Did i lose the Silicon Lottery?

You can't use userbenchmark to check whether you lost or won the silicon lottery. It's a benchmark and not even a particularly good one at that; if you want to know how well you stand on the so-called silicon lottery, you need to compare a single component to what others are getting, not the whole system.

True, but i am kinda baffled that it says my 2070 super super is performing so badly compared to other 2070 supers

Hello,

 

Use Cinebench R15 or R20 for the CPU.

 

Use 3DMarks for your GPU and compare to others.

Just built the system, and made sure it was running the factory OC, but the GPU only got up to like 88%, so i overclocked it even further just to try and hit the 100% in the gaming category 

 

Edit: The original Bench before i started OCing https://www.userbenchmark.com/UserRun/24093677

The phrase “silicon lottery”, at least as I’ve heard it used, applies to only CPUs and GPUs and applies to them separately.   I suggest a GPU specific test.  The userbenchmark stuff may not actually mean anything.  Userbenchmark has all kinds of reliability problems with both its rating systems and its graphs.  Might make it worth checking.  My suspicion is something is messed up in your settings.


Life is like a bowl of chocolates: there are all these little crinkly paper cups everywhere.

Almost all benchmarks on userbenchmark are oced gpus/cpus that makes a stock gpu looking a bit slower then it really is try to use msi afterburner etc and see if u can push the core mem speed a bit and see where ur at

It's pointless to get all upset about it. Userbenchmark doesn't say what the others have or haven't done about their setups, it doesn't say if those 2070 supers are subzero-cooled in order to get extreme overclocks or anything like that and thus you should only take it as a ballbark-estimate, not a hard value to compare to.

the range of silicon lottery in turing isn't something i'd worry about, it's kinda small. if you are boosting to the correct clocks and still gets bad fps/3dmark, then it could be something else in the system, fairly common with ram on ryzen.

The fragility of Userbenchmark can be seen in e.g. my results at https://www.userbenchmark.com/UserRun/24096755

 

I seem to be getting really good scores, even though I haven't actually bothered to OC my setup all that much. I just don't find overclocking fun or interesting, so I spend maybe 10-15 minutes on it and call it a day. Without even trying to push my clocks really hard, I do not believe I should be that high on the scores.
