  1. oh yeah dont get me wrong, it is a significant increase. But the 1070 ti is supposed to be way more powerful than just 133% of a 970. but it definitely looks like my CPU is the limiting factor
  2. holy crap. just finished watching the video. Looks like im due for an upgrade..
  3. i play on 1440p 144hz monitor. Mostly battlefield 4, 1, V and a ton of gears 5. im getting like 80-100fps on low 1440p with my 1070 ti when i used to be getting 60-80 with my old gtx 970.
  4. I currently upgraded from GTX 970 to a 1070 ti and I'm not seeing full performance. I feel like I'm being CPU bottlenecked. Checked sites like this only show a 9% difference. https://cpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/AMD-Ryzen-5-3600-vs-Intel-Core-i7-4790/4040vs2293 But I've seen others here saying that my 4790 is too old and even the mid tier r5 3600 would be a night and day difference. Is this true?
  5. From what I can tell, 5000 series is the last CPUs to use the AM4 chipset. Upgrade path is very minimal once AM5 comes out. I reckon AM5 will be supported for the next few generations. What do you guys think? Why would anyone buy into a end of line chipset? Edit: other than the fact that you absolutely need a computer straight away
  6. that doesnt sound right. my 4790 (non k) handles PUBG just fine. the only games that hammer my CPU are BFV and Warzone. did you change anything in the BIOS?
  7. i mean, its just $18 bucks for something you'll be using for the next few years. so yeah i would get it
  8. What do you mean by lag spikes? If your laptop gets good connection and your desktop doesnt, i guess we could eliminate the AP as the culprit. What kind of wifi adapter are you using on your desktop? is it one of those "USB wifi adapters?"
  9. by router you mean wifi access points? Wifi is never 100% reliable anyway. But with the right placement, most wifi APs should be able to deliver consistent speeds. I use wifi for gaming and streaming and for the most part, its 95% reliable. Maybe the problem can be solved if you provide more information. TP-Links are usually reliable enough, unless you put a thick wall between you and the AP.
  10. this would be the easiest way. make you routers act like switches. you still could daisy chain them if you need the length
  11. i personally dont think that there would be much of a performance difference. but honestly, who can say anything for sure unless we have the benchmarks
  12. i would go with the 9400f. i like knowing that i have options for upgrading to a 9700 in the future and get good performance. though the rx 5600xt would be a faster GPU.
  13. wired > wifi any day. I know standards dictate that 100M should be the cut off but i have seen cables that run longer than 130m and have no impact at all
  14. yeah figured as much. at this point i think i've got some emotional connection with the 4790. feels bad to let it go
  15. Any one still rocking the 4790? I wanna upgrade but i've already maxed out the lga1150 upgrade path. do i HAVE to change my mobo, cpu and ram or can the 4970 still hold up?
