For now, let me disagree, but you piqued my interest, so I'll test it later.
You can disagree, but that just makes you wrong! I have a 3090 so I can test it without any gpu bottlenecks and im telling you, RT puts a major strain on CPUs.
Games are not nearly always GPU bottlenecked. Frankly, im not even sure what that means. They are gpu bottlenecked when your GPU is the bottleneck. There WILL come a point, that unless you upgrade your CPU, it WILL become the bottleneck cause you upgraded your GPU. That point will come sooner with a slower CPU, meaning that you can keep a faster CPU for 1 generation more. I don't understand why this is even contestable, it's just purely based on logic and match.That's not how it works. Games are nearly always GPU bottlenecked. They're only not when you have an extremely weak CPU or you use extremely low graphics settings. In other scenarios, the CPU is mostly responsible for your FPS dips, which you may or may not notice (or care about) depending on several factors.
30% is irrelevant, because it isn't perceptible beyond acceptable performance levels (60 or 78 FPS), but it isn't enough to make an unplayable experience more enjoyable (20 or 26 FPS). I usually say that if an upgrade doesn't give you at least 2x performance, then it's not worth it (unless you make money on it).
I still don't understand why you think that the 7700 is 30% faster than the 3100. The review that I linked shows a 7% difference between the 3100 and the 7700K in gaming with 40% more power consumed.
Im not sure which review you are talking about, gnexus has a review of the 3100 and it shows - in non gpu bound games, a 30% difference in performance between the two cpus
THANK YOU. That exactly proves my point. It took them 3 years and a 50% price increase to give us 100% increase in gaming performance and a 30% increase in multithreaded performance. That's worse than the the worst years of Intel. An apt comparison is between an i5 4670k and an i7 8700k. 3 years apart and a 50% price difference, they have way bigger differences than the amd parts have with each other. AMD is worse than the worst years of Intel, LOLI'll just drop it here
This is a benchmark session, as usual, where we'll be taking an old Ryzen 5 1600 system and upgrade it with the Ryzen 5 5600 to see what's what on gaming.www.techspot.com
