you ask for applications which produce that kind of load:
what about 4k video encoding using dozens of effects and filters?
for example people often take handbrake as reference for testing stability
when it comes to this.
as for gaming kiddies,ok they don`t need an 100% rockstable oc;those guys
should invest in fast ram and do some optimizing in order to gain some fps.
so what is overclocking;raising v-core until the system passes the easiest tests?
even my little sister could do that
no its more about testing hours and hours and fiddling with the lowest possible voltages
in order to get an oc- system as stable as the non overclocked sytem would be while
running the hardest tests.Only my opinion-maybe too oldschool.
"Gaming Kiddie" here, 39, childhood passion, disabled combat veteran. Many of us here are "gaming kiddies" so you might want to keep your insults to yourself.
As far as "gaming kiddies" not needing a more powerful CPU, well yeah, that's why I was seeing a CPU bottleneck in all of the following titles, before and after 4930k @ 4.5 GHz vs. 8700k @ 5.1 GHz.
Dragon Age Inquisition, various areas, one notable village in the Hinterlands with a Griffon Statue, 70% GPU utilization and 60 FPS before, now 99% GPU utilzation and 90 FPS.
XCOM 2, 3D Vision (presumed 3 core bug induced by 3D Vision), looking at ship / menu, 75-80% GPU Utilization and 45-50 FPS before, now 99% utilization and 60 FPS (3D Vision, which is 120 FPS 2D).
GTA 5, looking out over Franklin's balcony at downtown Los Santos in 3D Vision, before 30 FPS, now 52. (I don't play this title in 3D Vision, I just wanted to see if it was playable now).
Zelda: Breath of the Wild on CEMU, Dueling Peaks Stables, before 23 FPS, now 40 FPS. The game went from unplayable to playable.
Mad Max, certain areas around Freya's Holdout, before 45 FPS, now 55 FPS.
Planetside 2, 48+/48+, before 40 FPS, now 60 FPS.
These were just the titles that I was able to get to.
Here's my Air 540, RIVBE, i7 4930k + 980 Ti as of February vs. Chelsea:
Back to the insults of immaturity.
Do you enjoy watching movies? Did you go view Star Wars: The Last Jedi? How about I call you a "movie kiddie"?
This equating the lack of maturity with an interest in video games is absolutely ridiculous.
Yeah, mankind's infatuation with simulated worlds is "totally immature".
Real maturity is reading the newspaper and editing 4K video! (The latter, a different form of delving into simulation, is TOTALLY different from a video game!).
