You fail to understand that the CPU bottleneck isn't lifted. Sure it got on par with Intel using DX12 - but the only reason why is because the GPU usage capped due to using 4x MSAA and max settings to the point the CPU is no longer a factor anymore. Using max settings and 4x msaa will always raise the GPU load regardless of how your cpu performs. Add another 980 and you'll see a huge difference between AMD & Intel again because like I said the CPU bottleneck hasn't been lifted.
(Here it's clear the CPU bottlenecking is so obvious)
I mean, you can keep trying but you'll never prove DX12 is Vishera's saviour.
And soon a Zen upgrade to admit the 200$ purchase was a waste, right? It's so wrong to buy AMD right now, why would you? Zen is coming in like what 6 months orso?
Alpha build benchmark you linked to (you forgot to link to website)
nice Pre-Beta Build AotS [purOC 08/2015]
Beta 2 add performance and stability. Why not link to a Beta 2 or even better a Final Retail version benchmark of AotS result to illustrate your point.
SO you think 1080p low graphic detail setting (DX11 : 24.8 fps | DX 12 : 34.4 fps) on old Alpha version is easier then Retail version 1440p on Crazy at 42 fps.
Clearly one of us fails to understand what a CPU bottleneck. When the FX-8370 has the sameperformance as i7-6700K under DX 12 at 4k,1440p and 1080p on Retail version of a title is is GPU limited.
Async Compute is automatic disabled when AotS detects a nVidia card. Since it give negative performance due to Software compute queue instead of Hardware.
Lets just make up stuff, since you seem like you might be good at it, fictional D3D11 can talk to the CPU with one or two cores max. Let say totally fictional new version D3D12
adds a feature that lets it talk to beyond two cores. Why not say even six cores of your CPU at the same time. Would that eliminate a CPU bottleneck ?
So if Zen is a success people buying a 8 core (4M/8T) wasted their money while a dual core intel build will be future proof because they will be able to purchase a $200- $350 quad core.
Intel has separated their high performance desktop series from mainstream for the last 7 generations. But even if they would make a 6 or 8 core LGA 1151 would you trust your $50 motherboard to handle it. Budget Future Proof PC [BFPPC] are called consoles. You should look into it.
