High specs, high benches, bad fps, what gives?

tprox
 Share

Hey everyone,

 

I've got a bit of a mystery on my hands my PC specs are as follows:

1080ti, Ryzen 7 2700x, 16gb DDR4 @3ghz, Samsung 970 evo M.2, Asrock Taichi x370 mobo, 3440x1440 G-Sync monitor
 

It benches at 135% in all categories on userbenchmark, 8500+ (80th percentile) on 3DMark Timespy extreme test. All of this and yet my frames are very underwhelming, especially in games like Ring of Elysium and Pubg. My friends are running 7th gen I7's and 1060's at normal 1440p with the same settings and getting much better frames then I am. Another oddity is that neither my CPU nor my GPU ever reach 100% usage in these games and I'm running reasonable temperatures on both.

 

Willing to try most anything at this point if folks have ideas, could something else be bottlenecking my system?

Is your ram dual channel?

7th gen is better than Ryzen

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.Skill Trident Z RGB - WD SN750 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G3 650W - dual booting Windows 10 and Linux - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - dark mode Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

- Do you have some sort of frame limiter turned on?

- Is your PC's power plan set to high performance?

- Is your RAM running in dual channel?

- Are you sure your friends are getting a better gaming experience than you, maybe they're just running the game at a lower resolution?

- What are CPU/GPU temps under full load?

Thanks for the response, yes the RAM is dual channel, and yes I know some of the 7th gen I7's are quicker then the 2700x but my point was that they are comparable and the rest of my system is superior specwise.

@r2724r16

- I've tried with and without G-Sync on and globally I have V-Sync turned off. The FPS isn't acting like it's limited it's floating around mid range numbers with large drops

- Yes it's set to high performance

- The ram is dual channel and is running that way

- I am playing on a wider aspect ratio then they are but I've tried down to 1980x1080 and especially in Ring of Elysium the frames are much worse then theirs

- I don't have those two numbers on me but if memory serves they were both around 65c under gaming load. I haven't tested a synthetic load yet though maybe that's something I should try tonight.

V-sync disabled, in PUBG on 3440x1440 I get around 60-70 with drops to 50. In Ring of Elysium I get 40-60 with drops to 30

That framerate seems normal for your resolution and graphics card (at least in PUBG):

That video in the context of PUBG is quite old, there's been a lot of optimization since then. The only reason I'm concerned is because of multiple friends performance being significantly better then mine. The bigger delta is definitely in Ring of Elysium, which makes me wonder if they just have an issue with the zen architecture or something.

How long have you had this PC?

I see that your PC's power plan is set to high performance. This is good. However, in the global settings of your Nvidia control panel, is your power management mode set to Prefer maximum performance?

 

As for fps drops in open world games, especially PUBG, this is completely normal. Just how open world games are. A benchmark will show this when the benchmark itself drops fps in certain areas of the benchmark.

Some pieces are about 4 years old (case, 1000w PSU) the rest is a year old or less

I'll ask them periodically about their frames when we are in the same area. But, no I haven't seen it in person.

I'm about 95% that my global setting is to prefer max perf but I'll definitely check that when I get home

True, it is a much bigger problem in Ring of Elysium then Pubg, I guess I'll just have to hope for better optimization.

Thanks for the help!

So you've owned this PC and gamed on it for 4+ years right?

Ring of Elysium System Requirements (Minimum)

  • CPU: Intel Core i3 2.4 GHz or better
  • RAM: 4 GB
  • VIDEO CARD: GeForce GTS 250 1 GB or better
  • DEDICATED VRAM: 1 GB

Ring of Elysium Recommended Requirements

  • CPU: Intel Core i5 2.4 GHz or better
  • RAM: 8 GB
  • VIDEO CARD: GeForce GTX 750 Ti 2 GB or better
  • DEDICATED VRAM: 2 GB

Only a 2.4 GHz i5 and a 2GB GTX 750 Ti is recommended for Ring of Elysium. And it's also in early access. Both of these things explain why your GPU and CPU are not being used to their fullest usage. Your 1080 Ti and Ryzen 7 are basically overkill for Ring of Elysium.

 

PUBG has similar results...

 

PUBG System Requirements (Minimum)

CPU: Intel Core i5-4430 / AMD FX-6300

RAM: 8 GB

VIDEO CARD: nVidia GeForce GTX 960 2GB / AMD Radeon R7 370 2GB

DEDICATED VRAM: 2 GB

 

PUBG Recommended Requirements

CPU: Intel Core i5-6600K / AMD Ryzen 5 1600

RAM: 16 GB

VIDEO CARD: nVidia GeForce GTX 1060 3GB / AMD Radeon RX 580 4GB

DEDICATED VRAM: 3 GB (4 GB AMD)

 

An i5 and a GTX 1060 3GB is recommended for PUBG. Your Ryzen 7 and 1080 Ti may not be overkill in PUBG but it's definitely more than you need. Any type of fps drops in PUBG is beyond normal. It's not exactly greatly optimized. These fps drops you are experiencing in both these games are most likely experienced by the majority of gamers playing the game in general.

 

If your friends are getting better fps than you with lower quality hardware, maybe they are gaming in 1080p or maybe they have optimized their PC a little more to gaming than you have. This is just a guess though, I could of course be mistaken. I'd ask your friends what resolution they are gaming in and if they remember doing any little things to optimize their PC towards gaming that maybe you have not done.

 

Things like disabling certain unnecessary things in Windows(especially in new Windows 10 updates) or disabling background processes in general. Disabling in-game overlays. Etc, etc. I mean I know you have a Ryzen 7 but little things like these can hinder performance to a certain degree. Especially games in early access.

and Pubg

Probably an optimisation issue with Ryzen CPUs. A buddy of mine runs a R5 1600x and also gets way less frames than me in many older or less optimized games despite running the same gpu (GTX 1070 each). I run an oc'd 4770k.

If anyone was following this topic I did finally find the fix. When I got the new CPU I also got a new SSD cloned my old boot SSD onto the new one. Long story short I read that a fresh Windows install can be important when installing a Ryzen CPU so I did a clean install and my performance has jumped 50-100% across the board.
