This is nothing new. GCN has always scaled better into higher resolutions.
Just like how RX580 gains more over the 1060 at 1440p.
And the 290X did over the 780Ti.

Good something like "vega clock for clock (or ipc) test gamer's nexus". Vega 56 and 64 are within like 0.1% performance at the same core and memory clock.

>From what I've been reading on Newegg comments undervolting the card basically eliminates all those problems.
But it does even more on Vega56...
You put Vega 56 and 64 both at 1050mv, 1600MHz core, 1000MHz memory, and they're going to perform the same and the 56 is going to use less power.

Also keep in mind the 56 has the same compute performance of the 1080Ti, so a fuckload which isn't its bottleneck in games. It's massive overkill for current games compared to its raster performance still. The 64 is an HPC/workstation card that they're pawning off on gamers when they shouldn't have.

I agree that Vega64 for gaming should be removed from OP, but you're basically false flagging.
Undervolting it still makes its perf/watt only like 20% worse than a 1080 which isn't that signficant.

DDR5 isn't coming to consumers until 2021-2023...

Yes, it's still AMD. Though I'd get 2400G if you can since the extra 4 threads is going to bottleneck a dGPU much less. It barely bottlenecks the gtx 1080 at 1080p with fast RAM. It's on sale for $150.
2400G with an OC and fast RAM plays virtually every game at 1080p on low at least 30fps, with more optimized games at 60+ and/or on medium settings.
One exception I can think of is AC Origins, where you'd need to play at ~900p for 30+.

Rumors have actually been that there'll be another Polaris refresh on 12nm this time that's at least 20% more performance.
Not that exciting. But could be more performance and lower power consumption for slightly cheaper.

How good it is probably depends on whether it's a new tape out or not. RX580 was not a new tape out.

CPU wise would it hold up if a dGPU was bought later down the line? Assuming I bought a decent dGPU at some point in the future, how long could I go before I'd need to upgrade the 2400G to a beefier CPU? Thanks anon.

Yeah, I know. Hoping more for the 2021 side. That should also be around the point where PCIe 4 goes mainstream and AM4 dies. In just can't imagine AMD introducing a new socket without DDR5 support.

With the current prices I ain't switching to DDR4. Well, that's easily said since I don't really have a reason tondo so anyways. My current system still does everything in throw at it with ease, even at 1440p. The only thing the 290 was struggling with was the witcher 3.

>> No.66621397

Check benchmarks for the 1300X, its quite similar. In CPU heavy games the 2x00G will let you run into a CPU limit if you put a decent card into the system. Every low budget CPU will. But as stated earlier, if younchange the cardnjust put in a used ryzen and sell the 2200G (or put it into an HTPC for your living room). Used 6 core ryzens are cheap.

>> No.66621410

Looks like Epyc 7nm and Vega 7nm already support PCIe and on the same socket.
So Zen2 next year may actually support PCIe4 on the lanes that are coming from the SOC.


You're overspending.
Clock-for-clock, Vega56 and Vega64 have the same performance in games. Get the Vega56 (not the MSI or Gigabyte ones) and undervolt and overclock it.
Vega64 just runs hotter, and has a higher chance of Samsung HBM. That's it.

Better to wait for 2300X/2500X in that case, but anon was looking for the dGPU to use until next generation of GPUs.

I mean, I know it can handle games fine today with a good dGPU, but if it's going to start choking on AAA games because of lackluster CPU performance in the near future, I feel like it'd be better to buy a stronger CPU and a weaker dGPU now and upgrade the GPU, rather than get 2400G, buy a dGPU when I have the money, and then have to upgrade my CPU next year or something because it can't handle games.

I already have a 520W Seasonic PSU, 8gb's of 3200mhz Ram, a cheap 120gb kingston SSD and an Mini ITX case. Should I cheap out on a cheap AM4 mini ITX mobo or invest a little more € into something substantially better?

>> No.66621478

We should also see newer AM4 boards with PCIe 4 then. GPUs don't really need it, so you could run them on PCIe 4 x8 and use the other lanes for I/O functionality I guess. AM4 only supporting one full speed M.2 slot wasn't that optimal of a choice, never understood why they did it. Yields can't have been that bad, they should've given the I/O hub more lanes. Or at least the option to do so and then bin the CPUs also in terms of available lanes.

ITX boards aren't any worse than larger form factors. If you find an ITX board that provides all the functionality you need a go for it.

It's B-die, so I guess so.
That 1060 is just a standalone, the real model would be the G1, and for the 580, the sapphire pulse or however it's called.
Also, for the PSU and case, the PSU prices are fucked here, I had to pay 95€ for something similar some time ago for my build (this one is for a friend), and the case, it's for my friend, so yeah, it's what he wants.

Form factor doesn't have much to do with how much spend. List the features you need, and get the board that has them in whatever form factor. If one form factor costs more than the other, they'll still perform the same. One consideration, however, is that, if I'm remembering correctly, the cheapest A-series AMD motherboards can't overclock, so it might be worth spending a little extra.

I will get the case from amazon.de so it will be like 50€ less.
The cheapest 1070ti is 480€ (a blower one). Getting cheaper ram that doesn't even achieve 3200/300 stable would be like less say 40€ less, a cheaper mobo would be again 40 or 60 less, and PSU, prices are fucked, the lowest I could go for a non modular one would be 60 being lucky and not getting a chink wicked shit.

That one would be 130€, barely 10€ less than the x470.
Would that shitty mobo really fuck the system? Like, the AB350 Pro4 should be good enough if paired with non b-die ram, I guess.
If I get all of that final build, it should be shittier for production but better for gaymes, and my friend prefers gaymer a little over production, but he will be still editing videos, tho.

