Page 3 : The AMD Ryzen 7 Gaming Performance In The Witcher 3, Summary
The Witcher 3 : Wild Hunt (1080p)
At 1080p, The Witcher 3 was about 1.5% slower with the Ryzen 7 1800X on average.
The Witcher 3 : Wild Hunt (4K)
The AMD Ryzen 7 1800X is definitely a far more powerful processor than the Intel Core i7-6700K. It has twice as many cores, and far more memory bandwidth. But it is obvious that most games are unable to make use of all that.
Games that run in the lower, mainstream resolution of 1920 x 1080 will be slightly slower with the Ryzen 7 1800X. It’s not much slower though – about 5% on average.
Obviously, at the 4K resolution, the graphics card is far, far more important than the CPU. But as the Warhammer and The Witcher 3 results show, the Ryzen 7 1800X actually helped to push up the minimum frame rate.
If you are going to buy the Ryzen 7 1800X for gaming, you are not going to worry about the small 5% deficit in 1080p frame rates, because you will most likely be playing in 1440p or 2160p resolutions.
