Gaming Performance 4K
On this page, we are going to see how gaming performance is affected between the CPUs at 4K, which is generally more GPU-dependent. We are using a fast NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 Ti Founders Edition Video card. We have chosen games that are mixed in being GPU dependent, and CPU dependent, all modern games.
As we might expect for this game, at 4K and “Ultra” settings it is completely GPU dependent. There is no difference in performance between the CPUs because even with the GeForce RTX 3080 Ti, it isn’t enough.
Watch Dogs Legion
The same is true for Watch Dogs Legion at 4K, performance is identical across the CPUs as the game is GPU-dependent at 4K and “Ultra” settings.
Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020
Even Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020, which showed a big difference at 1080p, is now GPU-dependent at 4K and performance is the same between the CPUs.
Red Dead Redemption 2
The trend continues in Red Dead Redemption 2 at 4K, we are GPU-dependent, not CPU.
Crysis Remastered is the only game here where the CPU still matters even at 4K. We do see the Ryzen 7 5800X providing 8% greater performance at 4K with the same video card. This makes a pretty significant difference playing this game at 4K, smoothing out performance above 60FPS in the really intense situations.
Metro Exodus Enhanced
Metro Exodus Enhanced is completely GPU-bottlenecked at 4K.
