1440p 144hz vega 64

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

As title says, i got the xfx vega 64 for quite a steal imo (300€), now i'm looking for a new monitor (currently 1080p/60hz). CPU is R5 2600 and 16gb 3200 ram.

I want to always be a bit futureproof, so it makes sense to go 1440p+144Hz, now I always try to keep the budget as low as possible, so I found the Samsung C27JG50 - cheap, just no freesync(in my country for around 320€, but i havent found that many reviews, does anyone have it? Is it a good monitor?). So here comes the question, can I game on this vega 64 (considering it with undervolting/overclocking) on high settings in AAA games like GTA V / Witcher / Doom / AC / Tomb raider without freesync and not experience substantial screen tearing etc? If i get around 100 fps or more on 144hz monitor, do I actually need freesync or is more for 70-80fps? A cheap freesync 1440p/144hz would be MSI optix which is 80€ more.

Good luck with that, unless you can see the future.

If your framerate is consistent in games with few drops or jumps, then you'd be fine without it.


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Kill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - The venerated Hyper 212 Evo (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer branwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - MSI GTX 650 - some 7200RPM SATA II thing - Ubuntu (at the moment)

High settings? Probably not.  To give you a point of reference, the RX Vega 64 slots in between the GTX 1070/1070ti and the 1080 with minimal gains over the 1070ti. I run a 1070 OC'd to 2100Mhz which is significantly higher than a 1070ti plus an i5 9600k @5.2 ghz. At 1080p, highest settings on a 144hz display in Assassins Creed I get 62 FPS average, 31 at the lowest and 102 at the highest.  I can only assume that you'd be getting 30 FPS just barely at 1440p with maxed settings on games as intensive as Witcher, GTA etc. esp. with how reliant they are on threads/core count/and how hyper threading hungry they are.

A 1440p 144Hz that's cheap (and as a result, only good because it's cheap) because of future proofing, that's wrong. Either you spend as little as possible to get to high refresh rate gaming (1080p 144Hz), or you go to the top for a good and as a result, expensive 1440p 144Hz. In other words, go small or go big. Middle routes are always a bad idea.

Yet you have only 79% the cuda cores. Many 1070ti can overclock to 2GHz anyway and 5% extra clock wont balance out the cut cores.


Studying abroad, ditched the crappy laptop for a do-all laptop double. Dried factory CPU paste, long memory timings, cooler cools the inductors but not the mosfets and an inch of unused internal space on both left and right

Model: HP Omen 17 17-an110ca CPU: i7-8750H (0.125V core & cache, 50mV system agent undervolt) GPU: GTX 1060 6GB Mobile (1696MHz 0.812V ~ 1860MHz 0.95V) RAM: 12GB DDR4-2666 19-19-19-43 2T Storage: 128GB Toshiba NVMe SSD (KBG30ZMV128G) + 1TB Seagate 7200RPM 2.5" HDD (ST1000LM049-2GH172) Monitor: 1080p 120Hz IPS G-sync

 

The best thing to do is reading the clock speed that doesnt end in a pair of zeros. Software voltage readings are wrong if your motherboard's not a high end model

CPU: i7-2600K 4493MHz (multiplier: 43x) 1.35V (software) --> 1.4V at the back of the socket Motherboard: Asrock Z77 Extreme4 (BCLK: 104.5MHz) CPU Cooler: Noctua NH-D15 RAM: Adata XPG 2x8GB DDR3 (XMP: 10-11-11-30 2T 2133MHz, custom: 10-11-10-30 1T 2229MHz) GPU: Asus GTX 1070 Dual SSD: Samsung 840 Pro 256GB (main boot drive), Transcend SSD370 128GB PSU: Seasonic X-660 80+ Gold Case: Antec P110 Silent, 5 intakes 1 exhaust Monitor: AOC G2460PF 1080p 144Hz (OC'd 150Hz) TN Keyboard: Logitech G610 Orion (Cherry MX Blue) with SteelSeries Apex M260 keycaps Mouse: BenQ Zowie FK1

Have you heard of the funky fact that the 1070ti and rx vega64 can also be heavily overclocked?

It is like saying that your i3 8350k is the same as 9900k, because you have the i3 at 6ghz and the 9900k at the stock 3.6ghz.

Not what I was referring to but okay. Was referring to it in terms of clock speed and the incredible similarities between the 2 cards. Last I checked, the major complaint from reviewers regarding the ti's vs. non ti's for the Pascal GPU's was that there was not enough of a tangible difference in real world benchmarks/gameplay (outside of synthetics) that would warrant an upgrade from a 1070 to a 1070ti or purchasing a 1070ti over a 1070 when the 1070 could be had for a much more competitive price. Furthermore, that's a pretty awful comparison. An i3 8350k is so incredibly behind an i9 9900k that there's not even a comparison where as the 1070 and 1070ti's are stupidly close in real world game-play. Bottom line, I was comparing MY 1070 to 1070ti vs. RX Vega 64 benchmarks for a point of reference, not to say a 1070 was better. Any video regarding 1070 OC vs. 1070ti benchmarks will tell you the exact same thing I've already said and their OC's aren't as extreme. Please read and understand the post next time before throwing out some bogus statement that completely ignores the prior statement/reasoning.
