Game Benchmarks – Part 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 5 3600X gets 105.9 FPS while the Ryzen 5 3600 yields 103.2 FPS. That puts the Ryzen 5 3600X at a 3% performance advantage at 1440p.
Now we have increased the resolution to 4K at the same highest in-game settings. The Ryzen 5 3600X comes in at 73.3 FPS while the Ryzen 5 3600 is at 73.2 FPS. The performance is exactly the same, there is an advantage to either CPU at 4K as the game is GPU dependent at 4K even in this older game.
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 5 3600X comes in at 110 FPS and the Ryzen 5 3600 at 108 FPS. That’s a 2% advantage toward the Ryzen 5 3600X. That is too small of a difference to be noticeable in-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.
Ghost Recon Breakpoint
In Ghost Recon Breakpoint we are running the game at 1440p with the “Ultimate” setting in the benchmark which is the highest in-game settings. The Ryzen 5 3600X and Ryzen 5 3600 both give 88 FPS average performance in the benchmark. This game is already GPU dependent at 1440p with “Ultimate” settings.
At 4K we lowered the game to Ultra settings, but the result is the same, at 65 FPS average both CPUs perform exactly the same.
