    Well to me that looks like you're at an average of about 45% usage per thread (in the more jagged part of the graph, first half before you paused the game) rather than the 60-100% that you say. That's still good CPU usage though and impressive in the number of cores it can use.

    It is a awesome CPU intensive game. I’ve read of people with 9700K’s and they get GPU usage drops, all cores hammered at 80-100%.

    When I had a 8086K it would hit 100% on all 12 threads at times during intensive multiplayer and I would see GPU usage fall about 5-10%.


    I will get some better screenshots of when I am walking around the open world. That was indoors, and they play quite a few mini cutscenes back to back with all of that lower usage. And apparently the cutscenes are pre-recorded 60FPS for PC. So, usage would drop quite a bit.

    This is such a fun game. This is 1080P 240HZ with my 2080Ti, and 7980XE at 4.80Ghz, DDR4 4000Mhz CL15. Working all (36) threads like a boss!


    Also, this is just walking around. For some reason when Mule’s start chasing you, or if your building something even more CPU usage happens. No action is really going on in these screenshots. I am just getting started in the game.

    And this is 2560x1440P 165HZ with my 2080Ti, and 7980XE at 4.80Ghz, DDR4 4000Mhz CL15
    Still working all (36) threads like a boss!

    So, at 1080P my 7980XE averages 64% usage per thread across (36) of them. At 1440P this drops to 51% average usage across (36) threads.

    So, I am curious as to how this works. Am I right saying that if you only had an 8/16 processor, you would be Literally slamming it to almost full capacity? And this is the only game that could actually do that???

    So how high can y'all OC the 7980/9980/10980X series for 1, 2, 4 core loads?

    I was hoping to do something like this:

    1-Core 4.9Ghz
    2-Core 4.8Ghz
    3/4-Core 4.7Ghz
    5-8 Core 4.6Ghz
    9-18 4.3Ghz

    Is this something that can be done? My older CPUs don't like being too far apart from single and multi core but I heard these newer CPUs are different.

    Death Stranding surprisingly has low CPU requirements according to the published required specs: https://www.systemrequirementslab.com/cyri/requirements/death-stranding/13762

    It also performs well on low core CPUs, and by looks of it doesn't show much performance benefit beyond 6c/12T CPUs:
    https://www.overclock3d.net/reviews...c_performance_review_and_optimisation_guide/4

    And this one showing no benefit beyond 6c/6T CPUs:
    https://www.dsogaming.com/pc-performance-analyses/death-stranding-pc-performance-analysis/#:~:text=Death Stranding also performs incredibly,and an average of 105fps.&text=It's also worth noting that,require a high-end GPU.

    It could be your fast & low latency RAM is synergising with the CPU and allowing for the CPU to be pushed further to higher framerates and thereby increasing CPU usage by allowing for a higher framerate (you've got 200fps at some points which is not the case in the reviews), but I'm not really sure about that. I find it surprising it's using so much of your CPU given these reviews I've linked. Strange!

    Hey you can overclock each individual core and set voltage per each core. No need to drop the frequency for more cores being active. So you can overclock each core at its own voltage and frequency individually.

    Run a heavy load take note of each cores temperatures, and overclock from there.


    So, you can run your hot cores slower, and the cold cores faster, and the best cores the fastest.


    I run 4.8Ghz on my 7980XE fairly easily on all (18) cores.

    Running 4.6Ghz, is like running it stock lol.

    10980XE is better silicon. But, it’ll run a little warmer than a delidded 7980XE.

    I run 4.6Ghz at 1.203V or 4.8Ghz at 1.286V.

    ^ You should do better than that being an 10980XE.

    That is very interesting. My performance does seem pretty good. I run no DLSS, and I do not use the other scaling options either.

    Performance is adequate for a 240HZ panel at 1080P with no DLSS at all, using a 2080Ti on maximum detail settings.

    Looking over that review you posted again, my performance at 1440P looks better than their performance at just 1080P.

    My 2080Ti FE is slightly overclocked, but it’s still air cooled and on the stock bios. So nothing crazy by any means. Running in the very low 1,900’s sustained usually.

    I am still waiting on my waterblock to arrive so I can run a steady 2.1Ghz+

    I have double checked my graphics settings. DLSS is indeed off, it’s just not needed.

    Also, looking at their task manager usage it says 67%. But all (16) threads of the 9900K look to be maxed out to 100%. I dunno how accurate that may be though. You mentioned something about task manager reporting wrongly. So maybe?
