I also noticed the stutter fest on the Witcher 3, and some odd mouse movement even though I didn't turn on mouse acceleration.

Played FF VII Remake to that point where I'll need to get to the Shinra building. Gotta love how much this follows the original FF VII with just some added content, yet not being 100% copy of the original in every story-based aspect.

I also played through the original once again this year so it's easy to notice differences.

4090, GPU 97-99% usage at 4K.

"CPU bound".
There are resolutions other than 4K. I believe that is what AusWolf was referring to. And yes, Witcher 3 at any resolution can be very CPU intensive at times, especially the new update.

So I just bought TinyTopia, a SimCity like game that take a weird twist, It's like playing a board game.

I'll see how CPU intensive it is when I get home from work. I've got a 7700X and a 1080p monitor. ;)

Not anymore, at least for me. :laugh:
Sure there are. Just because you have a 4K display doesn't mean you can't select lower resolutions to play games at. 1080p scales perfectly on a 4K, for example. EDIT: The reason I say this is simple, not all games can run at 4K with good(solid 60+) framerates.

Of course, I'm not implying that this will slow to a crawl, just that the CPU does get pegged from time to time.

I have a feeling that my 6750 XT will soil itself from all the RT goodness first, but we'll see. :)

Maybe. Have you considered running at 720P with RT on? Believe it or not, it looks very good and will give playable frame-rates. Needs a strong CPU though, so you have that covered.

I haven't played at 720p since... I can't even remember when.

As someone who has a 4k screen I can say for certain that even though 1080 should scale perfectly in practice it doesn’t. 1440p seems to better for some reason. I don’t know why, perhaps it’s windows inserting it scaling into the mix or some else I’m unaware of.

Well it is, you cant get a lot more than 60fps from a 5900x, and that's when the game isnt choking up and stuttering all over (seems the stuttering might be less frequent with nvidias overlay stuff disabled)
And here's the reason it's d3d11on12 >>

Do you have motion blur and blur turned off?

Turn them both on, that took away the stuttering for me.

I'm still GPU bound at 1080p with RT and DLSS on quality.

I fell into XCOM2 recently (free by EPIC) and it got it`s grasp on me strongly.
Playing at 1440P on a 4K monitor with medium-high settings and the 970GTX cap at 75% power make it a silent joy.

I've avoided the turn-based strategy genre since I began gaming, but as I'm now officially 'an old git' I find myself being drawn a bit more to these types of games. Xcom in particular always looks excellent whenever I have seen some gameplay. I must take the dive at some point and stop being such a wuss :laugh: Oh and by the way guys....
