If I'm going to be honest, allot of the gaming benchmarks that LTT does are quite inadequate per se. Who actually plays Deus Ex Mankind? or similar games? Sure, they're usually a great benchmarking utility, like Metro Last Light and Crysis 3 were, but not that many people play them. There are games like CS:GO and Rocket League (?) that they test for eSports titles, but they don't test Rainbow Six? I can tell you from a objective standpoint that the hardware selection that Siege appeals to is far different from Deus Ex or the likes. What influenced this was; The 3570k beating out the r7 1700 at stock clocks in most games. I'm gonna say, that in siege, this will not happen. Siege uses up to 8 threads, or can evenly balance the workload of 8 threads across all threads (weird ik) The 3570k @ 4.8Ghz (Userbench 132sc 524mc) gets an average of 110fps at low settings with a gtx 970 T-AA renderscale = 80, with the same settings with an x5650 @ 4.35Ghz (Userbench 107sc 821mc) gets an average of 125fps. and when I turned off one core and two threads for 5/10 @4.5ghz (Userbench 113sc 687mc) got an average of 130fps. The 3570k only utilized my gpu to an average of 80%, the x5650 @ 4.35 6/12 used about 85%, and the x5650 @4.5 5/10 used about 88%. Ohnoes IDidARant Conclusion or tl;dr: They should benchmark different games that people actually play, siege is a pretty big esports title, this goes for other youtubers as well, you benchmark Cs;go, Rocket league, Overwatch, Fortnite, Pubg, but not siege? what the fuck?
