    Yep, Intel dominates the per core battle with raw frequency. If you need serious multi threading (>10 cores), then AMD becomes a serious option and at a certain point is the clear and logical choice.

    JayZTwoCents just updated their 2020 rig to a 9900ks precisely for that reason. They were starting to see bottlenecking in games that were CPU capped.



    I run a 9900k @ 5.2 that passed all my stability criteria *on air* no problem. For my needs, I don't see an AMD chip that will top my 4-8 core performance.

    You can keep flinging tons of cores at the performance crown problem, but up to a certain point, actual performance per core is the primary criteria....and yes, this is where overclocking shines, but even without overclocking, the 9900ks @ 5ghz stock all cores is a monster unless your workflow requires a very large amount of cores.

    Anyone have a guess at the timeframe for NH57ADS availability? I figured we wouldn't see anything until at least Q2 but I'm hoping for some dates or announcements sooner than later.

    Interesting video and another proof that for utmost performance in CPU heavy games an Intel 5+ GHz CPU will still be king.

    Your 5.2 GHz aren't too shabby either!

    Plenty of games are CPU bottlenecked and GPU bottlenecked depending on the action in the game.

    Far cry new dawn

    Kingdom come deliverance

    Battlefield 5

    I have tested all of these with my CPU at default 4.3Ghz, and at 5.1Ghz. I can literally see the higher GPU utilization at 5.1Ghz. With the exception of BF5 as I can only run 5Ghz in that title due to AVX.

    ^ A 9900K doesn’t help at all in any of these titles, even though I use to think it would. But these games pretty much perform the same with 12 threads or 16 threads. And only the clock speed of the cpu improves performance greatly!

    My GPU utilization drops are not to bad due to me only having a GTX1080, but I can still see as low as 82-88% GPU usage if the CPU gets really really hammered with a lot of explosions and action going on. More slower cores are not going to help me at all.

    When you get to higher resolutions like 1440p and up that goes away a fair bit on the CPU side.
