Gaming Benchmarks Part 3
Thanks to recently added support and content patches for Ghost Recon, its become quite a good game. Weirdly, AMD has the highest minimum FPS here. The 3900X is also strangely close to the Intel test systems. That said, Intel does match or exceed the 3900X. Though it seems to take the 10900K to do that whereas the 3900X and 9900K were almost evenly matched.
Even with the Vulkan renderer, 4K is rough on the GPU and CPU. With a 2080Ti you can get away with slightly higher settings, so we are using the Very High preset here. In any case, all of the CPU’s can maintain right around a 60FPS minimum. The super close results across all test platforms indicate that we are absolutely GPU bound in this game and resolution.
This is another Vulkan game. Oddly, the 10900K when overclocked falters in terms of minimum frame rates. This game’s performance was measured by Frame view. I never noticed this slowdown, but never the less it evidently occurred. In any case, at low-quality settings this game is smooth enough you can probably run it on a fairly old PC and be OK.
Unfortunately, at 4K, this game is literally all over the place in terms of frame rates. This is something we may have to revisit. Being a manual run-through using Frame view, it’s possible I did something different to cause this, although I can’t imagine what that could have been. More testing is required here.
