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.
