Today we have already had a chance to see the long-awaited GeForce RTX 3080 reviews, and our own material described in detail all the features of the new architecture and the new Nvidia 3D card.
Now you can go deeper into details. For example, which CPU is better for the new card? The specialists of TechSpot resource compared the results of RTX 3080 with Core i9-10900K and Ryzen 9 3950X processors, and the colleagues from TechPowerUp resource took Ryzen 9 3900X and added Core i9-9900K. What are the results?
If we are talking about 4K resolution as the main target for Nvidia innovation, there is no significant difference between four CPUs. The differences are 1-2%, the acceleration also doesn’t contribute to any noticeable growth of fps. If you look in detail for each game, that is, projects where the difference is slightly more tangible, but often it is still a maximum of only about 3-5%. The exception – Anno 1800, which behaves very strange: in the case of CPU Ryzen indicator in the game is always the same (52 fps), regardless of the resolution, in the case of Intel solutions, the indicator changes, but very little, and it is always higher than the system with Ryzen.
In any case, RTX 3080 requires a very high-performance processor, but at 4K resolution there’s not much difference in which one. Actually, even in Full HD the average difference between AMD and Intel solutions is only about 10% in favor of the latter, but at absolute figures far beyond 150 f/s this difference hardly makes any practical sense for anyone.
