Is a middle-aged eight-core processor enough for modern games? Compare Ryzen 7 2700X vs Ryzen 7 5800X, Core i7-10700K, and Core i7-11700K

Massive eight-core desktop processors have been on the market for several years now. Is one of the first such CPUs enough for modern games?

The source decided to compare the Ryzen 7 2700X and the more recent Ryzen 7 5800X, Core i7-10700K, and Core i7-11700K. All processors have eight cores, but the oldest and newest models are separated by three years. Not much, and games, as we know, primarily require a powerful GPU. However, in reality, the situation is not so straightforward.

The results tell us that in Full HD at maximum graphics quality settings, the old Ryzen lags behind the new one by an average of 23%, and in some games the gap reaches 35-40%. Let’s clarify: this is with the Radeon RX 6900 XT video card. In the case of Intel processors in Full HD, the difference averages 19%.

If we increase the resolution to 1440p, then the Ryzen 7 5800X is only 13% ahead of the old man, and in 4K the difference drops to 4%, which can be neglected.

Thus, it turns out that modern games are still very sensitive to processors, because even three years was enough for a modern CPU to be far ahead of its predecessor. In the case of 4K resolution, which is actively gaining momentum, there is no point in bothering to change the processor to a more modern one, since everything depends on the GPU.

It is also worth remembering a similar test half a year ago with six-core CPUs. There we saw that in the case of less productive video cards of the level of the Radeon RX 5700 XT and below, even in Full HD, there is no point in the new processor either.
