That’s what I’m currently doing.
I know that the intel is definitely better now, and with the same number of cores will probably be a little faster even if Vulkan spreads the load.
For all that, the AMD route is a good deal cheaper, allowing an upgrade to the next generation VR solution when it arrives (I don’t believe it’s here yet).

can you explain more? how does it kill stutter?
is it because of the access time? the asset being loaded, loads in 0.003 ms instead of 0.0035ms?

or is it because of the drivers? with the neme drivers being more efficient than the sata drivers?

i’d have to see some test results on this first.

the 95w TDP is when all cores run @ 3.6GHz !



195w fits a lot better

You can get the 9900k to 5.1-5.2 GHz, but it generates so much heat and really needs high-end cooler and PC case with good airflow. I have Cooler Master 360R AIO in Phanteks Evolv X case and overclock mine to 5.0 GHZ. CPU temp can get to 83C when stressed with benchmarks, probably approaching 90C with higher clockspeed.

In my opinion, NVMe drives are no better than SATA SSDs for games.
I have DCS OB installed on my 970 NVMe and release version installed on my 850 SATA, and I cannot tell the difference in load times etc.
Now, when it comes to system stuff etc., the NVMe 970 wins hands down!

Exactly !


Tho there are still things in system management landscape which are IPC limited by a single core, just been there when I did my reinstall and Acronis
12.5 UL recovery process. Sometimes the limit was 1 core at 5G full tilt.
Then, nothing helps but 5.1 or 5.2...if it matters at all for such tasks, you defo dont want a borderline OC for a Recovery Task ...or maybe yes

What about RAM? With a new build I have lined up, I thinking of installing 2x 8GB DDR4 4000Mhz Corsair sticks. I’m assuming there’d be an increase of some sort noticed since I’d be coming from currently using 16GB DDR3 at 1600Mhz?

@OP I would look at graphics card the 680 might be a tad limiting 16GB should be usable for basic missions without much else running maybe see how you go before adding more ram.

YMMV

<edit>

Not much to see here and not much different from 32GB RAM.

The guy already replaced his 680 >.< But looking at your screenshots. Seeing the lack of hard faults I'm now curious what that would look like with a system managed page file. Flying the Instant Action for the Hornet over Caucasus - 8v8 ACM, I watched my hard faults climb 600/s while in flight. So seeing the kit of ram I currently have installed drop to $134 on sale, I ordered another kit last night. You have almost no hardfaults at all on your rig, which with page file disabled makes sense. I am curious what that screenshot would look like with your page file running system managed while flying dcs. But.. as long as I don't run into any issues installing the second kit I'll be able to mostly answer that myself by monday/teusday hopefully. FYI - I'm trying to eliminate an issue with steam vr loading screen popping up while in flight, which that hornet instant action mission likes to induce. I'm hoping it's a lack of ram causing the dropped frames. I'm feeling pretty good about it honestly, given the way my system is hard faulting when running DCS. I'll know sometime after the weekend.

I swear Newegg knows exactly how to get me to spend money sometimes.
