Phh. Is that a 15% increase on BF1 just through unparking?
Between HPET, core parking, faster memory speeds, SMT work and BIOS revisions this thing should be screaming in 2 or 3 months. No doubt.
First and foremost Microsoft's support for Ryzen should be the initial jolt which increases Ryzen's performance the most. Vulkan and DX12 being the cherry on top, games have the potential to eliminate much their rendering thread's overhead which could completely nullify the gaming argument exponentially. I keep reiterating low-level because it lowers the dependency on fast IPC and that is inevitably where the industry is headed.
There's no doubt that given some time the gaming benchmarks may look very contrary to the initial reviews. Can't wait to grab an R7.
A single frame doesn't make for any kind of comparison, you need min/avg/max
Ive been holding out for an upgrade for a long time. Good to know quad cores are getting extremely dated as technology moves on. My i5 760 still works but I cant wait to go from quad core to 8 core. Superior in every way for the future of gaming on a PC.
Edit : whoops, meant to quote that battlefield 95% utilization on all cores on that poor intel i5 getting choked out screenshot.
Farewel happy Fields; Where Joy for ever dwells; Hail horrours, hail; Infernal world, and thou profoundest Hell; Receive thy new Possessor; One who brings; A mind not to be chang'd by Place or Time; The mind is its own place, and in it self; Can make a Heav'n of Hell, a Hell of Heav'n.
takes me around 1.47v for 4.0 to be benchable, I have found that it doesn't need quite as much voltage when using a little extra bclk over pure multi though, will try and confirm that in the coming days though.
I did some 3D testing and eventhou there is not nearly enough data to confirm it, I'd say the SMT regression is infact a Windows 10 related issue.
In 3D testing I did recently on Windows 10, the title which illustrated the biggest SMT regression was Total War: Warhammer.
All of these were recorded at 3.5GHz, 2133MHz MEMCLK with R9 Nano:
At the moment this is just pure speculation as there were variables, which could not be isolated.
Windows 10 figures were recorded using PresentMon (OCAT), however with Windows 7 it was necessary to use Fraps.
Was your memory not stable at 1.35v? I'm assuming you have the Trident Z model that is rated to do 14-14-14-34 at 1.35v. Or did you just go to 1.5v to be on the safe side?
Finally got to upload the screengrab of my max oc on cpu and mem, here you go.
Oh, and this on an H80i with 10°C ambient. There might be more to come when I get a working board and non-leaking waterblock.

I have opened a technical support case for rma at Asus, but have not heard back from them yet. I will keep you posted on anything I might find out about the self-destroying C6H's.
