RTX 2080 bottleneck

KDBgames
 Share

I bought a RTX 2080 recently. Super happy with the upgrade so far, however. I'm pretty sure my 8GB of DDR4 2133MHz RAM is bottlenecking my system.

 

I know, I know. I should have spent some money on some more higher quality RAM by now, but I've never really experienced any problems untill now. Before this I had a GTX 1060 6GB, I always thought my GPU reached it's limit before the RAM got full. Now here's the problem. I've watched a lot of benchmarks before my purchase, so I know what it's capable off. Suprise suprise. I started up Final Fantasy XV and the framerate didn't reach what the benchmark showed. It runs 50fps average with a lot of stutters while the benchmark showed between 70 and 90. I'm pretty sure my RAM is bottlenecking the hecc out of this game. Then I booted up Battlefield V and low and behold, it never reached the benchmarked 120fps. I got around 60-80 frames. 

 

Point is, I'm pretty sure upgrading my RAM will boost the fps. But are there any other upgrades I can do to get the best performance?

 

My rig:

MSI Z370-A PRO
OC Intel Core i7-8700K @ 3.70GHz 
OC MSI Nvidia Geforce RTX 2080 Gaming X Trio 8GB
8GB DDR4 RAM (my biggest sin, working on it)
240GB Kingston SSD (OS)
3TB Toshiba HDD
1st. 27" Acer XG270HU 2560x1440 75Hz Monitor
2st. 24" AOC G2460VQ6 1920x1080 75Hz Monitor

 

P.s. is it me or is the framerate in the European stage of Destiny 2 really unstable. At times I get between 60 and 80 and other times it never goes below 100 frames.

 

P.s.s I'm looking into replacing my RAM with a 16GB 3000MHz Corsair stick

That's the real problem. The 8700k can run way faster than that, try 4.7GHz at least. See if you can make it to 5GHz.

Still get the faster RAM though, that'll help too.

No problems there. Go for it.

If you're willing you could upgrade that Kingston SSD to a Samsung one.

I've just bought a Crucial MX500 250GB so I'll let you know how good it is and I'll post the read/write speeds here. It's going to be delivered by the 29th Nov tho so it might take a bit lol

The MSI bios and software just has an ON button. So I pressed that and leaved it at that. Since I bought a new PSU for the GPU something in me should've woken me up about it. Thanks for the heads up, I'll look into it.

if you are gonna replace your ram, get something thats faster, or u might be in for a disappointment, but anything above the current kit is an improvement. CPU oc to 4.5+ would help too depending on your cooler, i'd do 2 sticks instead of 1.

I'm actually thinking of getting a Samsung EVO 500GB M.2 drive. They're not that expensive anymore over here in the Netherlands.

That's probably a better bet than getting a Crucial MX500. I'd go for it.

I'm going for 1 stick at the moment so I can upgrade to 64GB in the future.

64GB is way overkill. Are you sure you need that much?

It is, but I'm currently studying Film and I'm thinking of becoming an editor. So I'd like to have the option without swapping all the sticks.
