GenjoKoanWhy am I here, then? To sing the praises of x299 and 10920X.
jasoncodispotiSomething to keep in mind is that Flight Simulator 2020 is currently using DX11 which does not scale well past x4 cores/threads. Low core count and high frequency are going to be much better for improving performance on that game/sim. You could possibly see a decrease in performance going with a higher core count processors depending on per core performance vs what you currently have, just have to do some research.
ZoranCSpeaking of 10920X what are your temperatures like, please?
USMC7312True. I also fly on Prepare 3d v5 which is running D12 and it kills my PC. That is a greater prompt for me to upgrade right now. Plus X.Plane 11.5 just released with Vulcan. So I am just trying to stay ahead of the game.
USMC7312HiIt’s actually CPU & GPU upgrade time. My primary activity is Flight Simulation and the new Flight Simulator 2020, P3D, and X-Plane are being pushed to their limits. Unfortunately, I have not had time to properly review the new CPU’s. I am considering these two new CPU’s.1. $768 - Intel Core i9-9940X Skylake X 14 Core2. $849 - Intel Core i9-10940X Cascade Lake 14 CoreCURRENT BUILD:CPU: Intel 7800x Skylake Motherboard: EVGA X299 Dark
