These benchmarks do not represent real-world gameplay by any stretch of the imagination. These tests are conducted using built-in benchmarking tools utilizing the game engine. These tests are designed to stress the CPU’s power system as well as ensure proper functionality. These are all run at CPU limited resolutions to try our best to remove the video card as a bottleneck.
We see similar results between the Core i9 9900K and the Ryzen 9 3900X on our MSI MEG X570 GODLIKE motherboard.
In The Division 2, our MSI MEG X570 GODLIKE and 3900X trail Intel’s current mainstream flagship by a small amount.
However, in Shadow of the Tomb Raider, we see a similar gap, but given that the FPS in this game is roughly half what it was in The Division 2, the same type of gap is a larger percentage of the performance difference. Still, we see a marked improvement over the previous generation of Ryzen CPU’s, and this includes the 12c/24t Threadripper CPU.
Hitman 2 results are in many ways similar to what we saw in Shadow of the Tomb Raider. Actually, the result is slightly more pronounced as the gap is somewhat bigger with roughly a 23 FPS difference between the Intel Core i9 9900K and the Ryzen 9 3900X.
