Game Benchmarks – 1
Grand Theft Auto V
Now it is time to test games. In Grand Theft Auto V we are using the built-in benchmark and testing at two resolutions, 1440p and 4K. We have all the in-game options turned on to their highest levels for the highest quality graphics included the Advanced options for long distance draw and shadow draw. The video card in all the tests is an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 SUPER Founders Edition.
In this first graph we are looking at 1440p with the highest in-game settings. The AMD Ryzen 7 3700X gets 104.8 FPS while the Ryzen 7 2700X yields 94.7 FPS. That puts the Ryzen 7 3700X at an 11% performance advantage.
Now we have increased the resolution to 4K at the same highest in-game settings. The Ryzen 7 3700X comes in at 74.3 FPS while the Ryzen 7 2700X is at 72.1 FPS. That is only a 3% difference. It seems this game is CPU dependent at 1440p with this GPU, but at 4K it’s a lot more GPU dependent, still the CPU affects it ever so slightly.
Far Cry 5
In Far Cry 5 we are running the game at 1440p with the highest in-game settings and HD Textures running the benchmark. The Ryzen 7 3700X comes in at 111 FPS and the Ryzen 7 2700X at 102 FPS. That’s a 9% advantage toward the Ryzen 7 3700X, so it certainly makes a difference in this game at 1440p.
Now we have increased to 4K resolution with the same in-game settings. Performance is now equal at 62 FPS between the CPUs with no difference at all. This shows that at 4K, even in this game, you become totally GPU dependent.
