Game Benchmarks – Part 2
In Gears 5 we are running at 1440p with the “Ultra” settings and performance is exactly the same between the CPUs at 88 FPS.
At 4K it is more of the same, same performance between the CPUs.
Red Dead Redemption 2
In Red Dead Redemption 2 we are running at 1440p but have set the game to custom “High” settings instead of the maximum settings. In this game, we actually see a larger difference between the CPUs than we would have thought. The Ryzen 5 3600X is at 71 FPS while the Ryzen 5 3600 is at 66 FPS. That’s a 7% performance difference, and the highest we’ve seen yet in this entire performance comparison between the CPUs.
Since this game is very demanding, the more FPS you can get really helps smooth out gameplay. Therefore, for this game, running at “High” settings, the Ryzen 5 3600X does actually provide a better gameplay experience at 1440p on a high-end GPU.
Even at 4K, there is a slight difference of 3% which says something about the game. Using a high-end GPU CPU can affect it if not running at the game’s highest possible settings. Remember, we are running at “High” settings, not “Ultra” here.
Shadow of the Tomb Raider
In this game at 1440p, we are running SMAA 4X and the highest in-game settings. Performance is the same between the CPUs.
At 4K once again the CPU performance is the same.
