nvidia next gen. (Not super)
You must of stayed away from the tanks and any destruction in the environment then as I ran an i5 on it and it regularly saw drops. Not huge, still perfectly playable but it did drop. Less noticeable in just fps gunplay, sniping etc.
Interesting session on Destiny 2 last night. It was the first time I actually experienced the difference fast RAM can have to the overall performance of a game.
For reference I was running the game at 1440p 120FPS G-sync, All High / Highest with SMAA and my specs are:
2700x @ ~4.1Ghz all core boost in game (technically not overclocked (PBO) but this was as reported by HWinfo).
16GB DDR4 3200 C14
FE 1080TI @ 2000/11000 (~1974-2020 in game).
When I first dropped into the tower, I noticed my frame-rate was under 60fps and this only increased to the 70-80 range when there were less npcs / players on screen. Certain areas of the actual game, Trostland for example, were also sub 70fps at times. Other times however, I would be hitting my 120fps cap thus assumed it was something odd about the game and not my system (lol, so young and so, so, wrong..).
A quick check of Afterburner showed GPU usage at ~ 65% and CPU usage at ~ 30% overall (some cores loaded up to 60-80% whilst others barely doing anything). Hmmm something not quite right there!
Anywhoo cutting a long story short my RAM had decided to revert to stock 2133mhz speeds despite being set to XMP/DOCP in the bios. Switching it back and I was back up to 80-100 in the tower and 90+ in the game world. GPU usage is still not 100% at all times but I do recall Ryzen is a little slower in this game than Intel.
Not exactly sure what happened but it appears fine now.
Also does anyone else assume blindly ignore the most obvious things first in an attempt to find the obscure reason why something is working right?
I charted the framerates from 4770k @ 4.3 to 1700x to 2700x on BF1 (and others) here. I found Amiens the worst for slowdowns so concentrated on that.
New Chipset drivers.
Installed these on my Win 10 1903 PC. Can someone tell me if the AMD chipset drivers installed also?
These seem missing in this release.
The release notes mention the Ryzen profile is included, but it is not present in my power profiles.
I saw the same thing... have that build and no power plan (I did see a chipset update come through afterwards though.
You mean, pushed through windows update?
i just went out and downloaded a chipset driver update that was released yesterday. Installing now...
What I mean is... I installed the AMD chipset drivers (released yesterday) but they did not include the Ryzen power profile.
Ryzen power profile has been defunct for a long long time, "balanced" is the recommended profile for Ryzen now.
ah ok. ALso... these drivers i just installed are the same.. so you are not alone. (I have had to choose high performance profile for now).
That's good to know. That's all that's available now anyway.
(Despite the release notes stating otherwise)
Not my post, it's from Robert Hallock @ AMD. Posting in-case people are still using Ryzen balanced
Yea. I kinda of knew the Ryzen profile was defunct, but from observations I noticed I was getting higher speeds (0.1 - 0.2MHz) using it over the windows balanced profile.
I go back to balanced now tho. Especially considering there is no Ryzen profile in the new chipset drivers.
My CPU cores run at ~1.4 GHz when not doing much, so I assume that's the lowest they go before entering sleep.
My current strategy is to get the 5700XT, the cheapest 8 core, and the cheapest X570 mobo with reasonable VRMs and no frills.
