Thanks, very interesting article and certainly useful information !
CPU reviews aren't about what CPU+GPU combination is best; it's about ensuring that one can see what difference there is between two central processors when all other variables (or as many as possible) have been removed or reduced to a minimum.
Yes, but in this case, this is an interesting part of this article (maybe even just as a side effect):
You can see what CPU+GPU makes 'a lot of' sense, which combo 'maybe', and which combo 'doesn't' ...
With the 4090, it is clear that something (driver overhead ?) is causing performance issues (vs the 6950), so the question is if that effect would also be present with more mid-range Geforce cards ? And to what degree ?
What happens at the top end is clearly interesting, but in this case, it would have been also very useful to see an additional mid range Geforce (3060ti ?) next to the Radeon 6650.
