I'd personally go with the x570 so you can take advantage of PCIe-4 SSDs/NVMEs....

Are you sure your test is accurate? I'm pretty sure those numbers are either not possible

Have no idea what you mean. Tested with Presentmon64 and used the ingame counter...

I wouldn't expect much if any increase in fps in DCS because of how poorly it utilizes many cores. In the future, maybe. But that's a big maybe. I would expect 6 cores to be plenty for the life of the motherboard.

Some games may benefit from the extra cores right now, but you have to ask yourself how much you want to spend and on what. If you currently use a gtx 1060, that indicates to me that your budget isn't unlimited. So my suggestion to you is spend less on CPU and more on GPU. 3600 (without X) might be best value.

"Presentmon 64" ? I have no idea what that is , but fear it might be corrupting your results . Those numbers do sound insane at 1440p ....

Perhaps a DCS test without would be welcomed by many (including myself) .

I agree. I have same CPU as OP but with GTX 1070 and it still ok with DCS. I once was on the brink to update my CPU to Ryzen but after doing my research from various webs and ytube videos I postpone my intention.

I'm probably gonna move from my 2700 to a 3900X. A potential 33% more performance in DCS should lead to more stable frames in VR. As far as the 3600 vs the 3700X, the 3700X will offer 200Mhz more in the boost clock, which will likely provide some improvement. Given my experience with a 2700 non-X, I'd say go for an X model if its in the budget. Also OC3D's review claimed that the single NVME port directly attached to the CPU gets full PCIe4.0 performance on X470. Not that it'll net much real performance in game loading DCS.

I up grade from a Ryzen 1600 to a RZ 3600x today so I let you know. Actually it was just delivered.

3000 series has much improved single core performance.

The Ryzen 1600 was a "good" upgrade from my previous i5-3750k @ 3.9GHz

I will be reusing my GA AX370-Gamang_K7 + FlareX 3200

450 or 470 makes good sense for up-to 3600/3700

3700/3700x and above MIGHT be better served by the 570 chipset. Their not as expansive as I had expected them to be.

Nice.

Also any benchmark for 3900x would be appreciated if anyone has it
