Sadly, the i9's won't be that great of a performance increase for a game like DCS that isn't well coded for multi core. A better processor would be the 9700k as Intel have removed the hyper threading from that cpu in order to allow for up 200% turbo multiplier. Also unlike the extreme line of processors the i9-9900k doesn't have the quad channel memory, so half the channels. This to can factor into the i9-9900k not being as good as the 9700k

I run AIDA64 on a second monitor and have watched the cpu loads with my old i7-5820k and most of the time the half the threads are idle and there is only just brief spikes.
i9's are nice for batch processing or maybe future games that are well coded for multi threading, but I actually think for DCS itself it is better to go with the speed boosts.

So in some ways I am very curious to hear how his new system does.

Absolutely, the 9900K is out of the box faster with 2 cores @5 GHz to all 8 cores at (& HT) @ 4.7 GHz and yes for batch processing better, however for DCS alone (and most games) a 9700K might be better value. Still waiting for GPU or DCS to catch up. Especially in VR. Both 9900K and 9700K only have 2 memory channels. Interesting times.

Hey guys, I'm new to the forum. This is my first post, actually!

I've been reading through the hardware section a lot as I'm preparing to build a new computer here soon, with the sole purpose of it being to play DCS. I've been following this CPU discussion closely.

Right now I've got my build spec'd out with the i5-9600k 6-core (3.7 GHz and 4.6 Turbo), however, I've also considered the i7-9700k as well. It is about another $150 USD more though. Is it worth the $150 increase? Which do you suggest? For reference, here is more of what I'm thinking of going with at this point, all subject to change:

Also planning on either an RTX 2070/2080, or 1080 Ti. Will have 32GB RAM @3200. Mobo probably MSI MPG Z390 Gaming Edge.

Was hoping for 1440p @ 144 Hz (need a monitor as well), but I'm not really sure of the capabilities of this system to determine a monitor yet. VR sometime in the future, but not near future (I could beef up my system a little later on to support VR). Definitely TrackIR. I just want a system that plays DCS smoothly and as beautifully as possible.

Had some guys on another forum (they play DCS, might even be here!) give some helpful info, but thought I'd check with the members here as well. Thanks!



ETA: ....aaaaand didn't notice this CPU discussion was actually in a motherboard thread. I see the CPU thread just blow this one. Whoops, sorry!

Maybe now you can? When I built my new machine a year ago you couldn't. They update Windows constantly and are slowly changing all the control panels over to the new style.

One can easily disable HT in the bios. I have it disabled on my 4820k, and likely will on this board.
Quad channel memory can also make little more difficult achieving higher clock speeds.
One reason the Dark being designed for high performance, only has two ram slots.

I anticipate with the EVGA Z390 Dark being able to get my cores up pretty good on this 9900k, but we'll see soon enough. I am a somewhat adventurous sort.


Currently trying to get all my files needed backed up properly to my external drive in preparation and make sure nothing is forgotten. Fun fun lol.

I have upgraded to the same EVGA graphics card from EVGA. But I still have only a i7-2600k @ 4,5 GHz.

My graphics card is still being bored when playing in UHD resolution (only using around 50 % of its power).

It seems for me be that we have an CPU issue or a CPU Utilization issue....

Buying a 9900K and disabling hyperthreading is like spending $200 more than MRSP for a 9700k 0.o

Try process lasso to set DCS to run on physical cores instead imo. Be sure to exclude games/DCS from probalance.
