Here are some interesting results, with the 2950X offering big gains over its predecessor and the 2990WX making headway with the PBOD mode. In GTA:V we see the memory configuration of the 2990WX cause some issues, but that's why Game Mode exists, which we haven't covered here. In Rise of the Tomb Raider and Ashes of the Singularity: Escalation, we see the overclocked (Precision Boost Overdrive overclocked) 2990WX keep up, as those games like cores.
