RWV: Fustercluck Nekros Polymer Bundle Farm on 2600X and RX 590. (Hosting). 3 Player.

Here's a cool one. Since I said I'm going to dedicate my 3700X for World Community Grid, 24/7, lately, here is a video of me playing Warframe on the Ryzen 5 2600X / Radeon RX 590 rig that essentially sits next to my desktop as my "backup" PC.

This is a cool one because it really shows that Ryzen 2nd generation is still awesome for gaming. If you want the low-down, I'm using a 120 Hz 1080p display, and I'm hosting (that means my CPU is doing a lot more work; AI, etc) and there are 3 players including me, two of which are using Nekros with Shadows of the Dead. I also threw down a Clem Clone for good measure.

Well, see for yourself. It's a pretty mental Fustercluck and one of the reasons why I love Warframe. Starting off GPU bound at over 100 FPS, it becomes CPU bound as the mobs start spawning more quickly, but the Ryzen 5 2600X is a champ and keeps it well over 60 essentially all of the time. I think I saw 58 FPS once, otherwise mid 70s or early 80s the entire time. See for yourself:

Oh, and the 2600X is in cTDP = 65W mode. That means as the cores get loaded up, he will boost a bit lower than a normal 2600X. (This is for WCG perf/watt, I don't disable it for gaming). In a nutshell in this mode it is a 2600X in lightly threaded workloads, but more like a 2600 non X in heavier threaded ones. In Warframe, it is probably somewhere in between. I think it might lose about 150-200 MHz here, so take that into consideration.

PC Spec:

  • Ryzen 5 2600X @ stock (cTDP 65W)

  • 2x8 GB DDR4-2933 C16-18-18-36 1T

  • Gigabyte AB350M-D3V

  • XFX Radeon RX 590 Fatboy @ ref clocked (1545 MHz) and tuned (1100mV) (XFX's Bios is retarded).

You can see the On-Screen Display for hardware statistics such as temperatures, clocks, load and Frame-rate. :D