A good PSU is going to have overcurrent protection. Check if yours does. Add a surge protector in front of it to be safe.

I suppose you'd get by with that board. Its VRMs are enough for a 6 core. But it doesn't have great user reviews which suggests poor reliability, memory compatibility, BIOS, so on.

Whatever, I found a reburb one for 60€, the "good" board. So yeah, I went with that and got a 1070ti that was 500€, a Zotac amp extreme ultimate whatever, one that looks like it's 2,5 slots and has three fans, so it should be good enough.

Never mind, hes just being an idiot and thinks that a better CPU will magically get him better graphics.

Uhh 2600X would have been better. Works on his same board. And he probably needs to OC his RAM.
8600k is bad value in general, especially when you already have an AM4 board.
A 2600X isn't going to bottleneck anything less than a 1080Ti at 1080p.

Should also do some investigation on what is limiting him in games instead of blindly throwing money at it.
I was getting lower FPS than I wanted in some indie games like Oxygen Not Included. I updated to latest BIOS (previous one was a year old), and overclocked RAM from 2133 CL15 to 2800 CL16, and I got more than a 40% FPS increase in that game on my 1600X.

There's also actually a lot of games that a 1400+RX480 should actually get around 144fps or close to it on as long as you're not playing them maxed when "high" settings look the same. Especially if you OC the RX480 a bit.

780ti is garbage and the 290 is too hot.

Then save the $100 on 2600X to put toward your 3700X or 4700X upgrade.

2400G with fast RAM and an OC will very slightly bottleneck a GTX 1080 in some cases. It gives you an idea of just how much performance you need to not bottleneck a GTX 1080 at 1080p: slightly more than a 2400G.
1400 is close to that. With fast RAM and and OC, it'll just occasionally bottleneck the 1080, and when it does not by much.

mining doesn't generally wear GPUs worse than any other usage, other than the fans.
If it works, it works. Just buy it with a method where you can dispute it if it's busted

NVMe have a use as a working drive for large movie files that you're moving around, writing, and deleting often. Maybe as a scratch disk for something like photoshop.
Those are the only two consumer/prosumer uses I can think for them and in 100+ pcbg threads I haven't heard of another legitimate and noticeable-improvement use.

With optane, on the other hand, you might notice the higher IOPS, lack of throttling, and lower latency. But you're still paying a fuckload more for I think a pretty slight performance increase.

The big problem here is that no benchmarker has really devised a test for SSDs that really shows how much or whether or not they really improve real world performance or not. Just synthetics. But subjectively, people that've tried StoreMi+Optane have said they do notice a slight improvement when they don't going from fast SSD to NVMe (other than transfer speeds on the last comparison).

My father has been using this PC for a decade easily now and still refuses to upgrade. 80% of what he does is play command and conquer games and the other 20% is email and youtube. I threw an ATI Radeon 4500 in there years back and ever since he's said the thing is fast as lightning even though using it is painfully slow to me because of the low rpm hard drive and lack of ram.

Not him but I'd get a B-Die kit to overclock it more than a CL16 one, a X470 Gaming Plus or a Strix X470-F (if you're near a Microcenter there's a bundle with the 2600X), a Caviar Blue (5400RPM are slow) and a modular PSU like the 620 EVO, Supernova G3 or Focus Plus Gold. You could get a True Spirit 140 or a SE-AM4 NH-U12S or NH-D15 to overclock the CPU more (the stock cooler is good for 4.1GHz on all cores, maybe more with XFR2)
This list would only make sense if you already have a 1440p 144Hz monitor, if you don't just drop the ti for a 1070, 1080 or Vega 56 (Freesync is cheaper) and get one

Get a 2200g (or if possible a 2400g for the extra threads) and the 1060 3gb. At 1080p the 3gb should be no issue. For the monitor try and get a decent IPS monitor for those more accurate and deeper colours.

Slightly but I'd still get the 2400G or the 2200G. The 3GB model has less CUDA cores so the VRAM limitation isn't the only downgrade from the 6GB one but you could try to get a RX 580 6GB if the price is decent. They perform very similarily, check which card runs the games you play better

>> No.66627678

RX 580 8GB*

>> No.66627692

2200G overclocked beats the 8100 while being cheaper.
No. Better off saving money and just getting a 1050Ti if they're cheap or using the 2400G and iGPU until you can get a cheaper, better dGPU.

Even turning down settings on the 3Gb, there are games that use more than 3GB of VRAM now days on medium.

>2400G is considerably more expensive to me than the 8100. The price diffrence would allow me to jump for the 1060 6gb and i may be wrong but that would be more beneficial for gaming?
Yep that's true. But a 2400G would also give you more headroom to upgrade GPU in the future. With decently fast RAM and a mild overclock, it barely even bottlenecks the GTX 1080 at 1080p.

Since Navi is expected to GTX 1080 performance or better for $250-350 next year, and the 1160 likely similar, the 2400G would make a good pairing with them for cheaper if you can use the iGPU and wait until then. Whereas the 8100 and 2200G are going to bottleneck more severely and only 4threads can cause stutter.

idk why people recommend that case. It sucks.

You mean 4Gb. But price is rarely decent. 8Gb is usually only 10% more.

6&7th gen are cool but don't support 8th gen, and that's apparently a huge performance difference that'll be noticeable even if I'll be upgrading from 2nd gen entry level i5, according to tech experts like linus tech tips (tm).

What do I do?

Also how are 7th gen mobile cpus? Would it be performance-wise a bad idea to buy a small mobo with a soldered 7th gen u series cpu? as they come in a cpu+mobo combo then they're the same price as a new 8th gen mitx.
