    Awesome!! I was running a 1660Ti on mine for a little while, pretty rough lol. Just traded another 7980XE I had for a 2080Ti FE. So, I’m good to go now!

    I have a beast again!

    Nice one, thanks for testing. Yeah, so that screenshot is showing that it really only needs 1.2GB less than your 10GB figure you were posting before. Does the amount change much from the 9.4GB as you play the game in different parts of the game....so for instance does it mostly show 10GB pretty stable in GPUz and then in your new MSI Afterburner perhaps the real amount of VRAM required fluctuates up & down around the 9.4GB you've got in your screenshot and by how much (roughly)?

    Did you find a deal on your 10980XE?

    Just started playing Death Stranding. The game is very easy to run GPU wise, and extremely well optimized. It uses all (18) and all (36) threads from 60-100% on average.

    For some reason, MSI Afterburner will not update their app to support more than 16/32 processors. Why? I don’t know.. The 7980XE has only been out for over 3 years lol.


    Utilization ranging from 63-100% on every single thread! That is amazing. I have never seen a game use a CPU like this.

    The game runs like butter, and I just cant believe it uses my 7980XE at 4.8Ghz as good as it does! Absolutely amazing.

    Anyone know how to fix MSI AB to see 18 cores? Or am I just stuck using the HWinfo running in the back ground and running with rivatuner?

    Anyways, whoever hasn’t tried it. Death Stranding is pretty interesting. Be ready for your CPU to get bent over backwards though. Even at 2560x1440. Probably the most CPU intensive game I’ve ever seen.

    I didn’t realize it was even CPU intensive until I glanced at my utilization. (36) threads hitting up to 100%.

    Wow, who says a 7980XE isn’t a great gaming CPU?

    If you're using Windows Task Manager to view CPU usage I noticed it over reports actual CPU usage. A program like HWInfo would show you the proper utilisation per core, but the graphic of Windows Task Manager overestimates the usage by quite some amount. Just in case you're using Windows Task Manager, becasuse that does seem like a high CPU usage for such a many thread CPU.

    $989.58 plus tax. Brand new in box.

    Kinda thinking if I should just cancel both and get 5950x +AsRock X570M instead along with a 980 Pro SSD lol


    $1099.57 + tax for X299 Micro2/10980XE

    $1,132.97 + tax for X570M/5950X/980 Pro

    Or just stick with my 4930K until Q4 2021 lol

    wow it was only $809.99 at MC.... https://www.microcenter.com/product...ga-2066-boxed-processor_Hatchfeed?storeid=101

    It uses every single thread. This is the only game I’ve ever seen this my 7980XE actually use every thread available! I’m blown away. It knows how to use a CPU!

    MSI AB only shows 32 threads. But, I have since configured it with HWinfo showing all 36 threads, and it is the same thing.

    usage is usually 60-100% walking around the open world. Never seen this in my life. But hey, what a well optimized game. It’s butter smooth.

    GPU usage is always 98-99% and I’m averaging around 120-160 FPS at 1440P maxed out.

    I minimized the game, so it took the load off, but, if you look at the maximum usage. Just about every core has hit 100% lol.


    It is stupid that I have to use HWinfo to see all 36 threads. I’m just flabbergasted that MSI AB cannot take 2 seconds to update these CPU’s in to their own applications. Why the maximum is 32 threads is beyond me.
