New System for VR

Hello everyone,

 

I am thinking of a total new upgrade for my system, since the new 3000 graphic cards are on the market. I will wait what AMD has to offer, but for sure I will go for a new graphic card.

 

Since the CPU can be the bottleneck at DCS, I am wondering what corresponding CPU you would recommend to take1?

 

Would the Intel Core i7-10700K be a fine choice, is it too much or too less? Will the 8 cores be useful for DCS? Of course I will have to chance mainboard etc. then also.

 

My current specs are below...

 

Cheers, MadMonty

8700K did well by me. 10700K that I now have is doing well too.

 

But ultimately it comes down to how much your budget is. Get the best processor you can at your budget.

 

Apparently, some leaked benchmark is showing Ryzen finally beating Intel in single core performance. But it's leaked so who the hell knows.

 

In technology, you can wait forever for the next big thing. But one month isn't that long to way for Navi/AMD releases. So I would wait to see what happens there.

i suspect it will be a perf improvement, however, only because of the higher overclock potential , DCS will only use 3 core really, or two mostly in single player. a lot depends on how over clocked your current CPU is and where your current bottle neck is, i would say its an even split between your CPU and GPU ... so investigate and see

Core i5-10600K would have just as good single core performance for DCS as i7.

I am running on a stable 5.0 GHz (watercooled).

 

So, since DCS will only use 2-3 cores and having 4 of the right now, I am wondering, if a i10700k with 8 cores will bring such an improvement. You guys are writing, that a i10700k may have a better OC potential, but do I get it significantly higher then 5.0 GHz? Or is it not only about the frequency?

 

In terms of budget I could even afford a i10900k, but it should be reasonable resp. corresponding to a GTX 3080.

Likely a very small improvement... 4% raw and maybe a slightly better oc 16% not my numbers but https://cpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Intel-Core-i7-7700K-vs-Intel-Core-i7-10700K/3647vs4070

 

Overall I'd look at the single core and dual core pperf, which would likely be around a 10%-12% improvement.

 

So the question is would that be worth it to you?

 

Similar but very slightly lower numbers for the i5 10600k

Yes, exactly.

Quite small improvement per buck. If cost is not an issue, get the best, highest clocking CPU.

If cost is, use the money on some other performance inceasing part and get more gain per buck.
