  2. Don't cap the framerate, and do not use vsync. Just turn on Enhanced Sync in the Radeon Settings along with Freesync for maximum smoothness. That allows the game engine to run unlocked with maximum fps. Even if it exceeds the monitors maximum refresh rate there will not be tearing as the GPU only sends the display the newest completed frame.
  3. Ok I did that, below is what I did in the BIOS. But look at what it says about the range of possible values on the right. btw when I enabled that control it defaults to 39 before I change it. Anyway I changed it to 58. After I set it to 58 and log back into windows below is what I get. tRC has actually gone up further.
  4. When i click on Advanced DRAM configuration I get the below. I can only change the items under Main Timing Configuration. From Sub Timing Configuration downwards everything is greyed out. Regardless of whether I am in XMP mode or not. If I go the advanced overclocking DRAM section I can see the below which looks like greek to me. Can I change the tRC to 58 from here? If so how?
  5. Verified with Ryzen Master. It confirmed all the CPU-Z readings. BIOS is up to date. Also as mentioned in OP my system runs fine even at 16-19-19-19-39, which is even a lower CL than what my modules are rated for, yet it's stable outside the XMP profile... But the tRC value is still really high.
  6. Hello I would like some assistance in getting my RAM to match the XMP spec exactly. The RAM modules I own are these 2 x 8GB DDR4 3600 T-Force VULCAN TUF Gaming Alliance DDR4 CL19-19-19-39 https://www.teamgroupinc.com/en/product/vulcan-tuf-ddr4 It shows up correctly under the SPD tab of CPU-Z as the only XMP profile. So then I enable XMP in the BIOS and it looks like the correct option in the BIOS as shown below. However when I log back into Windows and check CPU-Z I can see the be
  7. Seems quite likely. AMD is known to use the new architecture for the high end SKUs and rebrand last gen parts for the rest. I do hope there will be a big perf/dollar jump though. I.e. I hope RX 5700 XT performance is available for USD 200. That will allow people to build fast 1440p gaming PCs for cheap. Also AMD better have partner card designs available at launch. This is a very competitive launch because Nvidia is also launching at the same time, so AMD needs to give buyers options.
  8. I bought a Sapphire R9 290 vapor-x in 2014. It's still kicking ass in 2020 on the newest AAA games.
  9. Updated: 28th March 2020: Low Quality Testing on old and budget GPUs Please note that low quality in this game still looks great, you don't lose much visually. Shockingly bad results on Kepler. A former flagship GTX 780ti is losing to an even older low end Radeon HD 7790. https://www.techspot.com/article/2001-doom-eternal-older-gpu-test/
  10. Vega 56. It's already faster today and will age better with the extra VRAM and AMD's good long term driver support.
  11. Debatable. Being well technically polished certainly is of value to the games reputation, especially on PC. No doubt games like Assasin's Creed Unity and Batman Arkham Knight took a big sales hit because of bad performance, word gets around.
  12. I guess unlike id software most developers do not have the expert talent to really optimize graphics, including making the most of a low level API.
  13. This is the follow up to the acclaimed 2016 game. Doom Eternal by id software uses the idtech 7 engine. Graphics pipeline is natively Vulkan based, no fallback option for older DirectX or OpenGL versions. id software has developed a good reputation for being extremely technically proficient, the John Carmack legacy is still alive in the company. Their games tend to perform smoothly while looking good and making the most of available resources. Doom Eternals graphics are a step up from the previous entry. Please note the below benchmarks are absolutely maxed out, so you should be ab
