Benchmarks compared to Real Gaming

Hey everyone,

I've got my latest build up and running, this isn't my first PC I've built, but my first gaming PC, and I'm certainly having a good amount of fun learning about and experimenting with overclocking/undervolting my GPU. 

 

There are quite a few bench marks out there, I have Cinebench, 3D Mark and Unigine, those seem to be the most popular ones I see talking about, I also have the MSI Kombustor though I don't see many people using that.  What is considered a "decent score" on these benchmarks that would (if it even does) translate to actual game performance?  While I do enjoy the tinkering and experimenting that comes with the benchmarking software, I did build this rig to PLAY games haha.  

 

On my first run through of Time Spy with my current settings I got a 7086.  Is it worth my time in terms of real world gaming performance to keep tweaking that, or am I at a good spot?

 

If its helpful:

CPU = Ryzen 1700x - Overclocked to 4ghz

RAM = DDR4 running at 2400 (just set the XMP profile to match the speed the RAM is advertised at, haven't got into OC of RAM yet)

GPU = Sapphire Nitro+ Vega 56 - I don't remember all my wattman settings at the moment, but after OC and UV I believe it's running at 1675 and the RAM is at 800.

in essence, benchmarks dont relate to real gaming performance directly in any way, but they are a good tool for reviews because they are a very good tool for comparing hardware.

 

and if you want to know if your current setup is any good, launch a game ;)

That's very true.  I have noticed a much better gaming experience though with the settings I've come across by using the benchmarking software to dial in my settings.  So there is something to it.  I'm probably in search of something that doesn't exist honestly.  haha

Popular benchmark software is important for troubleshooting.

 

 For example. When Pasal launched I bought a GTX 1080 in the first week. It ran most of my games badly with stuttering and low frame rate.  I ran the usual benches and found that the scores were in line with my hardware I had. I just had the bad luck of owning a lot of games that were having driver issues.

 

It has been the same with RTX. The bench tests tell me that my card is performing well.

 

Popular game benches are important as well. I use Assassin's Creed Origins, Metro Last Light & Middle-Earth Shadow of Mordor. I use these when I buy new GPUs & CPUs to see what improvement I get over my old hardware.

They are decent for a stability test, but if it doesn't crash in any of the games i play then it's good enough. 

 

Some actual games good for stress, monster hunter, ashes of benchmarks, ACU/ACO, both middle earth games. ME andromeda. Farcry 5's decent too.
