Did this other site use exactly the same tests in those games that Steve did? The exact same locations, the exact same environments, action taking place, and so on. Without that information, any comparison between test setups and subsequent results is a fairly empty exercise.I took this from another site who uses I7-10700k. So we can compare for 2k: AC:Odyssey ultra- i7:78fps, your 3950x: 66fps, F1 2020 ultra- i7:170fps, 3950x:151, Horizon Zero Dawn ultimate- i7:105fps, 3950x:96fps, Wolfenstein Youngblood mein leiben! setting- i7:236fps and again your 3950x:199fps. It`s true in 4k the differences shrink, but this is suppose to be a 2k card. I hope the I9 benches come next, just to be fair.
16 GB versions are definitely possible - Samsung and Micron both offer 14 Gbps, 2 GB GDDR6 modules (SK Hynix doesn't), and it wouldn't require any changes to the PCB layout (just the VRMs). They're not in very high demand, though, so there may not be sufficient volume of them yet, to warrant AIB vendors looking to offer a 16 GB model just yet.Yes really, which is why we will see OEM's with more memory and higher boost clocks I imagine. You don't buy now for just today's games but for future games that push it harder. Gaming at 4K everything helps and I'm not talking about slower gpu's.
