World of Warcraft gpu bound at 1080p rtx 2080

Ebony Falcon

So I saw someone ask on Facebook about buying a 2080 or the ti but they only play wow at 1080p 

he has a rx 480 which as far as I’m concerned is more than enough for wow

and a 2700x (I assume stock ) with 8gb ram

 

he is getting dips to 40 FPS 

 

now to me that hat means cpu bottle neck as it’s a single threaded game on a engine from forever ago

 

but the whole community jumped on me and said I was a fool and he needed a 2080ti ? 

 

What the fuck am I missing ? I don’t understand 

-13600kf 

- 4000 32gb ram 

-4070ti super duper

It's not single-threaded anymore and the engine has been updated quite heavily over the years.

WoW is a horrible game for GPUs as it is heavily dependent on single core performance. RX 480 is 100% fine.

it only uses multiple cores if you are on windows 10 WITH DX12 enabled. Otherwise its still single threaded.

My nephew plays & streams (using SLOBS) WoW on a GTX 970 paired with an Fx 6300 + 16GB RAM. 45-80 Fps.

Just throwing this out for more context.

well, first and formost WoW is not a game that will run at high fps without high compromises. The design won't allow it, nothing to do about it. But if you want to help it you need a strong per-core performance, which Ryzen CPUs don't necesary shine the brightest. As people said, you can help with overclock and fast ram (3Ghz+) but still the upper limit will be the graphic settings, even more when a lot of people are close, since by design the movement of other players in a MMORPG is bound to a single thread (a.k.a a single core), so no matter how much is the engine optimized or how beefy is your GPU you will be limited buy that simple design that rules the MMO genere. (It's a game design 101 easy enough to google or explain for any developer).

 

You will dip a lot in a crowded area and crowd (not A.I, but real players) related options. Shadows should also affect the same thread since they are input related.

When this kind of scenarios are in place, the common recomendation is Intel CPUs since they have unmatched per-core performance. Not a whim, just hard facts, Ryzen is awesome but it has it's own weaknesses.

Blizzard did announce a patch for WoW that improved Ryzen performance by up to 35%. This was a rather recent patch and is likely not shown in most benchmarks due to the benchmarks coming out well before the patch.
