Add to this that even once its trained it will probably only look on par with the image otherwise upscaled (as per HWUB BFV video where the upscaled to 4K image was very close to native 4K yet DLSS was miles off).
Checker-boarding (Horizon Zero Dawn as an example on the PS4 Pro) and upscaling...
Judging from experience on my wife's 2700x based system the different in real world usage between 2800Mhz C16 (overclocked 2400Mhz ram), 3000Mhz C15 and 3200Mhz C14 is relatively small.
It will probably show up in benchmarking terms, and I won't argue there isn't a difference, but in actual...
1440p 120-144Hz* with G-sync for me.
I made the mistake of having my test bench hooked up via HDMI to the same monitor (limited to 60hz no G-sync). Completely moved my desk around so I can quickly move the DP cables between systems.
Sounds pretty similar to my experience on both platforms (8700K & 2700X) - Install memory, enable XMP, check everything is as it should be and then.. enjoy.
Meanwhile my other Ryzen system gets a little more.... UEFI playtime. Saying that is does look like this:
Or you know, you could just enable XMP within the bios on the AMD board??
I did this on both of my Ryzen systems and presto, magic! RAM speed and timings matching the XMP profile....
Amazingly these steps also had to be followed on my Intel system as well..
The result... Identical memory...
Also at the time it had no hardware based resolve MSAA ability built into the pipeline. It had to do it all via shaders which completely crippled it in benchmarks that used any amount of MSAA. IIRC this was fixed when the 3870 launched but it was still lacking absolute grunt as per your post.
There are a few ways, just depends on how in depth you want to go:
- Raise the back of the laptop up by 1-2". This will aid airflow getting to the fans.
- Run with a laptop cooler. Depending on the laptops design these will work well or do bugger all (unless heavily modified).
