Performance problem (RTX 2070)

It's definitely because of single channel.

You're most likely running out of RAM in most of those games. I'm surprised you bought the parts you have and only managed a single stick of 8GB RAM. That, and it being single channel, are the most likely problems, though the CPU load at 100% is kind of a head scratcher. Do you have some programs running in the background? Maybe an anti-virus, or windows update?

Pretty much all latest AAA titles can utilize 16 threads, especially games like BF1 and 5, which are known to be CPU heavy. I get 100% usage on a 9700k, so 100% on a 8600k is completely normal and expected. It's only 6c/6t.

Hello everyone.

 

Yesterday I got RTX 2070 and started testing games.

First I had problem with Battlefield 1 dipping fps and stuttering, while fps is lower than it "should" be according to reviews. I searched for solution and I think single channel 8gb RAM is problem (cpu was on 100% while GPU wasn't). (Battlefield V similar)

Than I tested Shadow of the Tomb Raider and it ran again lower than reviews, but it seems that only scenes with many people dipped to around 40 fps.

After that I tried GTA V assuming it is older game so there shouldn't be any problems running it around 90fps but it ran surprisingly bad around 40-60 fps most of the time. 

_______________________________________

In all tests I maxed out settings and it was 1080p

 

PC specs:

Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-8600K

Mobo: ASROCK Z370 Pro4

RAM: HyperX 8GB FURY DDR4 2666MHz CL16 single stick 

GPU: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2070 (https://www.msi.com/Graphics-card/GeForce-RTX-2070-ARMOR-8G)

PSU: CORSAIR TX650M

 

What do you guts think is it all because single channel memory or is there something else that could be causing the problem?

Did you DDU in safe mode to install the drivers fresh new? but likely the single channel is bottlenecking you yes

While you are here. Can I buy other stick of RAM that is the same but it has cl15 (HyperX 8GB FURY DDR4 2666MHz CL15)? Will dual channel work fine then?

Edit:

Thank you all who tried to answer my question

it's best to buy the same ram, if not, both sticks will likely run at the specs of the slower ram. the 8600k does bottleneck a handful of multithreaded games past a certain frame rate around the 100fps  range regardless even if you oc, 6 cores/6thread just isn't enough for some games. But in your case, it's most likely just ram.
