    Which resolution?


    The CPU is bottlenecking. Although it has many cores, the default clocks are low and it's an older architecture.

    Im not 100% sure its the GPU. Thats just where im starting. I just bought it today and moved up from an RTX 2070, that was getting the exact same frames. No shaders, though i do use them, but my frames are awful in Minecraft and CoD MW (Only 2 games i really play). Im getting around 380FPS in Minecraft and 80FPS in CoD. To compare, my friend who also uses a 2080 Super is getting 1000FPS in Minecraft and 144FPS in CoD (CoD is capped). Ive used AIDA64 to check mobo temps, they are fine, the cpu is a i9-9940X not OC and the usage/temps is normal. I dont see anything that could be bottlenecking and im not sure where to go from here. I feel like its not the card as the RTX 2070 should of had better frames as well. I am using a 120Hz Acer Predator ultrawide 3440x1440 (setting resolution to 1080P changed nothing)



    I doubt it's a CPU bottleneck, but how much is your CPU utilization while playing? 100%?


    EDIT: CPU not GPU

    Well its 30bucks more here in Finland. Comes with better stock cooler and higher frequenzy

    3600 + 30€ cooler is still better value than 3600X with it's stock cooler. (Also in other regions the gap is bigger)

    The +200MHz boost is the only + in 3600X, IF the cooler would still be copper instead of aluminum it might be a different case.

    Also in games the fps difference is too small to actually make the 3600X worth the extra.

  3. ((PSU)?) > GPU > Motherboard + CPU


    PSU is okayish, i take its Xilence Performance A+? If it's Performance C then you need to upgrade it for sure. 430W MIGHT just be enough, even with 2070S.


    CPU: i'd prefer the Ryzen 5 3600, basicly the same as 3600X and newer than 2700X. If you really need to save some money then you could go with 2700X, but imo 3600 is worth the extra 30€. Main reason being better memory compatibility. (No need to buy B-die)


    GPU: Hard to say which one would be better overall, i'd pick the cheapest 5700XT (NOT THE BLOWER COOLER ONES), unless 2070S is cheaper or within 20€.


    Also wait for other comments too!

    I agree with the temp theory for the stuttering but also 6GB of RAM :s RAM should be done in equal pairs so it could be struggling to process the 6GB - I've seen this before..

    I somewhat agree, since limiting fps did nothing it's either CPU temps or RAM, and since you have 5-5.5GB utilized, i'm pretty sure RAM is the limiting factor here.

    I was also unimpressed with 1440p and 4k performance numbers, just using 1080p as a reference point.

    Well i am pretty impressed that 2080Ti can run majority of games at 4K over 60fps. I mean yea price/perf sucks, and all the new fancy features that the RTX cards offer are not worth it yet. But when it comes to raw performance in games, the ~75% uplift in perf over 3 generations, (R9 380 vs 2080Ti), is still pretty impressive. In my opinion anyways :D

  6. I agree that the pricing has gone out of hands, but those cards are not aimed at 1080p. At 1080p resolution the CPU will be the bottleneck, when going higher like 1440p or even 4K you see the big differences compared to the previous generations. How much performance can your R9 380 give compared to 2080Ti when running at 4K? That is the question and worthy comparison.

    Wow that is great news.  Thank you Karath and ChewToy my master guru.  I currently have 60hz monitor and vsync off gives tearing.  But I guess what I learned is is if you have a 120 or 144hz monitor turning off vsync does not make things tear.  That is amazing if that is the case.  Tearing sux big time and vsync on messed up your fps.. sighs.

    There can be tearing on 120 or 144Hz monitors, you just cannot see it that well since the picture is updated much more frequently.

    Hey there,


    I run a pretty substantial build, with a RTX 2080Ti in SLI via the RTX Nvlink Bridge, see my full build here


    However, when I play games like Warframe or Apex Legends, the games consistently crash on me.


    I have looked around and seen some people talk about driver support, but even when I just run one GPU, the games crash.


    I don't think this should be possible with the specs I am running, so if anyone has ideas, that would be greatly appreciated :)

    1. Check and update your drivers, OR if you have just updated them rollback.

    2. AS @Quadriplegic said, put everything to stock, disable all overclocks if you have any.

    3. Like @Evanair said run some benchmarks, if it doesn't crash in Prime95 etc. might just be the game.

    4. Monitor everything, E V E R Y T H I N G.

    No but I’m not too sure that that would be helpful. All bios updates mention system stability and one mentions 5th gen CPUs. The newest BIOS update that is a beta.

    1. You could check BIOS option in boot/drive setup (whatever it is) and check if there is anything about enabling pci-e storage etc.

    2. Update your BIOS and try again.
