Out of the Box Gaming Performance: Resident Evil, Tomb Raider, GTA:V, Ashes of Singularity
We actually see the 2970WX do better in most games than the 2990WX, and we think this has to do with thermal and current headroom (25% fewer cores)that allows Precision Boost 2 increase frequency in mixed workloads in the 2970WX higher than in the 2990WX. Games love frequency, so that could explain what we are seeing.
Rise of the Tomb Raider is our one outlier, and we think it has to do with the game loving cores as much as it loves frequency and IPC. GTA:V loves frequency, and we see the 2970WX do significantly better than the 2990WX. However, no one should buy either CPU for gaming. The 2920X is much better for gaming than the previous generation 1900 series ThreadRipper CPUs.
