Personally, I'd wait on on reviews and benchmarks to come out first. Based on early information I've seen the i9-10900K is going to have 10 cores/20 threads this time, but that still puts it two short of the 3900X. Depending on the CAD work you may still benefit from those two extra cores, I'm not sure how much virtualization likes multi-threaded performance or not so I can't comment there. We don't know yet how much of a performance uplift the 10th generation will see in single-core performance either and if it would bridge that core/thread gap. Also keep in mind that while we don't have a release date, AMD is working on the fourth generation of Ryzen CPUs. Based on what we know about their 4000-series laptop processors, the desktop CPUs should see another performance upgrade over the 3000 series. We don't know how much but that's the expectation. If it were me, I'd wait until both new generations of CPU were on the market so I could compare their performance and see if it's really worthwhile to upgrade.
That does sound odd. Personally speaking, I have a 3700X and have had no issues gaming with it, my experience is very smooth. I have it paired with a 2080 Super, but unless you're trying to push the 2060 Super past its limits it shouldn't be causing any issues either. What kind of motherboard and RAM are you running, and are you utilizing XMP to run the memory at its full speeds? Ryzen CPUs really like fast memory, and it can have some pretty noticeable performance impacts. The only caveat being that even XMP can sometimes be a little unstable. What other fixes did you try?
Thank you. One thing I'll point out on that link is that turning V-Sync on is the exact opposite of what I'd do. V-Sync is notorious for causing stuttering problems even though it's supposed to prevent them. I would keep that setting off, and if V-Sync is on in any of your in-game settings, I would turn them off as well.If you have a Freesync or G-Sync monitor, those technologies are different than the V-Sync settings mentioned in that guide and they should help with stuttering, but your mileage may vary. I would try turning Freesync/G-Sync on and off and see how that affects things. If you're still getting stuttering with the RAM running at the default speeds, I would try turning on XMP in your BIOS so you can run it at 3200MHz and see if that makes a difference at all. You really shouldn't have any problems running your memory at the full speed it's rated for.
From the description, particularly when you describe the scenery change and the micro stutters appears and become consistent. It sounds like you're running out of memory, which is possible at 16GB, but it really shouldn't be. This is more an issue of game optimization or the game not clearing the cached RAM properly. The next time this happens, check task manager. CPU, RAM and GPU usage. Let us know what they're at.
That's correct mike. I am running in 3600MHz now. I can wager the tech nerds like ourselves will rush to buy up the 3000 series GPU's once it hits the shelves of many Microcenters. I am not really an avid of AMD due to their recent lawsuit but I will sell this system in the future when 10th gen comes out, and rebuild my ITX system by just replacing the CPU and motherboard. Also I know this is a late thread but how come you guys don't usually stock ITX boards? Is it not that popular?
